Designed to use with the 'Sycreader RFID Technology Co., Ltd SYC ID&IC USB Reader'

With minor changes can be used with any RFID reader device.

The program binds the rfid reader to the terminal which started the script.

This way the terminal only accepts input from the device and can be run in the background.

You can stop the script with the Control + c key combination.

Before running the script you have to set permission of /dev/input/

by sudo chown <user who runs the script> -R /dev/input/

Known issues

After reconnecting the device or force stopping the script (Control + z) permission have to be set again.Otherwise the device won't be seen.

External libraries

- evdev python library

pip3 install evdev

You can’t perform that action at this time.
