Freetronics RFID Door Lock Shield
Based on the circuit described in the "RFID Access Control" project in the book "Practical Arduino", this shield allows you to control a door lock using an electric strike plate using a number of commonly available RFID reader modules.
Supported reader modules include:
- HF MultiTag
- Reset button wired through to Arduino reset pin.
- Blue "Arduino power on" LED with current-limiting resistor.
- 100nF bypass/smoothing capacitor on supply rails.
- Overlay guide where you need it: both top and bottom.
Compatible with the Freetronics TwentyTen, Arduino Uno, Arduino Duemilanove, and other compatible boards based on the same header format.
