The arduino folder contains sketches to have an Arduino or Teensy emulate a badge reader to send collected badge codes to the badge receiver using the Wiegand protocol. The folder also contains 2 programs that can allow an Arduino to interface with the HID badge reader to read badges in place of a Pi.
