Introduction: RFID RC522 and Normal DC Motor

My inspiration comes from a link: https://www.instructables.com/id/Arduino-RC522-RFI... On my own I have a DC motor and RFID RC522. By keeping those both in mind, I was wondering if I could do something useful as door unlocking/locking. So let's start!

For this project we need:

-Arduino board

-DC motor

-L298N chip (motor driver)

-Power Supply (5V-12V)

-Resistances (3x220OHM)

-RGB LED

-RFID RC522 (with a tag and a card)

Step 1: Connect Motor Driver to Arduino Board and to DC Motor

Arduino pins_________Motor Driver (L298N) pins

GND____________pin#1 (Current Sensing)

D2______________pin#5 (Input1)

D3______________pin#7 (Input2)

A3______________pin#6 (Enable1)

5V______________pin#9 (Logic Supply Voltage)

GND____________pin#8 (GND)

Power Supply

+(5-12V)_________pin#4(Supply Voltage)

-________________pin#8(GND)

Step 2: Connect RFID RC522 to Arduino Board

Yes. But, I would like to integrate a stepper motor instead of usual DC. I am working on.

Is your end result going to be some sort of ID card based door access?
