Integrating Access Control System with Hackerspaces Passport and Membership Software Answered

Jigsaw Renaissance are looking into integrating Nadine and Hackerspaces Passport with our door locks.

If you are able to commit time to help us designing or building, please post to: Inscape Access Control System
- If you are interested in the project, please go to the group and sign up.
- There will be opportunities to work on embedded firmware, electronics, mechanics, encryption, and the membership software application.
- You can then control whether to get each email separately or receive a digest once a day.

About the project:
This project will provide an electronic door access for our new building. The project will involve providing several badge readers (probably RFID), and door lock controllers as well as a car park induction loop.

Finally there is a need for software that manages the keys and access privileges. This software must be easy to use as the building landlord will use it.

Jigsaw Renaissance is a learning and making community, a collaborative community dedicated to collective education and creation. Our mission is to create an environment in which success, failure, and most of all discovery are celebrated. Our vision is that this environment will foster an enduring sense of wonder and a drive to effect change in ourselves, our communities, and the world.

Am I right in thinking that you can only contribute to, or comment on, the JR website if you have paid your membership dues?

I couldn't seem to find a free forum on the site - is that all done through google groups?

Hi Kiteman, you can comment on the blog articles, but for this project, it's all done through the Google Group. Which part of the project are you interested in?

Thank you for this article: https://www.instructables.com/id/How-to-Use-Instructables-at-School/

I would like to use instructables for Jigsaw Renaissance. Possibly embed some articles on our site. I wonder if this is possible.

I'm just "generally interested" in hacker groups all over the place. I can't get directly involved in JR, because I'm in the UK, but I like to watch from afar.

As for embedding, I don't know, it's not something I've tried.
