This is a simple walkthrough on how to make a lock controlled with RFID tags. I show a few simple locking mechanisms, and also how to download and setup the RC522 RFID reader module. All the information is in the video.

The sketch/code and more project information can be found here:http://duinos.net/show/?id=220

The library can be downloaded from here:https://github.com/miguelbalboa/rfid

    Hi

    Brilliant project, works perfect with a servo.

    I was wondering if you knew of a way to add say a push button to this for opening a door from the inside and what extra code would be needed.

    Thanks

    Do you have the schematic or a Fritzing layout? I'm not sure where to plug in the servo. I probably just missed it somewhere in the video. Thanks!
