RFID query: Programming RFID lock to accept "pre-existing" RFID chips? Answered
I have no prior programming skills, and only a basic understanding of RFID technology. As my initiation to Arduino programming, I would like to build an RFID door lock/catch. I know you can buy RFID tags to program the system to accept, but can you also program the reader to accept other items you may have with an RFID chip? I'm not sure what other components might be in place to prevent that from functioning. Disney has RFID chip embedded bracelets, for instance which are used for a variety of things around the park.
They way I imagine the programming is that the reader reads an RFID and then records that ID to accept? Is there much more to that?
Apologies for my ignorance at this point. Thanks to anyone for their clarification!
