PIC's & RFID's 2

Im a happy bunny,

I've got the card entry system working now
One card allows entry the other sets off the alarms
Once the correct card is detected, a pass code has to be entered.
Wrong code, (Or wrong card) sets off the alarms and a reset code is needed.

Program developed using Flowcode 4, and Martix Multimedia Hardware

Next stages
Add more acceptable cards by storing them in the system.
Add more security by using the whole of the cards ID rather than the first byte of it.
Add a bigger colour display to allow better messages

PIC's & RFID's

Having another "play" with the PIC System.
Just added an RFID card reader module to it. This comes with a selection of cards to experiment with,
Been writing a simple card entry door lock system.
At the moment it will activate a relay if one specific card is inserted, and turn on the alarm with any other.
The cards all have a unique ID programmed into them. The current system is simple and uses only the first byte of the UID. Using the full one will make it more secure but needs a lot more program code.
