Project Description

To build a modular RFID system used to trigger an unlocking mechanism for four of the the entry doors into the Red Mountain Makers makerspace. Eventually the RFID switching mechanism will be re-purposed for application on the two meeting room inner door locks and all shop tool AC outlets. The system should be built to log entry/exit data
