Arduino 125 kHz RFID Kit
Arduino 125 kHz RFID Kit: Essential for getting started with RFID
- an Arduino Atmega328 Uno Rev. 3 board
- a 125 kHz (low frequency) RFID module fitted with a Sonmicro SM125 RFID chip
These are the basic ingredients for DIY creation based on RFID technology: you can use the 125 kHz RFID module as an RFID reader, and with certain badges it can also become an RFID writer (writing to an RFID card). It all depends on whether you want to use a read-only board (EM4100) or programmable boards (type T5557).
Arduino 125 kHz RFID Kit: some application examples
To be honest, the possibilities offered by RFID are so numerous that your own imagination will take you far beyond all the examples we could give you. From the most basic to the most daring, possibilities include a door whose opening is controlled by RFID, an RFID shelving unit in your wine cellar providing information about the bottles stored there (very useful when the labels become unreadable!) and a toy capable of reacting to its surroundings. So start out with a simple RFID module and its board, then add numerous sensors and actuators to join in the fun!
