Finally got around to making a RFID door lock for my basement door. My house is really weird and has this door from the garage to the basement. I’m not complaining since it’s super convenient for moving big stuff down there though. I made this with mostly a bunch of old stuff I got off eBay. Specs are:
- HID ThinLine II Wall Switch reader, mounted to a 1 gang box on the cinderblock outside the door.
- Von Duprin electric strike, 12vdc
- Generic Chinese Wiegand TCP/IP access controller board
All powered by my battery backed 12 volt system. The whole thing will run for a little less than 7 hours after a power outage. I need to up the time it’ll run after an outage but it’ll do for now.
