https://github.com/omersiar/esp-rfid

Image

Access Control demonstration using a cheap RC522 RFID Hardware and Espressif's ESP8266 Microcontroller.

Features

[*] Using WebSocket protocol to exchange data between Hardware and Web Browser
[*] Data is encoded as JSON object
[*] Records are Timestamped (Time synced from a NTP Server)
[*] Bootstrap for beautiful Web Pages
[*] Built-in HTML Editor
[*] Thanks to ESPAsyncWebServer Library communication is Asyncronous

Join the development at github https://github.com/omersiar/esp-rfid. Pull Requests are welcomed.

Serve pre-compiled binaries
Logging access
Password Protection or Authentication for Tags instead trusting UID
Settings Panel for Wi-Fi, PICC Password, Factory Reset, NTP Client, etc
Schedule User Access
Polished web pages
Sync Time from Browser if no internet connection
Use Sming Framework for Development

Getting Started

Please install Arduino IDE if you don't already, then add ESP8266 Core on top of it. Additional Library download links are listed below:

Arduino IDE - The development IDE
ESP8266 Core for Arduino IDE - ESP8266 Core
ESPAsyncWebServer - Asyncrone Web Server with WebSocket Plug-in
ESPAsyncTCP - Mandatory for ESPAsyncWebServer
NTPClient - NTP Library for Arduino IDE
MFRC522 - MFRC522 RFID Hardware Library for Arduino IDE
ArduinoJson - JSON Library for Arduino IDE

You may also need

ESP8266FS Uploader - Arduino ESP8266 filesystem uploader

Unlisted libraries are part of ESP8266 Core for Arduino IDE, so you don't need to download them.

Known Issues

Built-in HTML Editor has hard-coded JavaScript that loads from CDN Internet
