Connecting a HID Prox Pro II RFID reader to Arduino
November 23, 2016
Arduino based RFID reader projects are a dime a dozen. It’s great and wonderful how plentiful and easy they are. Checking out Adafruit or Sparkfun one can find dozens of cheap components that are almost ready to go. The common factor is that they are all 13.56Mhz or Mifare compatible. Nominally this means cheap (And plentiful) components and fobs, but it also means that the systems aren’t compatible with most professional RFID badge systems. What if you want to hook up a “professional” grade system like a HID Prox-compatible reader? Turns out it isn’t that hard either.
