Uses a Tessel with an RFID module to sense an RFID card. When RFID card is sensed, the UID is sent over Tessel's Wifi to a Keen.io database.
When you try to access the secret page on the website (running on a separate Node server), it checks the Keen database to see if you should be allowed to access the page.
- Clone this repo.
- Make a new project on Keen.
- Make a config.json in the main folder, following example-config.json and use the keys from your new Keen project.
- Once you've set up your config.json in the main directory, also copy it into the 'tessel' folder.
- In the "webapp" folder,
npm installto install dependencies, and then run an instance of the app (
- In a separate terminal window, in the "tessel" folder,
npm installto install dependencies
- Make sure tessel is connected to wifi, then run the app with
tessel run index.js. Once it's set up, if you put a card on the reader, it should log to Keen.
- Go to the Node instance in your browser and try to access the secret page. You'll probably want to add an authorized RFID card to the variable
- Muck around with it. What polling rate do you want? How long of a timeout do you want on authorization? There's plenty to poke around with in tessel's index.js and the webapp's route's index.js
