Build a fingerprint-recognition locking box with Arduino

In a belated spirit of Halloween and also an interesting Arduino-based project, Matt Reamer has created a locking box that can be opened using a fingerprint reader. Putting the humour in the following video to one side, it's an interesting method of adding security access devices to various projects.

Doing so offers a neater and more contemporary look than barrel locks or numeric keypads, and the code is quite simple. Matt runs us through his example in the following video:

For more information including the example Arduino sketches, check out Matt's github pageAnd for more, we're on twitter and Google+, so follow us for news and product updates as well. 

When adding your own external circuitry to work with your Arduino or compatible board, don't mount a breadboard in the final project! Instead, consider our range of ProtoShields. From the tiny LeoStick to the Mega range, we offer a complete range for you to work with.
