Every wanted to add biometric security to your Arduino project? You are in the right place! Adding fingerprint biometric security to your house or apartment could provide convenient and secure keyless entry, and will certainly create an interesting talking point when you have people over. This project works using a fingerprint module that can store up to 1000 fingerprints and has a false detection rate of 0.001%, so you can sleep easy at night! Completing a project such as this is a great way to increase your Arduino skills and is sure to be a lot of fun. To get started check out the following video:
When creating your fingerprint sensor you will want some form of display to provide feedback to the user to let them know if their fingerprint was successful or not. Why not check out the Freetronics OLED Stick LCD Adapter. The adaptor is designed to work with the Freetronics LeoStick and will allow you easily connect a 128X128 pixel OLED module to the compact LeoStick, so that you can keep your fingerprint sensor as small as possible.
