Authentication with RFID tags?


I'm looking for a way for users to authenticate themselves before pouring a drink via the tablet (iPad 3). I assume it is possible to connect a RFID reader to the RPI but does the software support this or can it be altered to support this? I would be very thankfull for all input I could get on this matter.


PS. I have a kegerator system in my home bar that requires RFID identification so it would be great if the bartendro also could do this. DS.

Hi Bjorn,

It is possible to hook up an RFID reader to the RPI through one of the two accessory ports on the Router board, or even over USB. Unfortunately though, the code was not architected to have different user profiles. While it is something we may get to someday, it is not something we will be implementing anytime soon. Hopefully, someone in the community can implement this, or if you do, please let us know and we can incorporate it into our next release.

I will have one of my friends who has programming skills to look into this and get back to you!
