RFID Lockbox

This instructable was created in fulfillment of the project requirement of the Makecourse at the University of South Florida (
This Inscrutable will take you through all of the steps necessary to build your own arduino controlled RFID Lockbox. The final product will use an RFID reader along with RFID chips to lock and unlock your deposit box.
The Lockbox uses a rechargeable battery to power itself.
One can open it with the RFID Chips, but if for some reason you want to use the original key, of course you can do so. Only now you need to disarm it with your own secret combination.
I found the project fun, and I learned alot about programming.
This was my first Arduino Project, so enjoy, but keep in mind there could be many improvements.”
