Door Hacking Night

Ever wonder why the front door has given us so much trouble? Wonder no longer. Come and marvel at the considerations involved in building a working door system. Open to members and the public, you'll find out firsthand why implementing electronic access is such a pain in the butt!
This Tuesday's session will revolve around figuring out how to reliably trigger the electronic strike from an arduino without blowing things up. I've got an SSR, an arduino, and a sacrificial netbook, so come on down and watch me release some magic smoke.
Door Hacking
Tuesday, February 1st, 7PM AMT
Open to the public 



I rang the doorbell about 4 times at 7:10. and no one answered...


I wanted to suggest three steps for the door hacking (in order of criticality):
1. set up basic 125KHz RFID keycard access system 
2. linking system with LDAP/Drupal
3. securing system against exploits
