    Feature Request - Weignad reader ?

    ** Moved this to feature request thread.. **

    Hi Greig

    I've ordered myself a Weigand card reader to use as an access control system on my house. The reader will do all of the authentication in a standalone form however it has D0 and D1 outputs to interface with the Arduino.

    i've had a good look around and there appears to be some very good weigand libraries to do the reader management.

    I'm going to use your API function to see how this thing works (when all of the parts arrive).

    Reason I ask this, if I use the API, its going to limit the use of the board longer term. If the library works well and makes Weigand interfacing easy, would you consider adding it to your base build ? Reason for the interface is to read the card ID and then "personalise" the house upon entry depending on what card entered the house ie: lighting, music, aircon etc....

    Thanks Pete

    I wish I could add lots more to the boards as standard but we are pushing it as it is. I can not see a resonance not to use the API and are you planning on running more than 9 boards!

      Hi Greig

      I'm just looking at possibilities <chuckle>. 9 boards in the arduino world isn't that much if you are trying to use distributed UNOs but if its MEGAs, yes a HUGE amount of I/O :-) , hey I can only ask :-)

      Suspect I'm going to see if the API code will compile with the Wiegand Library on the Nano, if not UNO and then MEGA if needed. I see you can get W5100 ethernet cards in the small footprint like ENC28J60 cards, that will make for a very nice small access control solution for 2 doors I have.

      I tried to get the EN28J60 network card/Nano/UIPEthernet library working, no go. Have you ever tried this combo ?
