Hackerspace Adelaide's RFID/NFC door access system
|Purpose||To announce one's entry to a hack session|
|Time spent||10 man-hours|
An Arduino based RFID/NFC door access system that sends users welcome information to LED signs in the hackerspace, as well as pinging the future hackerspace website to count user visits to the space.
- Ability to use cheap RFID fobs available from hackerspace adelaide.
- Ability to use Android (and iOS?) on phone NFC for entry.
- Talks wirelessly to an in house LED board.
- Talks over the internet to the hackerspace member website.

 ATR vs ATS
It sounds like ATR values are made up by the reader, partly from the ATS.
From the spec, section 220.127.116.11.3:
For contactless ICCs, the IFD subsystem must construct an ATR from the fixed elements that identify the cards.
That section describes the format of the ATR.
