In this project, we are going to build an RFID Based Access Control System using 8051 Micro Controller. The same system can be named like RFID based door lock or RFID based access management system. If you have been to big hospitals or companies, you might have seen how they used RFID based locks to restrict access to certain areas. In hospitals, only hospital staff with approved RFID tags can access Intensive Care Unit and such restricted areas. So lets begin to build the system.
Before reading further, you need to fully understand How to Interface RFID Reader to 8051 Microcontroller. Read this article before you attempt to make RFID based access control system.
An RFID based Door Lock or Access Control System is based on some simple concepts. We store a set of RFID card data in our system, say 3 or 10 RFID card data. When the person with the right RFID card (compatible to data preloaded in our program/system) come and swipes his RFID tag, access will be granted. When the person with the wrong RFID card (whose data is not loaded in our system) swipes his RFID tag, access will be denied. I hope you understand the system concept of RFID based Door Lock.
The full circuit diagram for interfacing RFID module to 8051 is shown above. The unique ID code in the RFID card is read by the circuit and displayed on the 16×2 LCD display. Tx pin of the RFID module is connected to Port 3.5 of the microcontroller. The microcontroller receives data from the RFID module through this channel. Switch S1, capacitor C1 and resistor R1 forms the reset circuit. Capacitor C2, C3 and crystal X1 are associated with the reset circuit.

The program is self explanatory.
