Thank you very much that is what I needed. If I wanted to connect a cell phone to the same project to be able to unlock the box via text is that possible by using only one Arduino board? Or do you all already have a kit similar as such?
That sounds like a great project! You would probably need something like a GPRS/GSM shield. We don't have any firsthand experience with that shield so we don't have a tutorial for that. There is some good information on it here: http://labs.arduino.cc/GPRS/Index
Thanks last questions here, I looked at the suggested Arduino board for the lock box project could I instead use the Arduino Uno R3? If not, if I order the suggested one could It come assembled already?
An UNO-R3 will work fine for that project. If you are going to add the GPRS/GSM shield, I'd suggest using a larger box than the one in the example. There isn't enough room to stack a shield inside the false-lid on the 4x6 card file. But Vaultz and similar boxes come in a variety of sizes.
Finally starting to try and do the fingerprint scanner project but currently running into a few problems. One problem is when I hook up the fingerprint scanner directly into the Arduino board the red light of the scanner comes on for only a fraction of a second. i have the Red wire-5V pin, Black wire- Gnd, White wire- Pin 3 and Green wire to Pin 2.
The second problem have encountred is loading the correct library i guess. The libary i loaded was the Adafruit_fingerprint.cpp but when i try and upload it to my Arduino Uno board i recieve this error:
core.a(main.cpp.o): In function `main': C:\Users\Guest\Downloads\arduino-1.0.3-windows\arduino-1.0.3\hardware\arduino\cores\arduino/main.cpp:11: undefined reference to `setup' C:\Users\Guest\Downloads\arduino-1.0.3-windows\arduino-1.0.3\hardware\arduino\cores\arduino/main.cpp:14: undefined reference to `loop'
I am unfamiliar with the SFGdemo. This is my first time doing an Arduino project. Had gotten a little lost with the fingerprint enrolment video from adafruit at the part it instructs about the library.
