I don&#39;t have time to work on this, but I started a project for this exact purpose a few months ago. I have the database design drafted up for MySQL workbench, and started on stored procedures. If anyone is interested in checking it out and continuing on, the github link is: <a href="https://github.com/HackRVA/RFID-Access-Control-System">https://github.com/HackRVA/RFID-Access-Control-System</a>. Fork away!<div>
