Access Control[edit]

Noisebridge has tended towards default-open since its creation. At various times in the past, this hasn't worked so well.

There is a list of accredited RFID tags, along with their access level. It is kept on a Raspberry Pi. Only the board & officers may edit the list of accredited tags


RFID reader at the top doors (elevator & staircase). Door strikes for both. Controlled by a raspberry pi.

Access policies[edit]

As designed by Mitch and the Access Control committee.

  1. Noisebridge is as open as possible
  2. The Greeter is responsible for closing the space at night.
  3. Noisebridge is open from 10am-11pm daily as long as there is a person available to let people in.
  4. The last person to leave at night is responsible for closing the space

Greeting People[edit]

When you have active RFID access and know how to greet people, then you may open the door for people who ring the bell. If the person is new, be sure to give them a tour. If you let a person in, then you are responsible for the person while they are in the space.

Being a Guest[edit]

If the person responsible for you is leaving, then you need to leave with them or find someone else to be responsible for you.


Henner has built an access control circuit for the Raspberry Pi. We have door strikes, readers, and some relays.
