RFID based Attendance System using Arduino & SIM800L Module

RFID based Attendance System with SMS Notification

Overview: RFID based Attendance System

In this tutorial, we are going to show you an RFID based Attendance System using Arduino & SIM800L Module with SMS notifications. We can use this project to take the student’s and office employees’ attendance. It sends the SMS notification whenever they join or leave the school/work. So, this is one of the popular experimental projects among high school and college students.

Date & Time with DS3231 RTC Module

The key function of this project is, when you place an RFID card/tag on the RFID reader, it scans the card checks the card UID stored on the microcontroller. Then it sends the SMS to the pre-defined mobile number with the help of the GSM Module when a valid card UID is found.

Setting Up Arduino IDE

Download and Install all these required libraries files for this project.

You can also install these library files manually from the Arduino IDE Library Manager.

SPI.h and MFRC522.h are for the RFID reader. Liquidcrystal_I2C.h is for LCD. Software serial. h is for serial communication between Arduino and GSM Module. DS3231.h is for RTC Module.

#include <SPI.h>
#include <MFRC522.h>
#include <Wire.h>
#include <LiquidCrystal_I2C.h>
#include <SoftwareSerial.h>
#include <DS3231.h>

Program Source Code

Here is the brief explanation of the program code. After adding the library header file, we Initialize the Arduino pins that are connected with the LCD and GSM modules.

// Set the LCD address to 0x27 for a 16 chars and 2 line display
LiquidCrystal_I2C lcd(0x27, 16, 2);
SoftwareSerial sim(6, 7);

Declare a string for which number you want to send the SMS notification.

String number = "+9779862xxxxx"; // +977 is the country code

Here, I declare five integer-type variables.

int state1 = 0;
int state2 = 0;
int state3 = 0;
int state4 = 0;
int state5 = 0;

Define the buzzer pin and RFID SDA and RST pins.

#define buzzerPin  A1
#define RST_PIN    A0
#define SDA_PIN    10

Create an RFID MFRC522 and DS3231 instance.

MFRC522 mfrc522(SDA_PIN, RST_PIN);
DS3231  rtc(SDA, SCL);

In the setup section, I initialize the LCD, serial monitor, GSM module, RFID, and RTC module. Set the buzzer pins as output and print the welcome message to the LCD.

void setup() {

  lcd.begin();
  // Turn on the blacklight
  lcd.backlight();
  Serial.begin(9600);
  sim.begin(9600);
  SPI.begin();
  mfrc522.PCD_Init();
  rtc.begin();

  pinMode(buzzerPin, OUTPUT);

  lcd.setCursor(0, 0);
  lcd.print("  WELCOME TO  ");
  lcd.setCursor(0, 1);
  lcd.print("The IoT Projects");
  delay(4000);
  lcd.clear();
}

Inside the loop function, there are two user-defined functions: RTC & RFID

void loop() {
  RTC();
  rfid();
}

RTC Function

In the RTC function, these three lines of code are used to set the date and time.

void RTC()
{
  //rtc.setDOW(SATURDAY);     // Set Day-of-Week to SUNDAY
  //rtc.setTime(08, 50, 0);     // Set the time to 12:00:00 (24hr format)
  //rtc.setDate(10, 12, 2021);   // Set the date to January 1st, 2014

Next, I print the message to the LCD.

lcd.setCursor(0, 0);
  lcd.print("Put Your Card to" );
  lcd.setCursor(0, 1);
  lcd.print("the Reader......");
  delay(3000);
  lcd.clear();

If you want to display Date and Time on LCD instead of the message uncomment, these lines of code.

 lcd.setCursor(0, 0);
  lcd.print("Time: ");
  lcd.print(rtc.getTimeStr());
  lcd.setCursor(0, 1);
  lcd.print("Date: ");
  lcd.print(rtc.getDateStr());
  delay(2000);
  lcd.clear();

RFID Function

Now in the RFID function: These lines are used to read the RFID tag and return the tag UID as a Hexadecimal number.

void rfid()
{
  // Look for new cards
  if ( ! mfrc522.PICC_IsNewCardPresent())
  {
    return;
  }
  // Select one of the cards
  if ( ! mfrc522.PICC_ReadCardSerial())
  {
    return;
  }
  //Show UID on serial monitor
  String content = "";
  byte letter;
  for (byte i = 0; i < mfrc522.uid.size; i++)
  {
    Serial.print(mfrc522.uid.uidByte[i] < 0x10 ? " 0" : " ");
    Serial.print(mfrc522.uid.uidByte[i], HEX);
    content.concat(String(mfrc522.uid.uidByte[i] < 0x10 ? " 0" : " "));
    content.concat(String(mfrc522.uid.uidByte[i], HEX));
  }

  content.toUpperCase();

Here, In this code, I have defined five UID tags for 5 different people. Here I compare the UID. If the UID value matches with the tag UID then, Buzzer gives a beep and LCD shows the details about the tag holder. Also, send an SMS notification to the default number.

if (content.substring(1) == "76 91 74 F8" && state1 == 0) //change here the UID of the card/cards that you want to give access
  {
    beepON();
    lcd.clear();
    lcd.setCursor(7, 0);
    lcd.print("Alsan    ");
    lcd.setCursor(7, 1);
    lcd.print("000001");
    info();
    SendAlsan();
    state1 = 1;
  }
  else if (content.substring(1) == "76 91 74 F8" && state1 == 1) //change here the UID of the card/cards that you want to give access
  {
    beepON();
    lcd.clear();
    lcd.setCursor(7, 0);
    lcd.print("Alsan    ");
    lcd.setCursor(7, 1);
    lcd.print("000001");
    info();
    SendAlsan();
    state1 = 0;
  }
  else if (content.substring(1) == "39 EA B0 6D" && state2 == 0) //change here the UID of the card/cards that you want to give access
  {
    beepON();
    lcd.clear();
    lcd.setCursor(7, 0);
    lcd.print("Sophia    ");
    lcd.setCursor(7, 1);
    lcd.print("000002");
    info();
    SendSophia();
    state2 = 1;
  }
  else if (content.substring(1) == "39 EA B0 6D" && state2 == 1) //change here the UID of the card/cards that you want to give access
  {
    beepON();
    lcd.clear();
    lcd.setCursor(7, 0);
    lcd.print("Sophia    ");
    lcd.setCursor(7, 1);
    lcd.print("000002");
    info();
    SendSophia();
    state2 = 0;
  }
  else if (content.substring(1) == "A1 6E B5 D4" && state3 == 0) //change here the UID of the card/cards that you want to give access
  {
    beepON();
    lcd.clear();
    lcd.setCursor(7, 0);
    lcd.print("Azad    ");
    lcd.setCursor(7, 1);
    lcd.print("000003");
    info();
    SendAzad();
    state3 = 1;
  }
  else if (content.substring(1) == "A1 6E B5 D4" && state3 == 1) //change here the UID of the card/cards that you want to give access
  {
    beepON();
    lcd.clear();
    lcd.setCursor(7, 0);
    lcd.print("Azad    ");
    lcd.setCursor(7, 1);
    lcd.print("000003");
    info();
    SendAzad();
    state3 = 0;
  }
  else if (content.substring(1) == "F1 72 62 D5" && state4 == 0) //change here the UID of the card/cards that you want to give access
  {
    beepON();
    lcd.clear();
    lcd.setCursor(7, 0);
    lcd.print("Akib    ");
    lcd.setCursor(7, 1);
    lcd.print("000004");
    info();
    SendAkib();
    state4 = 1;
  }
  else if (content.substring(1) == "F1 72 62 D5" && state4 == 1) //change here the UID of the card/cards that you want to give access
  {
    beepON();
    lcd.clear();
    lcd.setCursor(7, 0);
    lcd.print("Akib    ");
    lcd.setCursor(7, 1);
    lcd.print("000004");
    info();
    SendAkib();
    state4 = 0;
  }
  else if (content.substring(1) == "21 BD 21 D5" && state5 == 0) //change here the UID of the card/cards that you want to give access
  {
    beepON();
    lcd.clear();
    lcd.setCursor(7, 0);
    lcd.print("Noman    ");
    lcd.setCursor(7, 1);
    lcd.print("000005");
    info();
    SendNoman();
    state5 = 1;
  }
  else if (content.substring(1) == "21 BD 21 D5" && state5 == 1) //change here the UID of the card/cards that you want to give access
  {
    beepON();
    lcd.clear();
    lcd.setCursor(7, 0);
    lcd.print("Noman    ");
    lcd.setCursor(7, 1);
    lcd.print("000005");
    info();
    SendNoman();
    state5 = 0;
  }
  else   {
    digitalWrite(buzzerPin, HIGH);
    lcd.clear();
    lcd.setCursor(0, 0);
    lcd.print("ID : ");
    lcd.print("Unknown");
    lcd.setCursor(0, 1);
    lcd.print("Access denied");
    Serial.println(" Access denied");
    delay(1500);
    digitalWrite(buzzerPin, LOW);
    lcd.clear();
  }
}

In the send (user) function, first LCD displays sending SMS message, then I set the GSM module in test mode. Next, send an SMS to the number. Here you can replace the message with your custom message. The code also sends the timestamps with the message. 

void smsSend()
{
  lcd.setCursor(0, 0);
  lcd.print("Sending SMS");
  for (int x = 11; x < 16; x++)
  {
    lcd.setCursor(x, 0);
    lcd.print(".");
    delay(1000);
  }

}
void beepON()
{
  digitalWrite(buzzerPin, HIGH);
  delay(200);
  digitalWrite(buzzerPin, LOW);
  delay(100);
}
void info()
{
  lcd.setCursor(0, 0);
  lcd.print("Name : ");
  lcd.setCursor(0, 1);
  lcd.print("ID   : ");
  delay(1500);
  lcd.clear();
  lcd.setCursor(0, 0);
  lcd.print("Authorized Access");
  delay(1000);
  lcd.clear();
}

void SendAlsan()
{
  lcd.setCursor(0, 0);
  lcd.print("SMS Sending");
  sim.println("AT+CMGF=1");
  delay(1000);
  sim.println("AT+CMGS=\"" + number + "\"\r");
  delay(1000);
 

When state1=0 it sends the joining message, and when state1=1, it sends the leaving message.

if (state1 == 0) {
    const char Alsan[] = "No: 000001 Alsan Parajuli has joined school at ";
    sim.print(Alsan);
  }
  else if (state1 == 1) {
    const char Alsan[] = "No: 000001 Alsan Parajuli has gone from school at ";
    sim.print(Alsan);
  }
  sim.println(rtc.getTimeStr());
  delay(100);
  sim.println((char)26);
  smsSend();
}

Then I repeated the same for the rest of the 4 employees/students.

void SendSophia()
{
  lcd.setCursor(0, 0);
  lcd.print("SMS Sending");
  sim.println("AT+CMGF=1");
  delay(1000);
  sim.println("AT+CMGS=\"" + number + "\"\r");
  delay(1000);
  if (state2 == 0) {
    const char Sophia[] = "No: 000002 Sophia has joined school at ";
    sim.print(Sophia);
  }
  else if (state2 == 1) {
    const char Sophia[] = "No: 000002 Sophia has gone from school at ";
    sim.print(Sophia);
  }
  sim.println(rtc.getTimeStr());
  delay(100);
  sim.println((char)26);
  smsSend();
}
void SendAzad()
{
  lcd.setCursor(0, 0);
  lcd.print("SMS Sending");
  sim.println("AT+CMGF=1");
  delay(1000);
  sim.println("AT+CMGS=\"" + number + "\"\r");
  delay(1000);
  if (state3 == 0) {
    const char Azad[] = "No: 000003  zad has joined school at ";
    sim.print(Azad);
  }
  else if (state3 == 1) {
    const char Azad[] = "No: 000003 Azad has gone from school at ";
    sim.print(Azad);
  }
  sim.println(rtc.getTimeStr());
  delay(100);
  sim.println((char)26);
  smsSend();
}
void SendAkib()
{
  lcd.setCursor(0, 0);
  lcd.print("SMS Sending");
  sim.println("AT+CMGF=1");
  delay(1000);
  sim.println("AT+CMGS=\"" + number + "\"\r");
  delay(1000);
  if (state4 == 0) {
    const char Akib[] = "No: 000004 Akib has joined school at ";
    sim.print(Akib);
  }
  else if (state4 == 1) {
    const char Akib[] = "No: 000004 Akib has gone form school at";
    sim.print(Akib);
  }
  sim.println(rtc.getTimeStr());
  delay(100);
  sim.println((char)26);
  smsSend();
}
void SendNoman()
{
  lcd.setCursor(0, 0);
  lcd.print("SMS Sending");
  sim.println("AT+CMGF=1");
  delay(1000);
  sim.println("AT+CMGS=\"" + number + "\"\r");
  delay(1000);
  if (state5 == 0) {
    const char Noman[] = "No: 000005 Noman has joined school at ";
    sim.print(Noman);
  }
  else if (state5 == 1) {
    const char Noman[] = "No: 000005 Noman has gone form school at ";
    sim.print(Noman);
  }
  sim.println(rtc.getTimeStr());
  delay(100);
  sim.println((char)26);
  smsSend();
}

If Arduino finds any unregistered UID, then LCD shows “Unknown Access Denied” with a buzzer beep. 

else   {
    digitalWrite(buzzerPin, HIGH);
    lcd.clear();
    lcd.setCursor(0, 0);
    lcd.print("ID : ");
    lcd.print("Unknown");
    lcd.setCursor(0, 1);
    lcd.print("Access denied");
    Serial.println(" Access denied");
    delay(1500);
    digitalWrite(buzzerPin, LOW);
    lcd.clear();
  }
