Re: Wifi ad-hoc setup raspbian

Same issue... Trying to configure Mesh network. Found in another thread: wpa_supplicant is running which exclusively ties up the radio modem for some reason. stop/kill wpa_supplicant, and then it let me change the mode without any issue.

Re: RPi.GPIO Wiegand capture speed?

I ended up prototyping my own... I used a proto board with the ribbon cable to connect to the Pi. I'm considering redesigning it around an Adafruit Pi Plate board ( http://www.adafruit.com/products/801 ) just to tighten up the foot print. The actual components to do the door strike were pretty minim...

Re: RPi.GPIO Wiegand capture speed?

I finally got all my components together to actually start working with my Wiegand reader on the Pi. I found the code from http://pidoorman.com as a starting point, but was disappointed with its reliability. So, I rewrote it. It's written to be used as a very, very lightweight, but hopefully robust ...

Re: RPi.GPIO Wiegand capture speed?

Pi-Wiegand & Latch.png I finally got my tags, strike and keypad/reader in. I've been poking around with it on an Arduino, but now I'm ready to start digging in with the Pi. Kghunt, would you mind posting the schematic view of yours? My Strike is 300ma 12VDC, and so I'm considering using a 12VDC sup...

Re: RPi.GPIO Wiegand capture speed?

This is awesome! I had just ordered a Wiegand RFID/Keypad and door strike to do the same thing, and was debating a Pi for the smarts. Glad to know I wasn't about to reinvent the wheel. Would someone (Joan? kghunt?) mind posting a schematic of their interface? I'm concerned about the 3.3v/5v differen...

5v +2A DC-DC Buck-Boost Power Supplies

This shouldn't seem to be that difficult, but I've spent the better part of 2 days searching the web, and haven't been able to fine what I need, so I thought I'd post here and see if someone has any ideas. I'm looking for a Buck-Boost converter that can supply 5v even, from inputs between 1.8v an 12...
