My question is related to the post below, but I felt it is better I start a new post for future reference.
Instead of a tactile switch, I would be using an HID reader with a controller called V1000 and a V100 (too much detail here), but basically when they swipe their fob on the HID reader it triggers a relay that is basically shorting the contacts. Those contacts would wire into a GPIO on the pi.
My question is, would be the same setup? do I have to use the same resistors, capacitors, etc?
I think the question is probably yes, but I want to make sure.
