Personal Safes are revolutionary locking storage cases that open with just the touch of your finger. These products are designed as secure storage for medications, jewelry, weapons, documents, and other valuable or potentially harmful items.
These utilize fingerprint recognition technology to allow access to only those whose fingerprints you choose. It contains all the necessary electronics to allow you to store, delete, and verify fingerprints with just the touch of a button.
Stored fingerprints are retained even in the event of complete power failure or battery drain. These eliminates the need for keeping track of keys or remembering a combination password, or PIN.
It can only be opened when an authorized user is present, since there are no keys or combinations to be copied or stolen, or locks that can be picked.
In this project the fingerprint module from Miaxis Biometrics is used. It can store up to 750 finger prints on its own memory. It can be controlled through its serial port.
The microcontroller AT89S52 interact with the module. You can Add a fingerprint, Delete a fingerprint and Identify the fingerprint.
To add a fingerprint, just show the finger on the module and press the ADD key. Now the microcontroller will send the ADD command to the module and the module will add it into the memory.
To delete the finger follow the same as above.
To identify the finger, press the Identify button and if the finger matches then the Relay is complemented. Also the fingerprint ID is displayed over the LCD display.
