A few weeks ago we were telling about how to keep your home safe and watched with our 3G+GPRS Mobile Kit to make a wireless security system. We want to give you more suggestions in order to make an IoT Home, so we are showing this week the Smart Cards Kit (NFC/RFID 13.56MHz) + A/V Kit, that allows to create your own movie jukebox.
With this kit, your TV will become a smart media center. The idea is to synchronize your favourite films with a RFID 13.56MHz/NFC card, then connect it with the A/V Kit and switch it to you TV. You will enjoy your films just selecting your synchronized cards.
It is also a great solution for parental control for your kids. â€¦ Children will not be able to choose films for adults because the system allows parents to choose the titles of selected movies and gives them autonomy to program themselves what to watch.
This kit includes the RFID 13,56MHz module for Arduino, Raspberry Pi and Intel Galileo, that enables to recognize objects by proximity identification, query the card and sends instructions to it.
You can find other interesting items in the kit to create your own movie jukebox, as pcDuino AV kit to transform your TV in a media center, a Xbee Shield that allows to use XBee modules, our Bluetooth Pro or RFID, or five RFID 13.56MHz/NFC cards to enable the wireless communication.
You can see in the next video an simple example of the use of a NFC/RFID smart card:
