Our project deals with a secure RFID gate system that uses IoT technology for better protection .IoT enables the use of internet in connecting different devices that are helpful in our day to day life.. By Implementing this technology in a gateway it enhances the system by providing more security . This type of a gate can be used in large organizations like Industries, Military or Defense area ,Apartments, etc. The system consists of RFID reader and tag, Raspberry pi (Processor & server),Motor (230V AC) , DPDT Relay, IR Sensor and a slide gate. The system also uses Python as it is fast and more efficient.A DPDT Relay is used so that large gates that need high voltage can be operated.When an unauthorised vehicle approaches the gate he/she needs to inform the person they want to meet so that the person inside can login to the website and click the OPEN button to open the gate.An IR sensor is also placed near the gate so that it prevents accident due to collision of the gate.
