Interface with the adafruit fingerprint r305 module from upper computer over serial connection

Project description

adafruit-fingerprint

Documentation Status

This library enables you communicate and with the r305 Fingerprint Identification Module via serial connection with upper computer.

The library enables you to to communicate with the r305 fingerprint module from upper computer (your laptop, a raspberry pi etc), rather than the arduino which it was built for by default. The module communicates via TTL, therefore, to communicate you need a USB - TTL converter connected to the module.

It provides a class that exposes methods you can call to perform serial read/write actions with the module, these methods are implemented according to the datasheet specification, which you can download from the repo here.

Installation

pip install adafruit-fingerprint

Meta

This package is heavily inspired by the finger_sphinx project, found during our search for a way to get the fingerprint template to upper computer, rather than have it stored in flash library. A very big kudos and acknowledgement to the owners.
