Python written library for using ZhianTec fingerprint sensors.

Project description

Python library for ZFM fingerprint sensors

The PyFingerprint library allows to use ZhianTec ZFM-20, ZFM-60, ZFM-70 and ZFM-100 fingerprint sensors on the Raspberry Pi or other Linux machines. Some other models like R302, R303, R305, R306, R307, R551 and FPM10A also work.

Note: The library is inspired by the C++ library from Adafruit Industries: https://github.com/adafruit/Adafruit-Fingerprint-Sensor-Library

How to use the library
