This is really an RFID Door Lock code. I just used it to power my PC on.
/*
 * ----------------------------------------------------------------------------
 * This sketch uses the MFRC522 library ; see https://github.com/miguelbalboa/rfid
 * for further details and other examples.
 * 
 * NOTE: The library file MFRC522.h has a lot of useful info. Please read it.
 * 
 * This sketch show a simple locking mechanism using the RC522 RFID module.
