Adafruit Fingerprint Sensor to MS Access using Arduino


We are currently working on a project where an employee will scan his finger and the time he scanned his finger is saved in MS access database. The fingerprint is connected to the arduino. The problem is how to save the ID in MS Access. Is it even possible with the use of arduino ?

You would need a program running on the PC where the Access database resides. The arduino could communicate with it over serial or ethernet/wifi to tell the PC what it read from the fingerprint reader and then that program (that you’ll need to write) can push the information to the database.

The arduino doesn’t seem to add much value here, except perhaps to allow the PC to be physically separate from the point where the fingerprint reader is.
