Software Overview
On boot Raspbian logs in as unpriviliged user
.bashrc puts user into terminal application
Special characters are disabled
Bash script waits for input from reader
RFID Reader "types" serial over USB
Script uses key based SSH session to pass credentials to server
Server responds with status & error codes
Logs request
Raspbian takes appropriate action
Opens Relay
Plays Sound (Optional)
Plays Video (Optional)
Software Detail (Reader)
Install Vanilla Raspbian
Install wiringPi (Controls GPIO)
Add User rfid
Create SSH Key
Copy SSH Key to Server
Change tty fonts
Set rfid to automatically login
Add rfid.sh to .bashrc

Software Detail Server
Add user RFID
Add rfidserver.sh
Add passwd, group
