Most pets have an RFID chip in them so when they are lost it can be scanned and the owners information can be retrieved.  I would like to harness the power of this RFID technology to allow my pet, Chewie, to control my house and update her Twitter.

I’ve learned that pet RFID transmits at 125 kHz.  I had an RFID reader lying around from Adafruit, that I doubted and confirmed could not read Chewie’s RFID chip.  I’ve order a 125 kHz Arduino compatible reader that should arrive on Friday.  Will update blog in a few days with the results of the new reader.

Github project here.  Until next time.
