My First Python Library

https://github.com/pawl/Chinese-RFID-Access-Control-Library

I purchased a chinese access controller and reverse engineered some functionality of the windows software that came with it. I made a python library that does some of the same functions as the desktop software: https://github.com/pawl/Chinese-RFID-Access-Control-Library/

I use this library to tie our access controller into with our billing system (called WHMCS) and another web application (which is meant to be a self-documenting way to activate/deactivate RFID badges): https://github.com/pawl/MakerManager

Now, whenever someone stops paying for 5+ days, their RFID badge is deactivated because a "hook" in WHMCS sends a request to a webservice that uses the access control library.
