Development of a Smart Staff Attendance Management System | Check it out !

in STEMGeeks5 months ago (edited)


Hi, I'm @techlhab and am delighted in sharing how to develop a smart staff attendance management system. The device helps in accurately taking staff attendance of an organization, registering the name, date, and time of the staff on swiping his or her smart RFID (Radio Frequency Identity) card to the RFID card reader.

Taking of reliable and accurate attendance for effective monitoring of staff time in and out of an organization has always been an issue. The development of this project or device tends to address and solve the problem stated above.

Every user or staff of the organization will be assigned and registered to an RFID card uniquely just like the normal ATM debit card.

The device uses an ESP8266 microcontroller which serves as the brain of the device, enabling the device to be able to connect to the internet for real-time data logging and retriever from a real-time database once the user or staff swipes his or her card on the reader intending to register his or her attendance.

The LCD (Liquid Crystal Display) screen help in passing necessary instructions or information to the user or staff for easy interactions and usability.

For every swipe, the user or staff makes, the buzzer makes beep sounds confirming the presence of a valid card and makes two (2) deep sounds when the user swipes an invalid card that is not registered to the database.


The hardware components used towards the development of this project or device includes:

  • ESP8266
  • RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) Card
  • RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) Card Reader
  • LCD (Liquid Crystal Display) 16x2
  • Control Switch
  • Resistor
  • Indicating LED (Light Emitting Diode)
  • Connecting Wires
  • Buzzer


The software components of the development of this device include:

  • Embedded C / C++
  • Arduino IDE (Integrated Development Environment)
  • Firebase Realtime Database
