The main goal of this paper is to design and implement a bank locker security system based on RFID and GSM technology which can be organized in bank, secured offices and homes. In this system only authentic person can be recovered money from bank locker. We have implemented a bank locker security system based on RFID and GSM technology containing door locking system using RFID and GSM which can activate, authenticate, and validate the user and unlock the door in real time for bank locker secure access. The main advantage of using passive RFID and GSM is more secure than other systems. This system consists of microcontroller, RFID reader, GSM modem, keyboard, and LCD, in this system The RFID reader reads the id number from passive tag and send to the microcontroller, if the id number is valid then microcontroller send the SMS request to the authenticated person mobile number, for the original password to open the bank locker, if the person send the password to the microcontroller, which will verify the passwords entered by the key board and received from authenticated mobile phone. if these two passwords are matched the locker will be opened otherwise it will be remain in locked position, This system is more secure than other systems because two passwords required for verification. This system also creates a log containing check-in and check-out of each user along with basic information of user.
