Arduino HID Reader

This is a small write up to show you how to connect a HID Reader to your computer using an Arduino.  In this video a MaxiProx 5375 HID Reader(to right of laptop) is reading cards from over a foot away while only being supplied 12v by a USB 5v to 12v step-up converter and an Arduino nano is interpreting the weigand data and feeding it over a usb serial connection to the laptop.  This has also been tested to be working with the less expensive ProxPro 5355(12V/24V) and ProxPro II 5455(5V/12V) reader and more than likely it will work for almost any WEIGAND interface HID reader.
