I think there is an old module for the fingerprint clock-in made by someone in Argentina for one specific fingerprint scanner. Maybe that could be something to look at. Can't dig out the details right now, but I guess it can be found somewhere

I'm working with a couple of nutritional supplement manufacturers that want to be able to monitor environmental conditions like temperature, humidity and dust levels. Separately they also want to have a fingerprint scanner that employees will use to clock in and out for attendance. 

I've taken an Arduino Yun, connected a temperature/humidity sensor to it and have that data feeding real-time into a table in OpenERP via XML-RPC. The next part is to setup the fingerprint scanner to connect to the attendance feature in the HR module.

I'm curious if there's interest for a larger community project to generically connect an Arduino to Odoo/OpenERP. Maybe a configuration screen where we can make the associations between pins on the Arduino and fields in ERP. 

There's an endless amount of scanners, sensors, motors, cameras, etc. Modules could alert in ERP when data from sensors moves outside of specified thresholds.
