Abstract: Conventional methods of using Barcodes that requires line of sight, pricing discrepancies, scanning problems, label damage, financial and equipment cost causes inaccuracy in entering the information and barcode scanners eventually breakdown causing scanning problems. Therefore, Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) technology is proposed that uses radio waves to transfer from an electronic tag called RFID tag, attached to an object, through a reader for the purpose of identifying and tracking the object. RFID technology which is a matured technology that has been widely deployed by various organization as a part of their automation system. In this study, an RFID based system has built in order to produce a compact and reliable smart security system using RFID and face verification is presented here. The RFID system identifies the student using the RFID card and further identity verification of the student is carried out using face recognition technique. RFID uniquely identifies the student based on the card number, then Viola- Jones algorithm is used to verify face of the students using face image of the student. The performance of the system is carried out with RFID code and face recognition.
