Maybe a bit late to the thread but we have used Salto for the past 6 years. Cant complain ticks all the boxes and allows us to use the same card for our cashless catering and paper cut.

Same here. One card does it all-door access, cashless catering and pcounter. Brilliant system!

Many thanks. I got a different USB card reader off eBay in the end - this one does act as a USB keyboard, so you can just plug it in to pretty much any machine and run a simple console application to read the ID string it "types" when it reads a card. Interestingly, the card reader works with both my (newer model (DESFire), I assume) Oyster card and my contactless debit card, reading a ID string off either. The problem is that the card reader draws too much power to be provided directly by the Raspberry Pi, so I'll have to rig up some kind of powered USB hub if I want to use the Raspberry Pi for an access control system.
