Hi, I'm not handy at all and need some help on what parts to order from here.

I am looking to pass an object with a RFID tag on the bottom over a RFID sensor/reader. When the object is over the sensor/reader I would like a 5 volt led light strip to go on ( light } and stay lit until the object is moved away from the sensor/reader. I would like it all to work on a house outlet for energy 110. If I can have that put together here and purchased that would even be better.

Thank you

Again, you're not going to find anything pre made here, just the parts to do it yourself.

Might be easier to use a reed switch as your sensor and a magnet on the device you want to activate the leds.

Sparkfun has Reed switches if you do a search. A Reed switch might not be able to handle the current yor leds need, if that's the case have the Reed switch turn on a relay and the relay can turn on the leds.
