RFID – Outstanding Security Applications

By Ian MacOlive

RFID stands for radio frequency identification. RFID applications can be used for a plethora of various settings. However, it is most commonly used in the security industry. Examples of the security applications of RFID would be Guard Tracking and monitoring.

What is RDIF?

Whenever you are using RDIF tagging it will usually incorporate the destination source that the system is using to track. Moreover, this will allow the RDIF to identify the target source to. An example or two of destination sources would be products or even people. Sometimes, the tag will allow the Guard tracking system to follow the destination of the signal even if it is many meters away.

A radio signal is used for the transmission of information between the tag and the main system. In many cases, the RFID tags have two parts to the system. One part of the tag consists of the integrated circuit and the other is the antenna. The integrated circuit primarily works to store and process information.

Whenever a signal is received it will consist of a modulating or demodulating frequency. Furthermore, the circuit will also have other specialized kinds of functions. The antenna will is primarily used for receiving and sending out signals.

Different type of RFID Tags

For the most part, three types of RFID tags exist. The first RFID tags to be discussed is on that an active tag and uses a battery. The signals that come from this type of RFID is one that works autonomously. With a passive type of RFID tag no battery will be used. Although, the tag will need some sort of external source so that it can transmit the signal.

Opposite of that, the battery assisted passive tags (a.k.a. BAP) are going to need an external source to get the woke up. However, they compensate with a higher amount of range since it has stronger forward link capabilities.

How Guard Tracking helps

Any place regardless of its nature that values security will surely see how important Guard Tracking really is. RFID tagging also helps in settings like health-care and transportation. More examples of areas that would find RFID and Guard Tracking highly beneficial would be military installations,airports, gated communities, and banks. RFID technology can help a company facilitate its own management.

Some great advantages that come with RFID technology is increased security as well as productivity. This is possible since RFID technology can give a company more of an insight on what is going on in their company. They can obtain a better understand on the personnel that is working for them along with the assets of the company.

Using RFID for Guard Tracking can be both useful and essential with many types of industries. The size of the company itself whether it is big or small is not an issue. However, there are many RFID features that you can implement to give certain areas of the company more security by monitoring them. One example of this would be monitoring the job of security personnel. There is an unlimited amount of uses for RFID tracking and technology and will only have limitations according to the equipment used.
