RFID System Solutions for Building Management

By exploring RFID for building management, we can evaluate combining an RFID tag and a RFID reader. The tags contain a small microchip and antennae. Each tag has a unique serial number associated with it, tags can be either passive or active. Depending on a client’s need they may opt for an active tag with a read range of up to several meters. Passive RFID Tags have a limited range in comparison. Whatever the scenario we have a solution that can be adapted for your company.

Secured Parking RFID tags can be mounted to the windshield of vehicles allowing hands free secure access to commercial or residential parking lots. Antennae that work in unison with RFID technology can activate surveillance camera whenever a vehicle enters or exits a secured area. The information recorded in the RFID Reader can be relayed to a host computer, keeping a log of vehicles for commercial facilities. Another advantage of hands free parking access is the ability to increase traffic flow into and out of residential or commercial buildings while keeping the premises safe and secure.

Personnel Tracking A widely accepted use of RFID Badge is keeping track of employees coming to and leaving work. Building management staff can tap an RFID portal when their shifts begin, eliminating payroll miscalculations. In addition, the same RFID Badge provides security clearance to individual employees so that they can unlock certain doors throughout the building. This ensures only authorized personnel can gain entry to private or prohibited zones on the premises. Once a door is accessed, the event is logged so that managers can easily review reports that show each personnel’s activity on any day within any given period of time.
