Radio Frequency Identification now belongs to the masses, and it lets you control all sort of things. Like access

to your front door or valuables in an RFID enables safe. You can corral your staff within an RFID-monitored

perimeter or build a shelf that tells you when you’re out of hot sauce. This book shows you how with

step-by-step instructions, illustrations, photos and a list of tools and technology you need for every project.

It even supplies the lowdown on read/write tags and - for the truly extreme - implantable chips.

Radio frequency identification tags may be the wave of the future, but right

now they can be a big investment. Growing businesses that deal with Wal-

Mart or the Department of Defense are already familiar with the pressure

to be RFID-compliant. A complete RFID system that includes readers, a printer, tags, software, system

inte¬gration and support can cost thousands of dollars.


Businesses that need RFID right away can avoid hefty upfront equipment costs with a different kind of

solution. Several companies offer varying types of slap-and-ship systems. RFID Ltd. (www.rfid-ltd.com),

for example, offers a slight variation on the concept, with a tag-only solution that costs $1 to $2 per tag,

depending on volume. RFID Ltd. encodes and prints the tags and delivers them to the company, which

then attaches them to their products, pallets or shipping containers as needed. The tags meet all compliance


This tag-only approach is one way for businesses to quickly meet RFID man dates. It can be an effective

stopgap measure until RFID tags and equipment become more affordable.
