What's that ... so you reckon my portable Faraday cage is a bit OTT, then?
Meanwhile, has anyone conducted any tests yet with *RFID? Passive versus
active tags, how good it works through breeze block, red brick etc.
, distances and transmitter-receiver (and repeater antennae) positioning ... and all the rest? I can just imagine the "difficulties" in getting such a system commissioned, and up and running. Not to mention how long it would take until ... er, thieves
realised how to beat the system (dead-spots et al
Frankly, I see great scope here for hospitals to spend mega £££'s on installing systems that turn out (yet again?) to be an incomplete answer to an ill-defined problem! That is, buying the "wrong" system, which may very well be obsolete even before it gets commissioned (now, where I have come across that
sort of thing before).
Has anyone thought about limited, local systems ... perhaps using more readily available (cheaper, adaptable) technology ... like Bluetooth
, for example? Or, put another way, if prototypes were produced, would anybody buy them?
* Should we be using MWID for microwave frequencies?
