Key to the establishment of Control Points inside a building is AXCESS' small "Switch Plate" activator-antenna unit. The activator-antenna activates the tag as it passes, automatically and accurately transmitting only at that time so the asset's exact position is tracked as it moves throughout a facility. The palm-sized unit fits in with the aesthetic design of a building and avoids the objectionable portal structure typical of passive RFID tag systems. The areas between Control Points can be sized as needed by the customer's unique requirements for asset visibility and location precision.
AXCESS' patented ActiveTag RFID product uses small, battery powered tags (generically called "dual-active" tags) that when automatically activated, transmit a wireless message over long range to hidden palm size receivers. The receivers are network devices which have the flexibility to be installed using either cable or using the existing Wi-Fi network. Optionally, the tag system can also be used to trigger security video recording and live remote video transmission. The tags are used for a variety of other security applications including automatic personnel access to facilities, automatic vehicle access to parking areas and yards, as well as special purpose sensing. Automatic email alerting and paging is offered for rapid response to security incidents.
