Throughout our lives, we encounter many devices that transmit signals over radio waves, such as cell phones and radios. TagThing uses RFID (radio-frequency identification) technology to emit and receive radio signals so you can identify objects in your vicinity using the RFID reader.
Since not all objects can send and return radio signals, attaching an RFID tag will ensure the item can be identified by the reader. RFID tags come in many shapes, sizes, and styles. Depending on what you want to mark, you can choose the appropriate tag.
You can attach it to the inside of a book – the RFID reader will receive the transmission without the user having to open the cover.
It can be sewn into the inside pocket of a dress. The tag can be washed and ironed and can be scanned even when covered.
It can be drilled to the cover of a machine or appliance; the tags are water, UV, shock, and vibration resistant.
It can be glued to the bottom of a chair, and you don’t have to bend down to scan it.
When an RFID tag receives signals from an RFID reader, it returns its own unique identifier. If the tag is affixed to an object and read by the reader, the reader will recognize that specific tag and the object assigned to it.
Scanning can be done from up to several meters away and without physical contact, and hundreds of tags can be scanned within seconds.
Which companies should use TagThing?
There are many types of RFID readers and many ways to scan an object.
Users can hold a mobile reader and scan nearby items by hand.
Objects (e.g. ID passes) can be scanned as they pass under a reader attached to a wall.
A group of objects can be passed through a reader “tunnel” and identified at once.
A vehicle can pass through a gate that scans its cargo.
Contactless, fast, and accurate inventory and administration with significantly fewer labour requirements. Remote scanning avoids unnecessary contact with items.
TagThing’s software helps digitalize the day-to-day operation of your business. It is a complete asset-accounting solution that not only helps organize your inventory but also greatly automates the everyday running of your business. It can be used as a corporate-governance system and is constantly being expanded with new features.
You can easily set up our simplest system without our input! (TagThing installation is not required for handheld scanners).
Attach the tag to the object.
Use the app on your mobile device or tablet and connect to the reader via the audio port.
Log on to a desktop computer for all user functions (except scanning).
The technology offers numerous benefits for the healthcare sector, including a reduction in human errors, improved patient safety, and augmented task accuracy.
There are plenty of reasons to deploy the technology, and the payoffs are often substantial.
As the post-pandemic world undergoes major transformations, deployments of radio frequency identification technologies may become even more necessary.
There is enormous potential to utilize both technologies in tandem for tracking applications.
Tool-tracking solutions based on RFID and the Industrial Internet of Things increase tool traceability and availability, reduce tool search times and bring down asset-carrying costs.
RFID technology is finally taking off in retail—in fact, it's being put to use in a variety of ways, some of which might just surprise you.
Gaining real-time visibility into returnable assets can set you up for financial success and long-term growth.
The Internet is allowing for more hardware and human connectivity. How should industry respond to balance efficiency with privacy?
While healthcare-associated infections (HAIs) were already plaguing hospitals worldwide, the introduction of the COVID-19 virus at these facilities made the situation worse. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) says that, although this is not thought to be the main way in which the virus spreads, a person can become infected by touching a surface that has the virus on it "and then touching their own mouth, nose, or possibly their eyes."
From tracking employees' movements to monitoring proper hand hygiene, RFID technology is awash with possibilities for reducing the risk of future COVID-19 infections.
Never before has a back-to-school season created so much fear, stress and anxiety. Amid the COVID-19 pandemic, educational institutions of all sizes are facing new challenges as they implement cleaning, social distancing and other safety procedures to keep students and faculty members safe.
