the System Works
The ActiveTag™ System uses small, battery powered tags that, when
automatically activated at control points throughout a facility, broadcast
non-line-of-sight to palm size receivers networked on the existing corporate
LAN/WAN, VPN or Internet over IP. Unlike other wireless identification
and location systems, ActiveTag's unique dual-frequency operation and
advanced capabilities allow tags to be activated and tracked in a variety
of useful ways to support multiple business initiatives.
awakened by low cost activators transmit not only their unique identification
code, but location and status information as well. Tag signals are picked
up by network receivers up to 100 feet away, thus allowing a single
receiver to collect tag data from a number of activation points. This
flexible control point architecture allows users to automatically activate
tags at specific locations within the facility to support "proximity" applications, such as access control and perimeter control. These read
points can also be grouped into control zones to locate an asset or
person within a specific zone, as well as monitor movement between zones.
ActiveTag™ receiver network also collects information from tags activated
by other means, such as removal of an asset tag with tamper detection
or a personnel tag with a built in distress call or panic button. These
tags intermittently transmit alarm signals on a continuous basis, allowing
security personnel to locate and monitor the incident as the tag moves
through the coverage area. Omni-directional network transceivers, capable
of two-way tag communication, support wide area polling and tag activation,
enabling both static and dynamic tracking of tagged asset and inventory,
as well as employee notification and location determination.
identification and location information is instantly forwarded over
the network to a host computer running AXCESS' ActiveTrac™ software
to provide real-time management solutions via powerful reporting, display,
and decision and control functions. Alert signals can also be tied into
existing alarm, access control and surveillance systems.
ActiveTag system, combined with AXCESS' ActiveTrac software, leverages
the corporate LAN to provide today's e-managers with valuable tools
for improving productivity, physical security, life safety, inventory
visibility and ERP-based order fulfillment. Linked assets and people
can be tracked and located within close proximity, thus providing an
automatic, non-invasive asset protection solution while enabling freedom
