Fire Door Monitoring Software System

Fire Door Monitoring Software SystemIt can be tricky for businesses that operate across multiple sites to keep track of fire safety matters, especially when only a single staff member is dedicated to Health and Safety duties. Fire Door Monitor is an innovative solution to allow your nominated fire safety representative to discharge their legal responsibilities more efficiently.

Prevent People Propping Fire Doors Open

If fire doors are left propped open, it can cause a health and safety risk. They should only be used for access and left closed at all other times in order to act as an effective fire and smoke barrier. If doors are propped open then it increases the risk if there is a fire, and it could result in a fail if a fire safety inspection is undertaken by your local fire brigade.

We install magnetic catches with wireless transmitters onto each door, allowing it to be opened only for a maximum specified time before the system sends an alert by SMS and email to the nominated fire officer so they can visit the site. Full reporting tools are available, so it is possible to see which doors have been opened and for how long.

Fire Door Inspection System

We use RFID systems, with transponders being placed at each fire door. Our software manages inspection schedules and informs the responsible party when inspections are due. This means that the inspections cannot be manipulated or faked, the nominated person must have visited those doors, in order to carry out the inspection.  The software system then integrates with those inspection records to provide reporting and monitoring of the schedule of those inspections to ensure they are carried out in conformance with the Fire Safety regulations.

Compliance with Fire Safety Legislation

Not only does our Fire door monitor software tell you when doors are left open, it also monitors and maintains records of inspections carried out under the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 BS 9999 which stipulates that inspections must be carried out on fire doors every six months. This means that even if the nominated fire officer is not on-site, legal duties or any other national standards can be fulfilled.

It places legal responsibility on the responsible person (which defaults to the business owner or managing director if no-one else is specified in company documents) to carry out these inspections and ensure that fire doors are kept closed and are in a serviceable condition: not locked, less than a 3mm gap around the sides, closers work properly etc.

RFID System for Stock Control

Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) is technology that allows a business to quickly and accurately identify individual products and components. It can be used to track them all the way through the supply chain from pre-production to point-of-sale – and beyond. RFID systems use radio waves to communicate between an RFID tag and a reader. The tag consists of a microchip attached to an antenna, and the reader can wirelessly read and write data from and to the tag.

RFID Systems for Inventory Control

RFID System for Stock Control

Because an RFID tag is essentially a tiny microchip (albeit fitted with a small aerial) it can hold a range of data about the item to which is is attached. RFID tags can be encapsulated in plastic and fixed to a product or its packaging or embedded inside a container or delivery vehicle.

An RFID reader transmits and receives radio signals to and from the RFID tag. The information that is collected can be processed using dedicated computer software from a company such as Digitalquill. Readers can be placed at various positions in a factory or warehouse to record the movement of goods.

How does RFID help with Stock Management?

RFID tagging has many stock control benefits over barcodes:

  • RFID tags can be read remotely at a distance of up to several metres
  • A number of tags can be read at once, so an entire pallet-load of products can be checked simultaneously
  • RFID tags have a unique identification code, that cannot be cloned, so individual products can be tracked effectively

RFID systems can be used:

  • To maintain the right stock level of a product or component and enable Just in Time production
  • To improve stock security. Tag-readers positioned at points of risk, such as the exit to the building, can be used to trigger alarms
  • To improve quality control. They are particularly useful if you stock items with a limited shelf life as the date can be stored and associated with the tag.

The costs of RFID systems have fallen over recent years, and subscription models such as Software as a Service (SaaS) make RFID stock control solutions viable for most businesses, however small.

RFID Systems

RFID systems work through tiny tags consisting of a microchip with an antenna in a compact package. The tag can be attached to almost any object and when its antenna picks up the signals from an RFID reader it can returns data such as its unique serial number. RFID tags do not need a line of sight with the reader and they can easily be incorporated into moving objects.

RFID Systems for Schools

RFID Systems

Schools are starting to use RFID systems in libraries, entry gates and meal halls, making it easier to track students inside the school premises and to reduce the need for them to carry cash. The use of bespoke RFID systems in educational establishments can vastly improve the security and management of the school.

RFID technology in the education sector

Libraries: RFID systems have almost completely replaced barcodes in school libraries. The main advantage over barcodes is that RFID systems do not need to scan every book; multiple books can be read with a single scan and RFID tags can’t be as easily defaced and hard-to-read.

School Entry gates and classrooms: By installing RFID systems at school gates, it is easy to track the attendance of students. Schools always know who is present and who has left the premises. Within classrooms, RFID “gates” can be used in place of the time-consuming practice of taking a register

Meal Halls: RFID cards can be used to ensure that children do not need to carry money and allow parents to keep track of their spending.

RFID Systems for Retail

The retail sector was one of the first to adopt RFID technology. You will be familiar with the RFID “security tags” on big-ticket items to prevent theft. RFID has other uses – for example, it can be used to replace the EAN (Electronic Article Number) or barcode on a product. Imagine a shop where you simply fill your trolley with items and the bill is automatically calculated as you pass through the doors and charged to your account.

RFID Systems

Anyone who has experienced the lengthy queues on Black Friday or at Christmas will recognise the benefits of a smoother system for processing payments. It is possible for a customer to be given a trolley or basket at the entrance or a store with a built-in RFID reader and embedded display. By picking up a product with an RFID tag attached to it, the system could display the name, quantity, and price of the item and then add it to the cart. The data can be sent to the checkouts wirelessly so that by the time the customer reaches the counter the goods can be checked, and payment collected far quicker than by scanning a bar code on each product.

Taken one step further, the bill could be automatically calculated and debited – eventually without any need for human intervention. This is not science fiction, Amazon has already put plans in place for a physical store using just such a concept.

RFID Systems

You can find Radio Frequency IDentification systems (RFID systems) being used everywhere. They allow an object to be identified through unique data that is transmitted via radio waves. RFID technology is now being used in the waste management sector to improve recycling rates and maximise efficiency by making use of unique RFID transponders. All that is required is the installation of a robust RFID tag into each bin, and an RFID reader into each collection vehicle.

RFID Systems for Waste Collection

RFID Systems

RFID waste management RFID systems allow for the identification and traceability of waste streams. Unique RFID tags can be attached to waste containers enable waste operators to monitor sorting quality, track how many times a container is put out for collection and even track the weight and nature of its contents.

RFID Systems on Waste Collection Vehicles

RFID is now being used by both public and private sector waste collection operators to monitor their waste pickup. Waste disposal trucks can easily be equipped with RFID readers to scan the unique RFID tags associated with each of the bins that they collect. RFID readers can easily record the exact time and location every single time a waste container is emptied. This unparalleled level of knowledge gives a new, greater ability to monitor and control the entire waste disposal process. By using RFID systems, waste operators can have access to accurate real-time data that can be used for a multitude of purposes: from customer billing to better route and resource planning.

RFID Waste Tracking

The waste industry has increasingly turned to technology to help to manage day to day operations more efficiently and effectively. For over ten years now, RFID systems have been used by waste collectors to improve performance and boost recycling rates. RFID systems allow waste to be identified and traced throughout the entire chain RFID tags can easily be applied to waste containers and trucks can have RFID readers installed to improve sorting, validating and verifying pickups, tracking how many times a container is used and tracking the weight of the contents at each pickup. A waste management system with RFID makes billing for service simple and allows for incentive-based invoicing. In conjunction with GPS, RFID systems give real-time visibility of waste management activities.

RFID Systems for Wheelie Bins?

We find waste containers in many materials and sizes, but all are subjected to harsh environments and rough handling. Because they are stored outdoors, waste containers are exposed to the elements: but RFID tags can withstand such conditions and continue to function effectively for the entire life cycle of the containers.

Safer Hazardous Waste Collection

When it comes to managing hazardous waste disposal RFID systems provide a high degree of visibility and traceability. This can provide operators with an audit trail of every step in the process from the time and place the waste was picked up to the time and place of its disposal, together with every stop in between.

RFID Systems museum

RFID Systems museumYou can find Radio Frequency IDentification systems (RFID systems) everywhere. They allow objects to be identified using data transmitted via radio waves. RFID technology is now being used in museums to create interactive exhibits. Just like any technology in a museum, you must carefully consider the exhibition’s aims and objectives to make RFID systems fit in seamlessly – but by carefully embedding tags and readers in the appropriate places you can create a visitor experience that is second to none.

RFID Systems in Museums

One way to improve visitor interaction in an exhibition space is to use RFID systems. RFID is a simple, reliable and relatively inexpensive way to connect visitors and museum exhibits. Even if you are unfamiliar with the terms, you may have used an RFID card and reader on the London transport system or to access a hotel room. By passing a card over a reader, which may be embedded within an object, a user instantly communicates with computer software, without any further physical input from. For example, in a museum environment, RFID tags and readers could trace an individual visitor’s path through a building to discover which exhibits are most popular. Visitors can be encouraged to use the RFID card by embedding their responses to questions into the content of the exhibition itself.

Why is RFID better than barcodes?

Older input technologies – keyboards, physical buttons, touch-screens or barcode scanners – can collect the same information, but RFID is probably the most elegant solution as it is so seamless in operation and requires so little maintenance.  Another benefit of RFID systems is the relatively low cost.
