GearEye Tracker works with passive RFID Tags. Passive tags are smaller and lighter than active tags but have a shorter communication range and require a high-powered reader like the GearEye dongle.
RFID tag is a small device with a memory chip and antenna. Their tiny form and low cost make them irreplaceable in many cases where bulky Bluetooth tags cannot help. GearTags are battery-free Tracking Tags , they may last for years
Most of the countries share the same standards for radio-frequency, which makes it easy for you to travel with GearEye RFID Tracker anywhere, feel safe and secure, and keep track of all your belongings
Water, metal or thick walls make it difficult for any radio devices to penetrate through them, including various Bluetooth trackers or Wi-Fi or cellular. GearEye provides special on-metal tags which can be scanned with GearEye RFID Scanner even on metal surfaces, but within shorter reading distance than regular tags have
RFID tag has a microchip and antenna. GearEye's dongle, which is a compact RFID reader, sends electromagnetic waves to all the tags around. Then all the IDs received back are passed to the GearEye Mobile app and associated with different objects
The range provided by passive RFID Tags that GearEye uses may reach 2-3 meters which are totally enough to scan your bag, find your wallet around you, or identify your items in a drawer
While Barcode requires line of site to identify the object, with RFID Tracker one can just scan the tagged object remotely from a few meters away. RFID stickers come in same sizes as barcode stickers and can also be attached to any kind of items, like documents, tools, books, wallets, sunglasses, photo-equipment, etc.
GearEye RFID Tracking Device and Tags complies with all RFID standards, and uses EPC Gen 2 communication protocol, and tunes the Dongle’s frequency band and other hardware properties according to specific country's regulations
GearEye Tracking Tags cannot interfere with other IoT devices like BLE trackers since they "speak" their own language only. The signals of passive RFID tags are too weak for that.
