Lira – Life Information Reporting Assistant (NFC / RFID)

New site/app launch: Lira – Life Information Reporting Assistant (NFC / RFID) The idea of Live Information Reporting Assistant was initially developed as a cost effective solution for the better facilitation of security patrolling in Singapore. The LIRA server is a management system that allows the easy supervision of live reporting conducted by staff on the ground. LIRA involves the use of a mobile application in smart phones and near-field communication technology in order for staff members to write and submit reports while they are on the ground. The use of NFC tags allow our clients to with checkpoint tours for their staff in any compound or facility. These staff are then required to follow the checkpoints while they do their rounds. Staff can also report any incident to the server immediately, when something is out of the ordinary. The LIRA system is an effective way of monitoring live reports for management of security, facilities and logistics. Please refer to the technology tab for more information.         Technology: A near field communication tag is placed on each checkpoint in a checkpoint tour. The LIRA mobile applications provides users with the ability to use near field communication technology in smart phones to conduct their checkpoint tours around a vicinity by simply placing their phones in contact with these NFC tags. Once each checkpoint tour is completed, the information will be automatically sent to the LIRA server. The LIRA application also allows users to submit live incident reports as well as submit photographed evidence of incidents, take with the smart phones. Clients can then log in into the LIRA...

Near field communication (NFC)

Near field communication, or NFC, allows for simplified transactions, data exchange, and wireless connections between two devices in close proximity to each other, usually by no more than a few centimeters. It is expected to become a widely used system for making payments by smartphone in the United States. Many smartphones currently on the market already contain embedded NFC chips that can send encrypted data a short distance (“near field”) to a reader located, for instance, next to a retail cash register. Shoppers who have their credit card information stored in their NFC smartphones can pay for purchases by waving their smartphones near or tapping them on the reader, rather than bothering with the actual credit card. Co-invented by NXP Semiconductors and Sony in 2002, NFC technology is being added to a growing number of mobile handsets to enable mobile payments, as well as many other applications. The Near Field Communication Forum (NFC Forum) formed in 2004 promotes sharing, pairing, and transactions between NFC devices and develops and certifies device compliance with NFC standards. A smartphone or tablet with an NFC chip could make a credit card payment or serve as keycard or ID card. NFC devices can read NFC tags on a museum or retail display to get more information or an audio or video presentation. NFC can share a contact, photo, song, application, or video or pair Bluetooth devices. The 140 NFC Forum members include LG, Nokia, Huawei, HTC, Motorola, NEC, RIM, Samsung, Sony Ericsson, Toshiba, AT&T,Sprint, Rogers, SK, Google, Microsoft, PayPal, Visa, Mastercard, American Express, Intel, TI, Qualcomm, and NXP. Uses Emerging NFC standards allow customers to quickly purchase products and transfer secure information by touching devices. NFC allows companies to reduce staffing, printing, and point of sale costs. Globally, 100 million people use mobile payment outside the U.S., but only...

Difference Between RFID and NFC

RFID vs NFC RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) is a tagging technology that is gaining widespread attention due to the great number of advantages that it offers compared to the current tagging technologies being used today; like barcodes. Near Field Communication, or more commonly known as NFC, is a subset of RFID that limits the range of communication to within 10 centimeters or 4 inches. RFID uses radio frequency waves that are either passive, active, or a combination of both. Active RFID tags have a power source that helps extend their range even further while passive devices rely on the energy that it receives from the interrogating device to send its own information. Among the advantages of RFID is the very small size of the tag that made it possible to be used with small products or to be hidden away neatly. Another excellent advantage is that it doesn’t need a direct line of sight for the information to be read. This is very desirable in baggage tracking application where speed is very essential. RF waves are used to transmit information across very long distances, and RFID is no different. The RF waves can reach very long distances especially when powered. This kind of range is very desirable in certain applications like animal tracking where the animal being tracked might move a couple of kilometers. But this type of range is not desirable in applications like cash cards or passports. Malicious people can receive your information and clone it into another tag and use it for themselves. This is where NFC comes in. Objects that are tagged with NFC are usually passive...
