Unformatted text preview: 26 OCTOBER 2011 1 Abstract The main purpose of an RFID dorm security system is to monitor the people going in and out of the dormitories and identify dormers from non-dormers. Most guards in the dormitories failed to recognize the outsiders from the dormers. This leads to theft and robberies inside the dormitories. This documentation discusses how the said system works. I. INTRODUCTION Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) is a new technology that has been popularly utilized since it began due to its wide variety of applications like inventory, localization, marathons and motor races and security. A typical RFID system consists of a reader and tag that communicates wirelessly by sending out air waves. A popular area of interest for research and development among the different kinds of RFID systems is the UHF Passive RFID. Its implementation is relatively cheaper compared to the active and semi-active systems because the tag does not require an on-board switch for powering it but instead relies on the continuous wave signal from the reader. A cheap and power-saving dorm security system is implemented using the Passive UHF RFID Tags. For the implemented system, each dormer will be given with a tag. The tags electronic product code (EPC) is then stored in a database. A motion sensor is then used to detect people with and without tags. When the sensor detects a person and no tag was detected or his tags EPC didnt appear in the dormer database, he will be identified as a non-dormer and an alarm will sound. Further details of the system are discussed in the succeeding parts. details of the system are discussed in the succeeding parts....
