RuBee is a wireless identification system, similar to RFID. It uses a low frequency carrier as opposed to radio frequency which gives it several advantages:

  • Cost - RuBee provides more functionality for a lower cost respective to an RFID tag with similar features.
  • Long Life - The RuBee tag runs at low speed because of the low frequencies it uses to transmit information. Batteries can last up to 15 years.
  • Security - Tags are far more secure than their RFID counterparts. The range at which one can intercept messages is about the same as the range of the tag itself. The tag can also implement further security measures such as keys and pads.
