Indigo RFID Starter Kit Product Description and Specifications

This RFID Starter kit includes virtually everything you need to get started with RFID and automation whether it is in your home or business. The kit includes Indigo 5.x, Our RFID Software Plug-In, One RX202-HA Long Range RFID Reader, and The RFID Reader Breakout Cable with Power Supply (Works in EU, AU, and UK too). Just add a variety of long range RFID tags from our selection online for autos, people, and physical assets, and among other things this system becomes the ultimate driveway sensor. Note that an upgrade to Indigo 6 is required for RFID Integration.

Powered by Wavetrend, Customized for iAutomate.com and home automation applications, the HA Edition RX202-HA Long Range RFID Reader is used in conjunction with Indigo Software and our RFID Software Plugin and is specifically designed for detection (or absence) of people, vehicles, and personal assets. The RFID Reader provides near field or long range coverage for real-time detection of people, pets, vehicles or anything else you can identify with one of the various long range RFID tags.

The RFID Reader communicates with either:

  • An Apple Macintosh computer with 1.83 MHz Core Duo Processor or faster, 2GB RAM, OS X v10.6.8 or later and a USB to Serial Adaptor COM Port Running Indigo Software. FTDI Chipset is required in the adaptor.
  • See our RFID Starter Kit 

Additional readers can be daisy chained to permit many readers on one CAT5 wire system. Each reader is range settable via software to adjust for the requirements of the room or application. Range adjustable antennas can be discretely hidden in walls, ceilings, and doorways to identify and track tag activity. The RX202-HA can simultaneously read multiple RFID tags at ranges of up to 300 feet (with optional antennas), and can also register and report the disappearance or unauthorized movement of individual RFID tags. This model is for use ONLY with Indigo. A FREE Indigo plug-in is included or available for download with purchase.

Key Improvements of the RX202-HA Reader:

  • More Sensitive - Up to 30% increased range as compared to the L-RX201-HA
  • New AGC Circuit prevents signal "flooding"
  • Electronically fused inputs and outputs for better protection
  • Can be configured via Micro-USB Port and Powered over USB for setup and testing
