We integrate RFID with FileMaker since 2008. One field where our customers always struggle a bit, however, is using RFID to identify things made of metal. To demystify this topic a bit, I have organized a meeting with Codeware, our supplier and partner for RFID technologies, to discuss specifically how to use RFID on metal.
You may have already seen my hardware integration demo where I combined iPads, iPhones, motors, barcodes, RFID, digital scale, mobile receipt printer, and payment cards. Although everyone loved the automated moving parts built from LEGO, the after-session questions and discussions were actually mostly focused on RFID and NFC.
The popular plug-in for integrating FileMaker solutions with hardware devices, such as relays, environmental sensors, RFID, and more, now brings support for iOS and re-designed examples. Version 3.1 for iOS lets custom FileMaker apps control Phidgets directly from iPhone or iPad.
