How can use my Wireless Location Appliance to work with RF ID's for Asset Tagging.

It seems Smartcard used for ID cards have a small RF ID, can I use this for Asset Tagging?

Thanks in Advance

There are two kinds of RFID tags: Active tags, which have a battery or other internal power source, and passive tags, which have no power source and work by reflecting the energy from an RFID scanner (basically). At the energy levels and distances used for WiFi location detection, passive tags will not return a detectable signal.

Take a look at for more info on WiFi RFID tagging.

Thanks gamcall, that was really informative.

I am using a dual-radio 1252 Access Point through out my enterprise. What range should the Smartcard Tag be so that it can be detectable by the AP.
