RFID School Attendance Price in India
RFID id cards are frequently used in schools for marking attendance. I have explained in previous blog why it fails when it comes to people tracking. There are vendors who misinform the schools and parents about its benefits and exploit them.
In past few months I have been personally traveling across India and found that vendors are charging schools anywhere between Rs. 300 to Rs. 1500 per year for the solution which fails 30% of the time. Why do they pay for such a faulty solution?
Schools principals were often found complaining about the accuracy and at some instances they even said that we have stopped paying vendors for the solution because its not working. Schools are not to be blamed because the decisions are taken depending upon what information they have at their disposal and vendors provide false promises. The following is the table of typical RFID products.
|Feature / Price
||300 – 500||500 – 800||800 – 1200||1200 – 1600||1600 – 2400|
|Tap & Go Reader||Yes||Yes||Yes||Yes||Yes|
|Child in Bus Tracking||No||No||No||Yes||Yes|
|SMS on arrival||No||No||Yes||Yes||Yes|
|SOS/Panic in Bus||No||No||No||Yes||Yes|
|SOS/Panic in ID Card||No||No||No||No||No|

At Indolytics, child safety is at center. If you are not concerned about the safety of the child, please do not read further.
The most advanced solution for child safety is SchoolCop. The children are tracked, monitored and alerts are provided to the school control room. All ID Cards are equipped with Panic/SoS buttons. The movement kid presses that button, control room gets alert on the location of the child along with the photograph.
Another prominent feature is visitor/staff tracking. At times, the threat is from the adults whose mindset cant be predicted. In that case SoS button shall come to help as well as if a visitor is found in the children section instead of the admin area, the alert goes to the central room. The associated CCTV footage is played on the control room and action can be taken if there is any anomaly.
Schoolcop provides end-to-end integration and takes security as a wholistic approach. School Children are made security from the movement they enter the school bus or enter the school premises till the time they leave.
SchoolCop is the premium product as it requires 150+ readers across the school instead of just 5-10 readers in a typical RFID solution. The price of the SchoolCop is mentioned on this page. Contact us for any further information.
