This will be implemented using RFID technology. An RFID reader is fixed on one of the side of the door and RFID tag (passive) on the other side of the door. When the door is closed the RFID Tag is in close proximity with the Reader and hence it will forward output as “Door Closed” along with the normal Location data. As & when the Door opens either the Reader or Tag will loose the proximity and at this juncture the system will forward the output as “Door Open”. The onlychallenge here is to figure out a way to mount the RFID Tag so that it is safe and difficult to tamper.
