RFID in wearables is used for authentication and warranty service.

All famous brands struggle with knock-offs of their products. Some are easy to recognize, but some are very sophisticated and only an expert can identify the fake. Counterfeit products are big cause of revenue loss for companies that have invested financial resources and time to develop unique products. In some cases, the consumers are duped into believing the products are genuine and are overcharged for an inferior quality with an illegally used logo.

RFID4U has developed a solution for a premium wearable technology manufacturer that provides a full identification of product that cannot be copied and that helps instantly prove whether the product is genuine or counterfeit.

Software

Our Authentication Solution is based on TAGMATIKS, our cutting-edge enterprise, cloud-ready sensory adaptive network software platform, that enables rapid deployment and integration of scalable, real-time visibility solutions. The system provides provides unique ID generation and writing tools including encryption, as well as tracking and authentication tools, that are available for smartphones and tablets for making time-critical decisions on the spot.

Hardware

RFID tags (previously NFC and now UHF RFID) in small sizes are embedded in the wearable electronic items themselves. RFID tags are encoded with a unique ID based on the manufacturer’s requirements, which is encrypted and cannot be rewritten. This ID is then matched with a product database, where variations or duplicates would trigger an alarm. Other information can be written to the tag, such as lot number, expiry date, etc. that provides data for safety purposes and recalls.

Benefits

  • Unique identification of product for authentication purposes ensures that the product has been manufactured by the brand manufacturer and therefore the technology is safe and performance guaranteed. This prevents customer dissatisfaction and increases safety.
  • Information about product, such as manufacturing date, lot number and other data, helps to sort product for inventory management (FIFO), recalls, picking, etc.
  • Supply chain information from manufacturing to store to ensure that product is authentic and has not been tampered with throughout the supply chain or non-genuine products have infiltrated the shipments.
  • Enabled lot identification creates recalls that save cost as only selected products or lots are recalled.
  • Warranty tracking and service enable servicing only authentic products that are in warranty, which saves time and cost (counterfeited products break more often and products out of warranty are usually not eligible for free service or exchange).
  • More efficient inventory management based on automated receiving, sorting, picking and shipping.
