Can RFID technology read cages in adjacent rooms?

A major concern that we hear about RFID being used for cage census is the possibility of capturing or reading cages from an adjacent room. While RFID does have the ability to read at long distances, this concern is only valid if you must track cages by room. Even then, it is not a show stopper.

A brief introduction to the “cloud”

Personally, when I think about cloud computing, I think about online banking. There is no longer a need to physically hold your money in a safe, but rather it is digitally stored over the internet and highly secured servers. If you trust a bank to manage and secure your money, you should feel the same way about the cloud providers managing and securing your data.
