Using Zibawa with RFID or BarCodes

RFID Hooks

You can use Zibawa to implement your RFID , Bar Coding or QR code system.

You can use the reserved key in your message “hook” (we call them hooks because tags have another meaning in Zibawa)to add extra data to your message via Zibawa.

For example a message containing {“hooks”:[“<my rfid tag>”]} will look up the all the data related to the rfid tag from the database.

You can relate each rfid tag data to products, batches or people the Zibawa database in the section “hooks”.

This means that when your RFID reader sends a message to:

topicmyAccount/myRFIDreader53/1/1
message{“hooks”:[“<my rfid tag>”]}

Zibawa will extract and store information stored about the device and channel (myRFIDreader 53, channel 1) and also about your tag.

Elapsed Time since Tag on This Device

Time elapsed since data was last received for Tag <tagName> on the same channel.

Elapsed Time since Tag on Any Device

Time elapsed since data was last received for Tag <tagName> on any Zibawa channel

Applications
