    Hi I am new here.

    I want to create a system in my flat where I can track household items. I have looked into RFID readers and tags, but so they tell you a tag is in a certain direction at a certain distance ?

    The other option is to use buzzers, where every object has it's own buzzer.

    I have heard ZigBee is also good, but it means you need a zigbee module for each object you want to track.

    Any ideas ?

    Thanks

    hehe..i thought of soemthing like that..kinda a clapper spin off, where you clap and a device attached to an object (like a remote) will will start beeping..

    then i thought of the implications of clapping and the whole room going off...which in the end really wouldnt be any help....

    then i just tied a heavy string to my remote..haven't lost it yet..(about a foot and a half long)
