D-Tech International Announces Smart Security System for School Libraries

D-Tech International has announced the release of its RFIQ security system for the school library market, ranging from kindergarten to 12th grade. According to the company, the solution provides perimeter-based protection and improved alarm-handling capability. The RFIQ system uses the same labels as a radio frequency identification system, D-Tech explains, but with no need for software.

"D-Tech consulted with us to choose the right solution for our school library," said Sherry Rainosek, a Texas librarian at Victoria West High School Librarian, in a prepared statement. "We knew we needed to upgrade our security systems now. We didn't want to limit our choice based on our current budget restraints. We wanted to make sure we were making a sound technology decision that will serve our needs well into the future. The RFIQ system allows us to have a state-of-the art security solution and an upgrade path to RFID without having to replace the systems."

The RFIQ system, combined with D-Tech's new M180 antennas, labels and staff pads, provides a more cost-effective solution than currently available EM systems, the company claims. Ongoing costs are reduced, D-Tech adds, and the system can be upgraded to RFID to take advantage of advanced features. The solution can be upgraded with RFID software and an RFID wand to facilitate such features as fast inventory-taking and item searches.

"We pride ourselves in working with our clients to choose the right set of products that address their operational needs," said Marvin Crisp, D-Tech International's president, in the prepared statement. "RFIQ is an ideal package for the K-12 school library as they face dwindling budgets and limitations on their time. The system provides very high detection rates, no false alarms and antennas that can span more than five feet. It's a technology solution that will expand as our customers' needs evolve."
