I would like to use many different locks to secure items. Could I use a single transceiver to unlock each individual lock?
If you are using the term "transceiver" to refer to an RFID reader, the answer is probably "no." Generally, RFID-based locking systems have a reader connected to the lock, which would be opened when the reader interrogated a tag programmed to open the lock. You could have one RFID tag or transponder open multiple locks, but I am unaware of a locking system for which you could send commands from one reader to several locks at the same time and have them all open simultaneously.
