Read Point

Read points are powerful RFID sensor that can be mounted almost anywhere to track RFID tags passing through the sensors range. The most common configurations include doorway-mounted portals that track the movement of tags in and out of the room, and ceiling or wall-mounted portals that track the sightings of tags in a particular location.

Name Description Data Type Min Max Default
AntennaTxPower The dB transmit power of all of the antennas. Int 15 23 23
AntennaRxSensitivity The dB receive sensitivity of all of the antennas. Int -80 -30 -70
AutoUpdate Firmware auto update enable. Bool 0 1 0
CaptureTime Time in seconds before a tag that enters the field is reported. Int 1 120 5
CommandPollInterval The number of minutes between polling for device commands in Jetstream. Int 0 600 60
CommsReboot Number of minutes after the system loses communication that it will automatically reboot. Int 10 1440 230
CommsReconnectInterval Time in seconds to wait before attempting to communicate with Jetstream if there were any communication problems. Int 1 300 10
CommsTimeout Time in seconds to wait for a reply from Jetstream after sending an event or command response. Int 1 300 60
HeartbeatEventInterval The number of minutes between sending a HeartbeatEvent. A setting of 0 will disable HeartbeatEvents. Int 0 600 60
InactivityInterval Time in seconds communications will wait before re-establishing a connection if there is no activity. Int 0 3600 300
JetstreamDeviceUrl The URL to which the read point sends Jetstream messages. String - -
JetstreamWebsocketAppEndpoint The Jetstream resource used to connect for WebSocket communications. Using '#' will disable WebSocket communications. String - - /dwsliveconnection.ashx
LogEntryLevel The verbosity of the logs sent by the reader
  • Off

String - - Debug
NumAntennas Number of antennas active for reader. Int 1 4 1
ObjectEventHour The hour to perform the daily system scan as well as other system checks. A setting of -1 will disable ObjectEvents. Int -1 23 0
ReaderLogEntryOnFailure Generate a LogEntryEvent when communications to the internal RFID reader fails. Bool 0 1 0
RemoveEvent Sets whether an aggregate event "remove" is sent when a tag leaves the field of scanning. Bool 0 1 0
SecureSocket Use secure communications over HTTPS for the read point. Bool 0 1 1
VersionsFileUrl Location of file listing current versions of firmware. Used to configure auto firmware update. String - -

The list below are some common, potential LogEntryEvents a read point may send in. However, not all possible LogEntryEvents are listed in this table. The LogEntryLevel in use determines which LogEntryEvents are sent to Jetstream.

Name Description
LowFlashMemory LowFlashMemory occurs when the read point has less than 25% flash memory.
LowMemory LowMemory occurs when the read point has less than 25% memory. This event will be sent every hour until the device reboots. Reboot occurs automatically if memory drops to 10%.
NewFirmwareDownloadError NewFirmwareDownloadError occurs when a request to upgrade firmware fails.
ReadException ReadException occurs when there is an issue performing an RFID scan.
Startup Startup occurs whenever the read point is started up.
