In any typical day, the main gate would open about a hundred to thousand times in a day - for cabs, resident vehicles, water tanks and visitor vehicles to move in and out. Hence, for a community of about 500 flats, vehicle management does become a serious concern. Many gated communities have installed Radio frequency Identification based boombarriers, in an attempt to manage the vehicle movement in their society. However, there are certain aspects of this solution that every community must know before installing an ID based boom barrier. ID is a small chip (about 2,000 bytes of data) and an antenna that is placed together on an electronic device(in this case, boombarrier). ID is used to establish a unique identity for an object that is scanned to obtain the information. In gated communities, these devices are majorly used with boom barriers to manage vehicle movements and differentiate between resident and visitor vehicles.


The basic working of an ID based boom barrier In Hyderabad All the resident vehicles have to first register with the management committee and get a ID tag placed on their vehicle. An ID reader tag is installed on the boom barrier, which is placed at the entrance of the community. When a car is about to enter the community, the ID tag on the vehicle is read by the reader tag on the boom barrier and the boom barrier in Hyderabad opens, letting the vehicle in. In case of a vehicle that is not registered with the community, the boom barrier will not open. Before installing a ID based boom barrier, here are certain aspects of the device an organisation must know: 1. Costs related with the use of an ID based boom barrier. A typical ID boom barrier device would cost 60,000–95,000/ per piece. For apartments with large main gates, an approx of two ID boom barriers are installed. Hence in a typical apartment there are two gates and hence, a minimum of four boom barriers would be needed. The cost for four devices would approximately range from: Rs 3- 4 lakhs. Apart from the initial costs of the device, there is an additional cost of an ID tag. An average ID tag costs between Rs 150–300 per tag. For an apartment with about 500 flats the cost of all the tags would be around, Rs 75,000–1,50,000\(considering every flat has only one car). The total cost for a community of about 500 flats with RFID based boom barriers on two main gates, could range from Rs 4–5 lakhs. The annual maintenance cost will be seperate. 2. Inventory management of the ID tags The inventory management of all the ID tags on the vehicles is a recurring cost. When ever there is a new resident in the community, new tags have to be made and issued, also when people leave the society, their tags have to be disabled. 3. A boom barrier’s motor fails faster than expected.


The average length of a boom barrier’s arm is 4–6 meters. However some companies increase the length of the boom barrier by attaching a longer piece of metal. This puts the motor of the boom barrier under more pressure, leading to the motor failing faster than its expected durability.

4. Deploying a boom barrier requires a security guard to manage the equipment To manage the vehicles which do not have ID tags ( cabs, water trucks, visitor vehicles, etc) the community would need a security guard to lift the boom barrier, using a push button. Hence hiring a security guard would be an additional cost (avg salary of a guard would be about, Rs 10,000- 15000/per month). 5. The breaking of an ID based boom barrier is a huge possibility. The purpose of deploying an ID based boom barrier is to allow resident vehicles into the society, without the need of a security guard. However apart from resident vehicles who enter the society, there are cabs, visitor vehicles, water trucks, etc too which get in and out of the society on a daily basis. The large number of unauthorized vehicles waiting at the gate to get an entry, could lead to an accident. 6. ID devices have scanning issues


The readers of ID devices are capable of scanning through nearly all nonmetallic materials, however there is an issue with metal and water. This video by the ID Lab Director, Justin Patton from the Auburn University explains the scanning issues of a ID device.

7. ID systems are easy to disrupted ID systems use an electromagnetic spectrum like Wi-Fi networks or cell phones to function. Hence the device can be disrupted using the energy at the right frequency. Some systems use Active ID tags, those that use batteries to increase the range of the device. The moment the battery wears out, the device gets disabled again. Visit: https://www.brihaspathi.com/boom-barriers.html OR Contact : 9581234499
