10-20ft Proximity Sensing
« on: March 04, 2011, 01:26:26 AM »

Had not thought of this before, but this sounds like it would work better than RFID tags for proximity sensing:

Put Nike sensors in all your shoes, in the whatever software implementation, assign the various ID's to whomever pair of shoes it is.

for each sensor you get a receiver. Also get the USB adapter, and getting all the receivers to communicate with your HA server is up to you  ;) I'm sure some of you VB experts could have this working in no time  >!
