iAutomate is selling their RFID Starter kit, a $480 package that includes a long range RFID reader, their RFID software plugin (for your existing home-automation setup) and the required cables. Attaching a $30-$60 RFID tag to your household assets will let you track their movements, control security features based on personal presence, receive notification when people arrive or leave the house and even "get reminders to take out the trash if the garbage can is still detected at the house on garbage night." The system really showcases what the future with RFID will enable but at a cost that might prove daunting for those of us who haven't already splurged on a home automation system.
