One option, these may be UHF
860 to 960MHz.

No DT products will work in that Frequency range.
xLED are either HF or LF (13.56MHz 125kHz)
xSIID are HF 13.56 MHz
so all a long way off freq.

Alternatively, the may use magnetic tags ( ie. the clothing tags )

Which ever system it uses, I am not aware of any implantable LED’s for those systems.

Thanks, I wasn’t sure if there was anything like that yet, I’m waiting on when all this craziness settles down so I can get the thermometer one implanted, I’m looking at the vivo but unsure what it can do

This post of @Rosco will be a good one for you to read

The best place to start would be to Have a look around the Vivokey website

As far as I’m aware, all antitheft gates are UHF. But I may be wrong.

Trogan2000, if all you want is get noticed at the checkout line, all you have to do is steal something :slight_smile: Or, alternatively, if you have a piece of clothing with a tag that’s still active, go to the store wearing it.

Interesting story, speaking of which:

A few years back, one area man did exactly that. he went repeatedly to the same store - and with some frequency too - with a piece of underwear that still had an active tag attached to it.

Each time he’d go through checkout, the gate would start beeping, and the rent-a-cop would pull him to the side and frisk him. Then, finding nothing, one of the cashiers would “scan” him, find the offending garment, and offer the guy to cut the tag or kill it with their handheld deactivation thingy.

Each time the guy would go all offended, loudly proclaiming that his clothes were his sacrosanct property and that no-one was allowed to modify them in any way, unless the store wanted a lawsuit on their hands.

He did that for 2 or 3 months. After a while, whenever the rent-a-cop would hear the beeping and see the guy, he’d just go “oh, that dude again”, shrug and carry on doing whatever he was doing.

And then the guy started shoplifting. And I mean, he f*ing lifted half of the shop, undetected, in plain sight! He only got caught because he was trying to conceal a mini-fridge under his coat or something not terribly inconspicuous :slight_smile:

The power of habituation. Pretty clever.

Hahaha that’s funny no i was more wanting some lights to power up in my arm without the downside of a battery or having to be really close to a scanner, I don’t want it for evil I wanted it more as a talking point, either placed in my arm or neck (wife will lose her shit if in neck though)

Never seen a LF one but HF ones do exist such as the DL8220

Nice find, I wonder how common they are?
I carry my diagnostic card in my wallet, I might start scanning shop doorways.

I think CVS has ones like that. Now I gotta check.

You can buy them on alibaba as well. At $1700 usd for a set, I think I will take a pass though.

This is cool, I’m glad my question could get people talking, I’ve seen on YouTube (I think the modern rogue did one) on a giant rfid reader and thought hmm that might be just a smaller security scanner I wonder if there is an implant that would work and if it would work in the arm neck etc

These are 13.56mhz EAS (electronic article surveillance) tags, typically iso15693. In fact, the Spark 1 chip has EAS/AFI features that we had to disable haha… didn’t want people setting off anti-theft gates.

To further address the OP… the xLED-HF may light up but it may need to be very close to the gate. The EAS function of ISO15693 is extremely low power.

Can I custom order one that doesn’t have these features disabled?

Actually, bad idea, scratch that. Still would be great though!

Or could they somehow be re-enabled perhaps?
