Were there ever RFID or Bluetooth drivers for Premise? Since the Premise site is down, I can't do a search there.

I don't recall ever seeing any, but thought I'd ask.

I am looking to add some sort of device to "announce" someone's presence when arriving home to trigger events for that specific person.

Any thoughts?

I can't say I read all the postings in the original forum but I did read quite a few and I also don't recall any drivers for RFID or Bluetooth.

This receiver from CheaperRFID has an RS-232 port and claims to provide an ActiveX control. It shouldn't be too difficult to write a Module-based driver using the ActiveX control.

Certainly is cheap :)

I'll look into it. Thanks.
