A security system includes a base station that reads a first tag and a second tag, each tag associated with items, persons, and/or containers. Upon reading the tags, the base station determines whether the removal of the items, persons, and/or containers is authorized. If the removal is not authorized, the base station may activate an alarm, lock the exit, and/or generate a message for delivery to a remote site. The security system may also be integrated with an inventory control system to monitor the location and status of the items, persons, and/or containers.
