I am an electronics beginner but want to make two devices that can detect if they are near each other.

So if the devices enter a radius of less than 2 meters of each other they will both trigger an audible alarm

I need the devices to be as small as possible, i would use the term "micro" even, and be able to be recharged or even that fancy "wireless" recharging. The devices only need to be active for at least 5 days or longer

Thank you

  • \$\begingroup\$ @OliGlaser - Not Always line of sight and orientation could change. \$\endgroup\$ – user389391 Feb 27 '13 at 8:35

Could an Arduino Near Field Communication (NFC) shield do the job? Or a RFID shield. As an example: NFC Shield V2.0 of Seeed But there must be other once in the market.
