RFID Reader

We have partnered with leading provider Elatec to use their RFID reader for RFID Check-in.

Key information

  • The reader must be powered with the power cable and adaptor provided

  • The reader must be connected to the iPad via Bluetooth connection

  • Place the reader in close proximity to the iPad as Bluetooth only has a limited connection radius

  • You can connect multiple readers to one iPad
