You can use RFID readers and cards to automate check-ins in your space.
How RFID Check-in Works
You connect a RFID reader to a computer with access to your Nexudus account in the reception of your space and supply your customers with RFID access cards. Whenever the customer taps their card on the reader, they are automatically checked in. They'll be checked out when they tap their card on the reader a second time.
What You Need
A µFR Classic RFID reader
RFID check-in works with µFR Classic card readers. For more information, check out RFID NFC Reader Writer - µFR Classic.
You should also make sure you can plug the reader to a computer from which you can access your Nexudus account.
The cards you choose must be compatible with the µFR Classic RFID reader. Each of the cards comes with a unique code that you'll need to add to the corresponding customer's account on the Admin Panel.
Nexudus Door Controller
You also need to install the Nexudus Door Controller Software on the computer that you connected to your RFID reader.
Simply follow the instructions shown on the screen to complete the setup. Once you've successfully connected the software to your RFID reader, you can start registering RFID access card for customers.
Registering RFID Access Cards
Each card must be registered in the relevant customer account. The same card cannot be assigned to multiple customers at the same time.
Log in to dashboard.nexudus.com if you aren't already.
Click on the customer you want to edit.
Click Account > Access Rights.
Add the card's number in the Access card field.
Click the Save Changes button.
The customer should now automatically be checked in when they tap their card on the reader. They should also automatically be checked out when they tap the reader a second time.
