Introduction to RFID

From Door Tablet V7.7 users of the Door Tablet AIO can exploit its built-in RFID hardware. RFID or NFC (Near Field Communication) allows users to easily identify themselves to Door Tablet and perform a range of functions fast and easily. Using RFID greatly improves security and opens the possibility of new features in the product.

RFID services are currently available on the Door Tablet AIO only. This may change in the future.

How is RFID used

  1. Users are given low cost RFID tags
  2. Tags are then used to touch the Door Tablet AIO and the code in the tag is read
  3. RFID codes are matched with the Door Tablet database on the server and converted to a verified identity
  4. The above identity is then used in conjunction with various actions

RFID enhanced functions
With version 7.7 of Door Tablet the following functions are enhanced by RFID:
  1. Administration login - administrators may register their RFID tag and use it for speedy server login
  2. User RFID cards registration by administrators - registration of this kind is instantly approved
  3. User RFID self card registration - available from single room and cluster displays. Approval may be delayed and provided later by an administrator, or instantly approved too
  4. Meeting space Reservations - RFID adds identity to your tablet based reservations. Once a card is used with a reservation, only that card can be used for extensions and terminations of the meeting
  5. Check-in and check-out - use the card that was previously used to reserve the meeting space or, for pre booked meetings, notify the originator who has checked in
  6. Meeting Extension and Terminations - use the RFID card to verify you own the meeting, to extend or terminate
  7. Assistance requests - your ID information is instantly added to your requests
Note: RFID cards may be disabled using the Admin Interface, if lost or abused.

Option 1

Option 2
When you first import users into Door Tablet. The user has less data to type in, namely they need to provide just the email address. Door Tablet will check the following:
  1. The RFID code is not already in use
  2. The user is identified by the email address exists
  3. There is no RFID code already in the user record
For more details on this option please see Database 'Door Tablet HELP', View 'Help Documents', Document 'Enable RFID software'

For the supported RF protocols please see here Database 'Door Tablet HELP', View 'Help Documents', Document 'NFC RF protocols'

From version 8.4.18 Door Tablet fully supports HiD cards. Using machines that read HiD is slightly different from standard RFID and is described here Database 'Door Tablet HELP', View 'Help Documents', Document 'HiD'
