Access Control Solutions & RFID

RFID, Ticket scanning and Ticket Alternative Express Entry

  • Wireless ticket scanning speeds up entry into your event by simply scanning a barcode on each customer's ticket.
  • RFID wristbands can be used for entry and cashless transactions within your event.
  • A handheld wireless scanner will verify each barcode by accessing a database in real-time allowing only one entry per barcode.
  • RFID scanners at the entrance to your event validate each wristband as it is presented.
  • Once a barcode/RFID wristband has been used to enter, it cannot be used again unless you allow in/out privileges at your event.

How does it work?

  • We send you a scanning kit with a number of handheld scanners a couple of days prior to your event.
  • It can take as little as 15 minutes to set up your kit.
  • We include a couple of test tickets to make sure everything works and get you familiar with the system.
  • It takes less than 5 minutes to train someone to use the handheld scanner.
  • Our solution is connected via the internet for real-time updates of barcodes.
  • The handheld scanner communicates with the laptop to check the validity of each ticket presented at the entrance to your event.
  • If the ticket is valid, the scanner will indicate so.
  • If the ticket has already been used, the scanner will indicate that the ticket has already been used and tell you when.
  • If the ticket is a fake, the scanner will indicate that the ticket is invalid because it cannot verify the barcode.
  • If someone forgets to bring their Print-At-Home or mobile ticket, you can manually validate their ticket with only their confirmation number.
  • If the customer's ticket is damaged you can manually validate their ticket.
  • You can disable stolen, lost or confiscated tickets.
