Digital ID card app for iOS and Android with Scannable Barcodes
Scanning an ID card with CodeREADr
Each digital ID displays a barcode that can be scanned using a 2D barcode scanner or a barcode scanner app, such as CodeREADr. Account administrators would create a database of students, employees, or members on CodeREADr.com in order to scan and validate any issued digital ID cards.
Administrators then authorize employees, teachers, aides, etc. to sign into the CodeREADr app and scan the digital (or plastic) ID. Alternatively, for unattended scanning, the administrators can place devices in specific locations and put the app into “kiosk mode” which uses the front camera. The devices used for scanning can be personal devices or business-owned devices specifically set up to scan ID cards.
School, organizations, and employers can then track attendance, control access, and track activities – such as required presence for maintenance crews, security guards and other field service workers.
Digital ID cards have many advantages over plastic ID cards. To learn more about ID123, you can visit the ID123 website and download the free app on the App Store and Google Play.
