Photo verification of people or assets can be accomplished in three ways.
You can use the codeREADr app to scan a barcode and then take a photo. With photo postback the scanned ID is auto-inserted into a cloud-based database hosted by codeREADr and the corresponding photo stored in a special folder on your Dropbox account and directly linked to the scanned barcode’s ID.
When that ID is scanned again, the app will automatically display the corresponding photo along with any other content you want to display to the app user at the point of service.Because the ID is auto-inserted into the associated database, you have the option to start with a blank database. The auto-insert feature is particularly useful in applications where some or all of the IDs are not readily available prior to or concurrent with the verification process. We detailed this process here.
Using our Webify feature with an existing database of photo URLs, each associated to an ID, you can display the photo to the app user when the corresponding ID is scanned. How? When you upload your database to codeREADr’s servers you will need to include an HTML tag.
Postback URL or DSU
When using your own servers with PostbackURL or Direct Scan to URL (DSU) service types, you can post back to the app with an HTML tag as you would with the Webify option noted above.
