What do you need?

 

  • Any RFID reader (USB with keyboard and “enter” emulation)

It sounds as some kind of engineering operation, but in fact it is the most popular RFID readers standard, and even though there are many different models available on the market, it would be hard to get one below this standard.

Czytnik RFIDTIP: For your convenience the whole kit: tested with Prodio readers + cards / key-fobs you can order FROM US / or get as a bonus with your annual subscription package.

  • Cards/key-fobs/RFID stickers

The situation is analogical to choice of readers, there are only to standards RFID 125kHz / NFC (depending on a reader you choose).  125kHz readers are cheaper, but fully workable and enough. NFC readers are a good choice if you wish to register production using a smartphone.

 

Karta i brelok RFID TIP: When choosing your kit, think which one would be more convenient and safer (ex. neck key leash isn’t suitable for someone leaning over machines. Our favourites are: key-fob + SKIPASS holder or silicone hand band).Nasza rekomendacja

 

How to set up registration at the production hall?

  • Assign cards/key-fobs to employees
  1. Connect a card reader to a computer (where you have your manager’s account opened).  99% of USB readers install automatically.
  2. Assign cards / key-fobs to particular employees.
„Settings” -> “Employees”. Next, you edit the employee, whom you wish to give a card.Set a cursor in the box Code NFC or RFID (as if you wanted to enter information manually), the “line” symbol should pulse.Put a card to the reader. The software should read a code from the card and you take you back to the list.

FAQ – Most frequently asked questions

 

  • Is it possible to use both PIN number and card system to log in?

    Yes, it is – the most important is to choose a system which suits your company best.

  • What if an employee forgets their card?

    They will be able to log in manually, by entering their PIN code.

  • What if an employee loses / damages their card?

    You will issue a new card / key-fob, registering them in the system beforehand, the same as if it was the first registration. It will not affect working history in any way, etc.

  • In our company there is already working time registration system / access control system based on RFID key-fobs – can the same key-fobs be used in Prodio?

    Of course, there aren’t any contraindications – just register in Prodio currently used cards.
