Contactless technologies (NFC/RFID) are supported on our products by two means :
- Direct access via pcsclite.
- Managed via product administration.
This service allow you to control your product playlist with NFC tags.
Holusion advises the use of ccid compliant readers
Product configuration to use contactless readers takes only a few seconds.
Set Up :
- Connect yourself to your product’s administration interface
- Plug in your NFC reader through the back panel USB
When placing a card in range from the reader, the admin interface will display it’s unique ID (“Options” tab).
Once copied this ID can be added to a media’s configuration panel by clicking on it’s icon.
Note : “nfc” must be written in lower case. Don’t forget to click on to save changes.
How it works
When a card is on the reader :
- medias assigned to its tag are enabled
- All other medias are disabled
When no card is detected :
- Videos having no associated tag are enabled
- Videos having a nfc tag are disabled
To stop NFC tracking, just delete the config line using the icon on conf panel and save changes.
