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.
