Back in 2014 we've embarked on a journey to a world of smart workplaces. We did that by introducing a state of the art technology powered with Bluetooth (BT) in our products that range from smart desks to stand alone sensors. These devices would pair with your smartphone and work as a means of authentication.
This proved to be a success, especially once connected with electric sit-stand desks used to power the sit-stand program, which increases sit-stand desk usage. The industry dictates that the NFC and RFID cards are still used quite intensively through the vast majority of offices. Even though BT is breaking ground with access control systems too, we are on a mission to supply our products to ALL companies - also to those who want to use the NFC and RFID cards.
The number of smartphones and other devices with NFC technology is growing rapidly so we've decided to ease the process for those companies that wish to continue the use NFC and RFID cards. From now on you will be able to use the TableAir NFC and RFID Reader (NRR) device to identify users with ease.
Instead of pressing the SB1 or taking your smartphone to do the check-in via BT, the NRR device will save time for your employees. Simply touch it with your card to checkin and touch it again to check out - could not be more simple.
If a need be - use the same card and make the workspace/meeting room available again. The device is compatible with an entire portfolio of TableAir products.
More over, if you'd like to discretely hide the NRR underneath the desk, you can attach the scanner and hide it under wooden tabletops as long as they're not thicker than 40mm.
