Adding to the recent deployment of our new wifi integration we are happy to release our RFID check-in system.

This system allows a coworking space to give each member a card and when they come into the space have them check in by swiping it. This gives the space the same benefits as the wifi integration such as automatically using the day passes of members with a limited plan and getting attendance statistics.

Here’s what it looks like using a USB card reader attached to a laptop:

You will need an old PC and a USB card reader which you can buy easily from most electronics stores for $50 or less.

We have created a page with detailed instructions on how to set up your own swipe card system.
