The Equip ID App uses Near Field Communication (NFC) which is central for transferring data between two devices. When you scan a Tag in the app, NFC is the function that makes this possible. To see how to enable this on your phone, see here.
Why NFC over QR?
An essential component of the Equip ID solution is NFC tags. Because NFC transactions cannot be duplicated, it's a clear choice over barcodes or QR codes. Most modern smartphones are equipped with NFC and make secure transactions with tools like Apply Pay or Samsung Pay.
Below is the list of supported devices and operating systems.
Android Compatible Devices & OS
Apple Compatible Devices & OS
- iPhone 8 and up.
- iPhone XR, XS will have slightly better performance while using the app.
- The latest version and the last 2 major versions. For example, if the current version is iOS 13, we support versions 13, 12, and 11.
If your mobile device does not have an NFC reader (for example, Apple iPads and iPods or Android tablets), you should be able to use a device camera to read the QR code on our Tags instead.
