RFID General Information

RFID Cards or Key Fobs can be used to quickly confirm a user PIN code on the Lavu application. When the PIN screen appears, a user will swipe a Card/Fob, instead of manually entering a PIN code. This is commonly used for faster Clock In/Out, authorizing voids, discounts, and other restricted actions in the Lavu app.

Note: The RFID scanner requires an Epson TM-T88V-i smart printer and plugs in via USB, see the below section for hardware details.
