How does the RFID wristband work?The beauty of the RFID wristband is that it needs no batteries, & is instead powered when it is tapped or placed very close to an RFID reader, which reads the passive tag inside the wristband.
Main benefits of the RFID wristband:-
Contactless PaymentThe RFID wristband can be linked to a users credit/debit card, enabling them to pay for goods or services with a tap of the wrist. This system benefits both user & organiser as there is no cash to deal with or transport, no cards to lose, & much shorter time spent queuing & paying for goods.
Rather than having a traditional ticket or even an E-ticket on your smartphone, the RFID wristband enables a user to enter & exit a venue with ease, which drastically reduces both queuing times, & the need for as many staff to man the entrances.
The RFID wristband also helps to eliminate fraud, & the instant information for the organiser enables them to accurately ascertain attendance figures.
The RFID wristband can be linked to a users social media account, enabling them to share their experience with friends, family, & the world.
The organiser also benefits from this integration as the ‘tweets’ & ‘likes’ are creating brand awareness to a global audience.
