Status Scanner Reader Setup in Dashboard

Before you begin setting up your reader, having a location already set up is a recommended best practice. Likewise, if you will be using groups, it is recommended that your groups be created before creating your reader.

Reader Options for GT Scans Status Readers

There are several options for status scanner reader types. Some of these options can only be used with the Gramercy Tech Check-in App while running in kiosk mode. The options below are compatible with the GT Scans App.
