About the WayLink Scanner
The WayLink scanner is our convenient accessory that makes it fast and easy to scan WayTag NFC tags. Continuous scanning lets you quickly scan one WayTag NFC tag after another, while keeping your phone hands-free!
The WayLink scanner is an NFC reader that connects to your smart device wirelessly via Bluetooth Low Energy, or "B.L.E." It is about the size of a credit card, and one-half inch thick. Two corners are angled. While holding the WayLink scanner vertically, position these angled corners to the top-left and bottom-right to have the front of the WayLink scanner face you.
The front side of the WayLink scanner is smooth. There are two LED lights at the top angled corner. The back side has four bumps, one in each corner. On the back of the WayLink scanner, near the center, you will find a panel covering a rechargeable Lithium-ion battery. When you're using the WayLink scanner, hold the center of the WayLink scanner on top of the WayTag. You may use the front or back side when scanning.
On the WayLink scanner's top edge, there is a toggle switch and a USB port. The toggle switch has three positions:
- When the toggle is toward the outside, angled edge, the WayLink scanner is on using Bluetooth.
- When the toggle is in the center position, the WayLink scanner is off.
- When the toggle is furthest away from the angled edge, it is in USB mode.
A USB cable is included with your WayLink scanner, which you may use for charging. It takes about 50 minutes to fully charge.
On the right side is a push button to wake up the WayLink scanner if it has gone to sleep. When active, the WayLink scanner will remain charged for 5.25 hours or 6,345 NFC scans.
The two LED lights on the front provide additional information. The lower-left LED light is a Communications indicator and the upper-right LED light is a Battery indicator. When the lower-left Communication LED is blue, the WayLink scanner is communicating in Bluetooth mode. When the Communicator LED is red, the WayLink scanner is communicating in USB mode. When the Communication LED is off, the WayLink scanner is off or in sleep mode.
