TERTIUM Technology RFID Readers can be connected through Bluetooth Low Energy to any device such as smartphone or tablet equipped with Bluetooth v4.0 or later (Bluetooth Smart) interface.
To interact with mentioned readers you need a specific application that can connect to a Bluetooth Smart Ready device and manage a bi-directional communication.
To speed up the work of the developers we have made public, on the GitHub website ( https://github.com/tertiumtechnology ), the API libraries to build and implement the app to interact with our RFID readers.
The API libraries are available for the two Android and iOS operating systems.
TERTIUM Technology also developed TERTIUM BLE RFID Test, the app demonstrate how to use the API libraries.
Moreover the App Test is available on Google Play and Apple Store.
