This technology is integrated in the majority of smart phones (Android and iPhones 7 or newer). If you have an Android, you need to verify that the NFC reader function is enabled. To have access to the digital profile the person should put the phone close to the article and go to the link to download the Poltags app. This will allow access to the profile with the emergency information.
In addition, the key fob includes QR Code. The QR Code is a type of barcode that stores information and can be read by a digital device, such as a cell phone. To access the digital profile, the person should activate the camera and scan the code. The link will send the person to download the Poltags app to have access to a digital profile.
