AirID 2



AirID 1

The AirID reader can lock your WINDOWS or mobile (iOS or Android) apps (if configured) automatically, if a (preset) distance between your computer and your AirID has been exceeded. The "Distance Log-Out" is managed in AirID settings using "Distance Sensor" (with AirID 2) or "Coverage" (with AirID 1). 

This setting is optional and can only be configured if there is an active Bluetooth connection to the a device.

You can use pressetings or set the distance manually.

Following pressetings are available:

  • Near (~ 65 dB)
  • Mid (~ 75 dB)
  • Far (~ 80 dB)

In comparasion to the possible pressetings, the manual setting allows an individual fine adjustment.

If the manual setting is selected, the curent RSSI value is shown in the display. Slowly walk around in the area you want your device to remain unlocked. Press the jog dial at the preferred distance to confirm the coverage area and activate the Distance Sensor function.

Settings can only be changed with an active Bluetooth connection between your computer and AirID reader.

To avoid unintended disconnects, keep in mind that the minimum distance for the automated log-out is about three meters between your computer and AirID reader.

The distance value for the "Distance Sensor" feature represents a relative value. It depends on the signal strength of the AirID, on the environment and on other interferencing signals.

5. Using AirID

AirID supports various operating systems like Windows, MacOS, Linux, iOS and Android. The basic requirement is the Bluetooth Low Energy functionality of the device. When AirID is successfully paired and the driver is installed, the inserted smart card is available to be used for cryptographical operations such as authentication or data encryption. This requires an applet on the smart card and the corresponding middleware for the operating system used

The AirID software consists of two components:

  1. AirID Central App - a management software for your AirID forming the basis for usage of the device. The tool provides you with information and setting options for your AirID when your reader is connected to your device. 
  2. AirID drivers, which ensures the communication between the AirID and the operating system, must be installed additionally depending on the platform or is already integrated in the Apps and solutions of third party vendors.

AirID can be used with different terminals and platforms, but not in parallel operation.

5.1. Windows
