B.3. Network Card Reader Service

SavaPage ships with a Network Card Reader Service to be deployed on a Raspberry Pi®. The service is tested to work with the popular ACS ACR122U reader. The installation instructions can be found in:

/opt/savapage/providers/nfc/linux-armv6/README

Note

Other ACS USB readers mentioned in the README should work as well.

Any deployed service must be entered as SavaPage Device. See Section 4.9.1, “Network Card Reader”. At each card swipe the UID of the card is read and send to the central SavaPage server, where it is handled in context of the device definition.

You can link sounds and scrips to various events. Sample files are provided for your own customization, for example to communicate with PiGlow, Pibrella or PiFace Control & Display add-on boards.
