Bar ID Scanner

With a bar ID scanner, you can easily verify age of all customers coming into your business.

Bar ID Scanner

Failing to stop underage purchases without a bar ID scanner can put your establishment’s license at risk.

Bars and other alcohol-selling establishments that fail age compliance checks several times are in danger of losing their license, and in some states, the owners can be hit with citations and fines as well.

Nightclubs and bars that want to make sure their business is complying with alcohol sales laws depend on service staff to check and validate IDs.

Help your team stop sales to minors by implementing a ID Validation solution from TokenWorks with our Bar ID Scanner tools. Read more below about our best selling mobile scanning device, the IDVisor Smart from TokenWorks.

Alcohol To-Go? A bar ID scanner is absolutely necessary.

With what’s going on in the world, rules for food and drink delivery are changing, including the legalization of alcohol delivery and takeout from bars and restaurants. Some laws absolutely require an ID scanner for these sales, but your bar should implement an age verification system like our IDVisor Smart V2 ID scanner regardless to remain compliant.

See, Hear and Feel Warnings

Color Coded Warnings, Talking Warnings, Vibration

The IDVisor Smart makes it almost impossible to miss a warning. Earlier generation scanners with monochrome displays simply showed the ID’s calculated age, which could be misinterpreted by tired employees. This scanner displays the calculated age and then updates color coded icons, a color coded status message, sounds an audible alarm and vibrates, making almost impossible to overlook a problem ID.

  • One or Two Age Icons turn Green or Red
  • Status Message is Green Red or Yello
  • Talking Warnings or Audible Warnings with Volume control
  • Vibrates on Warning Events – Feel the Warning

Important Features Beyond Basics

ID Scanner Underwater

Water and Dust Seal

IP56 Rating – Sealed Against Water and Dust

Bars are wet locations and things behind the bar or at the door will get wet. This scanner is IP56 rated which means you can spray it with a hose and it works in the rain / snow or sleet. The IP56 rating states:
Protection for the enclosed equipment from dust and other materials such as dirt, oils and non-corrosives. Small quantities of dust can enter the enclosure, but the quantity of dust cannot impact the operation of the equipment.

Protection from voltage and moving parts for people who come in contact with the enclosure
Protection from splashing water, hose-driven water, rain, sleet, snow and corrosion.
Note: IP56 does not mean waterproof, so don’t leave it submerged in a sink!

Customer Relationship Management

Here are some Cool CRM Features

Customer Visit Count

The Visit Count, shown on the main screen, tells the operator how many times a client has visited the business. This gives the operator valuable information like this is a new client, so introduce them to the business OR a frequent visitor who should be rewarded by not waiting in line and who perhaps is less of a security risk.
Email / Phone Capture

Email and Phone capture does several things. Beyond the obvious of capturing this data, it also confirms customers have opted into the marketing campaigns. Email and phone data is entered via a finger keyboard on the capacitive touch screen.
Scan Count

Scan Count increments every time an ID is scanned and provides a means to track venue occupancy. with increment / decrement button – tracks venue occupancy

Advanced Optional Features – Field Upgradeable

VIP / Banned Tagging

Identify Clients with Tags

Tags are important if you need to identify clients. Standard tags like Banned, VIP, CheckID, 911, SOS, BarStaff, Owes Money and member are already defined but you can create custom tags like “owners friend” or “temp member”. Bars and clubs are tough environments. Your organization is thus able to provide individualized treatment to customers when they arrive.
Tag Expiration date means you can Ban somebody for 3 months or 3 years!

Tag Notes add additional details to a tagged person. For Example, a Banned person might have a note like “started fight on 6/1/2014” or a VIP might have a note like “Great Client – Keep Happy at all cost”

ID Scanner Tagging Feature Interface
ID Scanner Anti-Passback Feature Interface

AntiPass Back – Shared ID Warnings

The AntiPass Back software detects when an ID is re-scanned in the same evening. It can be used several ways;

  • at the front door to detect licenses which are ‘Passed-Back’ to others
  • confirm returning patrons have already paid cover charge
  • at the bar to identify individuals who are consuming too much
  • helps detect fake IDs which have the same ‘cloned’ data stripe
  • can detect duplicate IDs when somebody has “loaned” a duplicate ID to a younger friend / sibling
  • detect if a wrist band was already issued to an individual.
  • at events, you can detect if a free sample has already been given to an attendee.

Some clubs use the ID Pass-Back detection to ensure wrist bands or ink stamps have not been transferred from existing customers. If a customer’s ID was scanned when they first entered and were wrist banded or stamped, then when they leave & return, an ‘ID Pass-Back’ alarm should be generated when the ID is rescanned.

Passback threshold can be set from 1 hour up to 168 hours (7 days). Some applications require same evening passback detection while others want detection in the last 7 days.

Multiple passback events with date/time are displayed. This permits operators to allow multiple serves. For example, a stadium has a four beer limit – each time a client is served, their ID is scanned and this provides a count for the number of serves.

Note: With IDVisor Sync software, it’s possible to network multiple scanners and have anti-passback warnings across a network. A 30,000 seat football stadium has implemented IDVisor Sync – call us for details.

Pictures – Free Pics

Two Pictures Per Customer

Take 2 pictures for each customer (picture of ID and/or picture of individual or Auto or License plate) which become part of the customer’s record and appear whenever the ID is re-scanned.
Free Pics

The Free Pics feature is for quickly capturing images of unscannable IDs such as passports or green cards. These photos prove due diligence and can be referenced later to determine an individuals identity. The free pics button is available right on the main ID Scanner form for easy access and on the home screen.
