  • RFID wristbands keep cash out of the water

    RFID-based cashless payments are making a splash at Cedar Fair's Dorney Park & Wildwater Kingdom in Allentown, Pa. PDC announced that its Smart Band RFID Wristband and Kiosk System are now in use throughout the park. The PDC Smart RFID Wristband Dispensing Kiosk features touchscreens provided by EuroTouch and custom software developed by KioWare. The kiosk can be programmed to perform a wide variety of functions, such as self-service ticketing, fast-pay upgrades, cashless POS, locker and tube rentals, keyless hotel room entry, social media integration, electronic access control, photo management systems and customer loyalty programs, the announcement said. Guests can walk up to any kiosk and load money onto a wristband or check their FastPay account balance. Serving as a "wrist wallet," FastPay wristbands provide guests with secure cashless purchasing at gift shops, restaurants and food carts – enhancing the guest experience, according to the announcement. In addition to wristbands, guests can purchase FastPay gift cards at any of the parks' gift shops. "This program is all about convenience for our guests," said Jason McClure, vice president and general manager of Dorney Park. "By partnering with PDC to offer this new payment option, guests can carry their money digitally on their wristband and enjoy a day at Dorney Park & Wildwater Kingdom wallet free. We want our guests to have the best day of their summer here at Dorney Park & Wildwater Kingdom, and FastPay is another program to help accomplish this goal." Read more about outdoor kiosks.…

  • Pressure-sensitive kiosk security mat fights ID theft

    Recognizing the vital need for increased protection against identity and information theft, Larco has introduced the hands-free and pressure-sensitive USB Kiosk Security Mat to protect critical data. Tailgating events such as ‘shoulder surfing' result in damaging consequences from stolen passwords, PINs, credentials, financial and other sensitive data. Placed in front of the kiosk, pressure must be applied to the mat before system log-on is possible. When pressure is removed (or the user steps away), the mat automatically and instantaneously logs the user off the system. Utilizing a common plug-and-play connection with a standard USB cable, the mat can be quickly linked to the kiosk computer system and works seamlessly with existing security features. The security mat is a preventative technology suited for transactional self-service kiosks at banks, financial centers, airport security, hospitals (patient check in/or visitation rooms), government and military offices, human resource stations, and retail stores (loyalty registry). Larco is evaluating next generation kiosk mat technology as both a wireless and USB activation trigger for biometrics, RFID, robotic and remote camera imaging, digital signage, and inventory control. KioWare kiosk software is configurable with retractable kiosk printers that work with the Larco Kiosk Security Mat. If printed documents are forgotten by the user, they are retracted back to an internal disposal box, thus maintaining the user's privacy. Additionally, the application is reset, clearing all cookies, cache and user history immediately after the user steps away from the mat. Larco's product line includes door-activation mats and wall switches for the automatic door industry, heavy duty, safety presence sensing mats used for industrial machine safeguarding, and consumer privacy protection products in the security markets. …
