How to add a Zaptec key (RFID/ NFC- tag)

If you want to start charging using an RFID/NFC tag instead of the app, you can easily register one on your user account in the Zaptec app or Zaptec Portal. 

You don't need a separate tag for this; you can use a tag you already have, such as the one for your front door or laundry room. ID06 and credit cards also works well.

Please note that the chargers read tags using the Mifare Classic protocol, the most common protocol for RFID and NFC.
