iPLAQUE Memorial Plaques
What Is An iPLAQUE® Memorial Plaque?
Our iPLAQUE memorial plaques are intended to supplement an existing memorial inscription or bench plaque. They enable an online memorial to be linked to a physical memorial. Anybody scanning an iPLAQUE® memorial plaque with a smartphone or device will be able to see further detailed information on your loved one by viewing their online memorial on the devices web browser.
How Do They Work?
An iPLAQUE® memorial plaque uses either a QR code or NFC tag to redirect a smartphone or device to an online memorial webpage.
The first method of a QR code is used on all types of iPLAQUE® memorial plaques. A QR or Quick Response code is a form of matrix barcode that can easiy be read by most smartphone cameras. Software within the smartphone decodes the web address in the QR code and redirects the phones internet browser to the online memorial webpage. For more information please see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/QR_code.
The second method of a NFC tag is used on all acrylic iPLAQUE® memorial plaques alongside a QR code. A NFC or Near Field Communication tag is commonly used in all contactless payment cards. The web address of the online memorial is programmed into the NFC tag so that as soon as the smartphone or device is in close proximity to the iPLAQUE® memorial plaque the devices web browser redirects automatically to the online memorial webpage.
