At each pairing event, a randomly generated six digit passkey is generated and displayed on both the device and the LED panel on the reader. The user must compare both numbers and acknowledge that they are the same. This feature is not available in older versions of Bluetooth (2.0 and lower). As a result, the reader will only operate with devices with Bluetooth version 2.1 and higher. The latest version of the reader firmware supports the simultaneous Bluetooth pairing of five (5) different devices, allowing to user to easily switch between a mobile phone and a desktop, for example.
