Easiest is to buy them offshore from what I've found.

Will be very interested to hear the feedback on them. That price is fantastic, especially with the free shipping!

Of course! Proximity ID cards :)


Might have to take a wander down, and "test" out one of the ID printers

Oh wait....they have to be 13.25mhz NFC Prox cards :( bugger

What are you guys using to program them? There's a Samsung App on the market (https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.samsung.tectile), but it's not available in NZ :(

Be interested in having a play around with them, but not sure how I'd actually set up the tag to trigger something on my phone.
