At some point you might want to test your SCRAMBLER©. It's easier than you might think.
The easiest way to test your SCRAMBLER© is to expose it to a 13.56 Mhz signal. This will make a tiny LED test light blink inside the lock symbol on the front of the card. This means that SCRAMBLER© is functioning properly.
NOTE: your phone must have the pay capability in order to test your SCRAMBLER© using a smart phone, since there is no 'Pay" app available at this time. The most common are: Apple Pay, Google Pay, Android Pay, Samsung Pay, and there are others.
Another way many of our customers test their SCRAMBLER© is placing next to their (wave) entry badge. Most electronic entry systems now use a 13.56 Mhz signal, which means SCRAMBLER© will prevent the door from opening, so you know it is working.
You can test it the same way using a wave and enter hotel card since almost all hotel doors use a 13.56 Mhz frequency. You can also test it at RF pay point terminals commonly found in stores and gas stations. Just bear in mind that in about 3 years we've sold thousands and thousands of SCRAMBLER© cards with no fails!
Here's how to test SCRAMBLER© using your smart phone:
Turn on your phone's NFC (Near Field Communication) wireless pay signal, then hold your SCRAMBLER© face up (so you can see the test light) on your phone wherever the NFC signal is being beamed- usually from the top or back of your phone. When the NFC signal reaches the card, the LED will light up. It's just that easy!
Some other useful information-
SCRAMBLER© is a 'passive' device, which means it is 'sleeping' until needed to block your identity from being sent wirelessly
via RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) to hackers. Because SCRAMBLER© has no battery or moving parts, we expect it to last indefinitely- our best guess: at least 5 to 7 years, which is longer than the current RFID technology is likely to be used.
