Rfid/NFC Nail Stickers

by thedovid on Fri Jun 28, 2019 6:36 pm

Hi! I purchased a bunch of these for a camp project (RFID Spy Detector Cards!). They light up when touched to my NFC enabled phone, but have no reaction on any RFID readers on doors (I tried multiple readers at multiple locations).

The product listing is here:

From the description:
"These are seriously cool wearable LEDs that light up when close to contact-less payment terminals, NFC smartphones, RFID card door locks, etc."

My project was based around the kids being able to run around looking for RFID door lock readers, so this kind of throws everything off.

Any Thoughts?

Thank you!

they need to be 13.56MHz RFID card readers - some door locks are 100KHz. we updated the text to clarify you need 13MHz!
