idEye is a powerful scanning application developed for clubs and pubs and is used to read photo ID cards such as drivers’ licences and Proof of Age/18+ cards.

The patron’s ID card is scanned and the data is saved into a database. Details saved include the patron’s live camera photo, the card’s image and visable data. idEye searches the database for any ban or restriction imposed/recorded on the patron.

idEye is being used in many late night venues Australia wide in places as far afield as Geelong, Darwin, Brackenridge and Coolangatta and soon to be in Perth and Mackay.
