I got the xDF2 as my second implant installed last Wednesday. The main purpose is to use it at work where a Security Management System (SMS) from Stanley is used. The specs on my current access card is Mifare Desfire EV1 4k.
Talked with the guy responsible for access management, and he willingly tried to “add” my xDF2 the same way he would issue a new card. However, the reader did not read the xDF2 at all. I have used the field kit to see where the reads are strongest, but the reader does not blink (not even red) when I have the xDF2 near.
I believed the process of adding the chip to the SMS would work out of the box, but I guess I need to initialise the xDF2 to enable it to be enrolled in the SMS?
Please advise if I need a writer and add some stuff to be able to enroll the card.
I have some programming skills, and might be able to program the xDF2 and prepare it if it is needed.
As a final question; the NFC reader on iPhone 8 (iOS 12) is not reading the xDF2 at all? NFC reader on MacOS returns “Unknown tech”.
