About The IDWare Falcon

How It Works

The IDWare Falcon All-in-One Mobile Android Countertop ID Scanner scans both IDs and passports.

It validates the ID, and verifies age and ID expiration date, and performs 2D barcode security to detect for IDs with anomalies in the PDF417 barcode. ID information is immediately parsed and sent into the built-in visitor management system, VeriScan.

VeriScan creates or updates a record for each individual, and logs the visit history—securely in the cloud—with a date and time-stamp.

Create & Manage Lists

Veriscan allows you to classify users, including frequent guests, VIPs, and banned individuals. Banned lists can be configured to send automatic alerts via email or SMS to your management or security team.


All visitor records are shared across locations in real-time and stored securely in the cloud. Records are accessible through a web-based admin panel. You can review demographic information across multiple venues and locations. Purchase multiple IDWare Falcons, or share data across a variety of desktop or handheld ID scanners.

Kiosk Mode

Because the IDWare Falcon ID Scanner is front facing, and can be purchased with a durable desktop stand, it is ideal for self check-in situations, access management, and kiosk mode applications.
