How to Use QR Code to Encode Useful Information


We heard one could use QR Code to encode stuff like wireless network information, SMS messages, phone numbers, Twitter information, and Twitter Tweets.

How is this done?

Application: Mobile, Tablet, Desktop, Server

IDAutomation offers free online generators for some of these purposes:
Contact Information
WiFi Access
Website
GS1 Data


As technology advances, more and more operating systems are incorporating barcode scanning functionality. This answer is not specific to any operating system (mobile, desktop, or server), but instead focuses on the encoding of information in QR Code to provide the user with the convenience it affords.

In keeping to this generality, the IDAutomation product that will be demonstrated (for its ability to be used in many implementations) is the online demo of the Dynamic Barcode Generator Subscription.

The following are the data to pass for each QR Code type wanted (minus the brackets) and with the first example's barcode shown (click the barcode for the implementation parameters as a URL):

1. Wireless Network Information:

WIFI:T:[WEP, WPA (for WPA/WPA2), no T element for open network];S:SSID (name of network);P:Password;;

Examples:
· WIFI:T:WPA;S:MyNetwork;P:MyPassword;;
· WIFI:T:WEP;S:MyNetwork;P:MyPassword;;

2. SMS/MMS Message:

SMS:SMSTO:[telephone number with or without dashes]:[message to send]

Examples:
· SMS:SMSTO:8135142564:IDAutomation - Your Source for Quality Symbology
· SMS:SMSTO:1-813-514-2564:IDAutomation - Your Source for Quality Symbology

3. Phone Number (by itself, used for direct dialing or as a contact):

TEL:[telephone number with or without dashes]

Examples:
· TEL:8135142564
· TEL:1-813-514-2564

4. Twitter Feed:

TWITTER:[Twitter link]

Example: TWITTER:https://twitter.com/IDAutomation

5. Twitter Tweet:

TWEET:http://www.twitter.com/home?status=#[Twitter Message]

Example: TWEET:http://www.twitter.com/home?status=#@IDAutomation - Your Source for Quality Symbology!
