To access your-custom made Memory Lane Memorial Page, simply scan your bespoke QR code with the camera of any modern smartphone, or mobile device (Android, or Apple) with internet access (WiFi, or 3G/5G).
The QR Code is a small, thin plate – 25mm wide and 30mm high – very discreet, and will fit on any memorial.
Most modern smartphones like iPhone, Samsung, Huawei and Oppo have the power to scan QR codes instantly via their built-in camera. For phones, or devices without this capability, NeoReader is a free/low-cost app that enables iPhone, Blackberry, Android and Windows devices to scan QR codes with ease.
The starting price for a custom-made Memory Lane Memorial Page is $300.00 inc GST. Each Memory Lane subscription includes NZ-wide track and trace delivery of your bespoke QR code. Additional QR codes can be purchased for $50.00 inc GST.
