What are QR Codes?
QR Codes or Quick Response Codes, are small square computerised unique codes which can be scanned and read by mobile smart devise such as smart phones. This technology is quite new but is being used in many imaginative ways. You may have seen them on adverts in magazines...
How can QR Codes be used to record the lives of loved ones?
QR Codes have many uses, and in particular they can link directly to dedicated web pages to record people's lives with photographs, written information, music and video. A QR Code attached to a memorial can say so much more about a person's life with the advantage of being small and discrete.
QR Memories® codes can be attached to stone memorials*, benches, next to trees or shrubs, or even bronze memorial plaques for example. In each case, the code is linked directly to a relevant page on a website, offering the user the opportunity to learn a little more about the life of the person being remembered. A simple scan is all it takes.
QR Codes from QR Memories® can now provide this new and innovative way to record the lives and achievements of departed loved ones. The dedicated web page can either be available for you alone to view or for select family members, or you might chose to make it available to everyone, the choice is yours. When requesting a QR Code a username and password for the page will be provided enabling you to add and edit information as and when you see fit.
