This article outlines what hardware is required to utilize Visitu and which models are supported.
To use Visitu, you will need to access your web dashboard. This requires a computer (PC or Mac) with a web browser (Google Chrome) and an Internet connection.
To use Visitu, you must have an iPad. If you’d like to print visitor badges, you must also have a supported Brother printer and badges. We recommend using an iPad stand for your sign-in iPad, but it is not required.
Visitu is currently only available for iPad and is not compatible with any other tablet makes or models.
iPads: iPad (2017 - current), iPad Air 2, iPad Air
iPad Pros: iPad Pro 9.7 inch (current), iPad Pro 12.9 inch (current)
Note: You can use Visitu with an iPad (4th generation), iPad (3rd generation) and Apple iPad 2, but it is not supported or recommended. These iPads do not support the current version of Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) and the camera will not scan QR codes or PDF 417 2D bar codes on any State issued Driver's License.
Supported Label Printers
We recommend the Brother QL-820NWB printer, which is available for purchase from retailers including Amazon and Staples. Visitu also supports the Brother QL-810W and two older models of Brother printers, and the QL-720NW. We used to support the Brother QL-710, but this printer has been discontinued by Brother: https://www.brother-usa.com/products/ql710w.
