What are the Hardware and Technical Requirements to get Started with Greetly?

Greetly works with...

Greetly is the highly configurable check-in app for business and events. Even better, getting started is easy. There are no setup costs or technical skills required. 

Tablet Computer

Greetly works with:

  • Apple iPads (iOS). More specifically, Greetly will function perfectly with any Apple iPad 2 or newer. Apple has stopped supporting that device though, so using an Apple iPad Air or later model will ensure all future Greetly features function perfectly.
  • Most Android tablets. If you want to know whether a specific model works, please email success@greetly.com with the manufacturer and model number. 
  • Greetly recommends having the following minimum specs:
    iOS 13,x or above (Android 10 or above) , 1.8 Ghz and 3GB RAM. USB-C if you are considering using Thermal temperature scanning, in future.


The only other required check-in app hardware is a mount to make sure your tablet is secure and highly visible to visitors. Your selection will depend on your lobby area, available space and cost. Standard options include:

  • Desktop stand
  • Floorstand kiosk
  • Wall mount

All options are readily available for every iOS and many popular Android tablets. If you need assistance in selecting the right hardware for your reception area, please contact us

Visitor Badge Printer (Optional)

Not only can Greetly capture visitor photos, but it can also print visitor badges. If you implement this option, Greetly is compatible with the Brother QL-820NWB printer and with DK-1202 labels. IMPORTANT: The sample labels shipped with the Brother printer are DK-2205. The printer will not respond unless the correct labels are used. <--
