QR Codes Decoded






New to QR codes? Quick Response codes, or QR codes for short, are a type of 2D bar code that can be scanned using a free smartphone application to display information associated with that code directly on a mobile device.

How is this being incorporated into real estate in southwest Missouri? For example, many agents here at Murney Associates are incorporating this new QR code technology into their ads and riders to provide quick and easy access to an individual property; including: videos, web pages or other detailed property information.

So what do you do when you see one of these strange digitized squares in an ad or on a Murney sign rider? First, you need to have a smartphone or tablet equipped with a camera. You will also have to have a code-reading app on your smartphone or tablet.

Most new models of Android and BlackBerry phones come with an app pre-installed. If you’re using an iPhone, iPad or other smartphone or tablet, you can download one of the many apps available free at the Apple App Store via iTunes, the Android Market, BlackBerry App World.

To scan a QR Code, such as the ones pictured on this Blog page, open the app on your smartphone and hold your device’s camera up to the QR code on the screen. Keep your hand steady and center the QR code on your phone or tablet screen. Once the camera locks onto the QR code, you’ll get a chime or similar sound that will confirm that the code was taken correctly. Next, the web page, video or other data linked to the QR should automatically open up. Congratulations, you just scanned your first QR code!
