About Readers & Probes
iButton readers & probes are used to read and input information on iButtons. Some readers, such as the iButtonKeyboard, use a simple writing software to obtain and write the unique iButton ID in seconds. Other readers, such as the LinkUSBi Touch and Hold can also be used to "mission" or configure iButtons.
For a walk-through on how to use the iButtonKeyboard, please visit: How-To: iButtonKeyboard.
