Pairing helmet intercoms used to be a fiddly process, but now QR codes are making it easier.
You may have recently used a QR code when checking in at a restaurant during this pandemic, so you will know how easy it is to use.
Just turn on your phone’s camera and hold it over the code, and it brings up a window which you click to then enter details.
Some helmet intercom products are now using a similar QR code system and the latest is popular Bluetooth company Sena with their Smart Intercom Pairing (SIP) system.
It will work with nearly all Sena devices and many Sena-powered devices with Bluetooth 4.1 that are branded by companies such as Harley-Davidson, Schuberth, Shoei, HJC, Polaris, Klim, Nexx, ICON, AGV, and more.
How it works
Instead of using your phone’s camera to scan the QR code, the Sena SIP system works via their Sena app which does much the same.
Just scan your friend’s QR code and you’re paired.
