Using external scanners

You can use a connected 2D barcode scanner which is connected via USB or BlueTooth to your laptop. Just put your cursor in a textbox in the web app and scan the asset label of the Item or Kit to find it back easily.

Scanner support

Scanners which support HID mode are compatible with CHEQROOM, since they simply emulate a keyboard.

We usually recommend these one of the two scanners:

  • OPTICON - OPI-3301i
    which is a bluetooth connected scanner
  • OPTICON - OPI3601
    which is an affordable USB connected scanner


You can try to scan directly to a text file to see if the code looks correct. If it's not correct, you may need to take a look at the country or language settings of your 2D scanner
