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 text box in the web app and scan the asset label of the Item or Kit to find it back easily.
Our web app supports USB / BlueTooth barcode scanners which:
Support HID mode since they simply emulate a keyboard.
Support 2D barcodes, if you want to scan our QR codes
Support 1D barcodes, if you only want to scan simple barcodes
You can choose any scanner that matches the requirements above, but we've had great results with these:
OPTICON - OPI-3301i
which is a Bluetooth connected scanner
OPTICON - OPI3601
which is an affordable USB connected scanner
How do I know if my scanner is supported?
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.
