Once the Reader is connected and displaying the standard screen, pressing the centre (blue) Reader button will activate the barcode scanner. A red dot and square will be projected from the end of the Reader. Point that red dot at the barcode or QR code that you wish to scan. If it’s not scanning, try moving the Reader closer or further away from the barcode or QR code (often the problem is the QR code being too close)
The red light will turn off again when it achieves a successful scan or after five seconds (whichever happens first). You’ll know you’ve had a successful read if the Reader beeps and buzzes, plus the number of IDs displayed on the screen will increase.
Continuous Scan Mode
Continuous scan mode on the Reader makes the Barcode/QR code reader motion activated, rather than having to press the centre button of the Reader to activate the scanner. See here for how to activate/deactivate Continuous Scan mode.
Show Scan Success
Sometimes a beep and buzz just aren't enough, if you'd also like a big tick to display on the Reader screen upon successful scan see here for how to activate/deactivate that option.
