Wireless Barcode Scanner for Android

Use your smartphone as a Wireless Barcode Scanner and scan barcodes remotely. The scanned bar code data is immediately available for further processing via Bluetooth, TCP/IP, UDP, HTTP or a WebSocket interface.

Scan barcodes with your Android Smartphone or Tablet

Affordable Barcode Imager

The app Wireless Barcode-Scanner turns your Android smartphone or Android tablet into a professional wireless barcode imager with outstanding communication features. The app is perfectly suited as cost-saving alternative for handheld barcode imagers; it scans and decodes common linear and 2D bar-codes swiftly and reliably.

Connectivity with arbitrary target systems is guaranteed. The scanned barcodes are available via the following technologies and protocols:

  • Bluetooth
  • TCP/IP
  • UDP
  • HTTP
  • WebSocket

Process Barcodes with HTML-5

Due to the new WebSocket support, HTML-5 applications and HTML-5 web-pages are now able to process scanned barcodes without additional software. In such a scenario, the web-page establishes a direct connection to the barcode scanner app: the decoded barcode data is available immediately for further processing.

Easy to Deploy

In contrast to most commercially available cordless barcode scanners, Wireless Barcode-Scanner for Android is easy to configure: All adjustments can be done in the user interface, the use of cryptic configuration barcodes belongs to the past. App settings can be imported from XML files, bulk installations are significantly simplified.

Visual GS1 Decoder

Whenever Wireless Barcode-Scanner detects a valid GS1 bar code (e.g. e GS1 QR-Code or a GS1 128 barcode) the app displays a list of the encoded application identifiers (AIs) along with AI description and encoded data value in a human readable form. The correct encoding of GS1 symbols and the meaning of the encoded values is verified easily by the user.

Keyboard Wedge Support

If none of the above outlined interface technologies can't be used with your PC-based target application, you may inject the decoded barcodes as simulated keystrokes into your legacy application. TEC-IT offers the keyboard wedge software TWedge for this purpose.
