Using a Device's Camera as a Barcode Scanner


When inspections are being performed on a mobile device other than one which utilizes a certified barcode scanner, the device's camera can be used in place of a laser barcode scanner. 

After tapping into a zone, a barcode icon is visible at the top of each screen. To open the camera barcode scanner simply tap on the icon.

This opens the scan screen. Hover the red line over the center of the barcode until the barcode is recognized. This requires enough light for the camera to focus the barcode image. If additional light is needed, click the flashlight icon at the bottom right corner of the scan screen to turn the device's flashlight on for the scan. Once the barcode is successfully scanned the scan window will close and the app will proceed to the checkpoint screen.
