1. Charge the scanner.
All scanners must be fully charged before first use. Fully charging the built-in battery can take up to 5 hours. To start charging, pull back the rubber charging port cover and connect the scanner to power using the included USB-C charging cable, or place it in the optional charging cradle or stand (each sold separately).
2. Turn the scanner on
Once your scanner is fully charged, you’ll use Bluetooth to connect the device to the iPad wirelessly. Press the smaller button to turn the scanner on, and listen for one beep.
3. Scan this barcode
When this barcode is scanned successfully, the device will emit a pattern of several beeps/tones. You may need to scan from 1-2 feet away and/or try different angles. This barcode activates iOS mode.
Skip this step if you're pairing this scanner with a computer for use with Back Office rather than the Register app.
4. Connect the device in Settings
Note: if the device initially appears as "Keyboard", the barcode in step 3 did not scan successfully. Retry scanning before connecting.
5. Connect in the Register app
Open the Register app, tap the 3 horizontal lines in the upper left, then Settings.
Tap Barcode Scanner.
If the app is not detecting your barcode scanner, but it shows as Connected in the iPad Bluetooth settings, most likely the barcode in step 3 above did not scan successfully. Otherwise, scan the on-screen barcode to confirm the connection.
Setting up automatic scanning mode with the optional QX Stand:
The Socket Mobile QX Stand (sold separately) is an optional piece of equipment that charges the scanner and allows for automatic scanning mode. When automatic scanning mode is enabled, the scanner reads barcodes and QR codes automatically without the need to press the scan button.
To enable this mode, before pairing the scanner, scan this QR code (also located on the bottom of the QX stand itself):
Proceed to pair the scanner with your iPad following the steps above. Place the scanner in the stand, and position a barcode or QR code label in front of the scan lens to start ringing up products.
