by Shinna Hu Leading Electronics Company
Thanks to wireless barcode scanners; keeping an inventory, monitoring the manufacturing process, and tracking goods have become easier. Businesses are able to function more efficiently. No wonder, they are currently the most preferred price scanners and barcode readers these days. 

Are you excited to start using your new wireless barcode scanner? Then take note of the following tips so you can maximize their utility: 

1. Follow the instructional manual.

Before you get ahead of yourself and set up the wireless barcode scanner, read the device's manual first. While most barcode scanners look the same, their installation steps vary widely. Following the instructions given by the manufacturer is the best way to ensure that you are setting it up correctly. 

2.  Verify your PC's Bluetooth status.

If you are using an old-model computer, then double-check if it has an in-built Bluetooth feature. If not, then you must install a Bluetooth adapter and a driver first. Otherwise, you won't be able to pair your wireless scanner with your PC. 

3. Turn on the auto-induction mode.

If your wireless barcode scanner has this feature, then take advantage of it. By turning on the auto-induction mode, you can scan products continuously and quickly without needing to press the trigger. The device will automatically scan and read once it detects the barcode from a distance. The best way to use this feature is to place the device in a stand. This way, you can use both of your hands in scanning products. 

4. Enable storage mode when bulk scanning.

One of the most essential features to look for in a barcode scanner is storage mode. This allows you to scan even if the device has lost connection to the receiver because you are too far from it or because there are physical walls blocking the transmission signal. Storage mode enables the device to scan offline and store the barcodes in the built-in memory card. 

5. Be careful not to drop your scanners.

The absence of wire makes the device more prone to drops. You must be very careful while using the scanner because it has a lot of parts that can easily get damaged. If you want to be sure, you can a wear wrist strap while using it.
