How do I set up my Socket Mobile Scanner for the iPad?

Setting up your 7Qi/7Ci Socket Mobile Scanner for iPad

To set up your Socket Mobile scanner for iPad follow the steps below:

Note: We do also recommend the Socket Mobile QX Stand (sold separately) and comes with added intelligence which lets you take full advantage of it in Presentation Mode or “Grab & Go” feature for scanning people in and out of your locations quickly. This is a Bluetooth scanner so it will connect wirelessly to the iPad.

1. Press and hold the small power button until the LED turns blue, and it beeps twice (it will beep low and then high).

2. Your Socket barcode scanner is now powered on. For use with the iPad, you'll want to set the scanner to iOS mode.

The scanner will automatically add to WolKiosk when iOS mode is running. Tapping other fields during iOS mode will open the on-screen keyboard.

To enable iOS mode, print this page and scan the below barcode. The scanner will beep 3 times to confirm the mode change.

Tip: Try scanning the following barcodes directly on the screen, if it does not work, print off this page and scan it from there. These barcodes will also be in the manual that came with your socket mobile scanner.

3. Next, head to your iPad and tap the 'Settings' icon to open the Settings App. Tap the 'Bluetooth' menu to open the Bluetooth settings.

4. Turn Bluetooth on. Your iPad will search for available devices to connect with. Once it locates the barcode scanner, Socket CHS, tap it to connect.

Your scanner should now be all set up and ready to go. To test that it is working correctly, open the WolKiosk app.

Having trouble connecting your scanner?

If the scanner is appearing in the Bluetooth list on your iPad but not connecting, tap the 'i' icon and choose 'Forget This Device'. Next, hold down the two top buttons on the scanner until you hear 3 descending tones. You've now successfully unpaired the scanner. Try to pair it again using the above steps.

Scanner Disconnecting:

If both your iPad and Socket Mobile scanner are left unused for long enough, they will enter sleep mode. When the Socket scanner goes into sleep mode, it will be disconnected from the iPad. To reconnect your Socket Mobile scanner to your iPad, make sure that the WolKiosk app is up and running and turn on the scanner as normal.

Once you've done this, the scanner will take up to 30 seconds to automatically reconnect. It will beep when that happens.
