Do I have to have a barcode scanner for check-in and if so, what type do I need?
Having a barcode scanner is not required to use KidCheck’s secure check-in system. However, they are necessary in order to use keytags to speed up the check-in process and for scanning name badge barcodes (used for seeing additional information and for electronic check-out).
To make things as easy as possible we offer competitively priced scanners specifically made for KidCheck. They are pre-programmed and ready to go out of the box and can be purchased at our KidCheck Store. Other scanners can also be used, as long as they are USB-based laser scanners (not CCD), can be set for a carriage return, and can read code 128 barcodes.
