The 3 recommended type of barcode scanners to work with the Odoo Inventory & Barcode Scanning apps are the USB scanner, the Bluetooth scanner and the Mobile Computer scanner.

Honeywell USB scanner

Honeywell 4800i

USB Scanner

If you scan products at a computer location, the USB scanner is the way to go. Simply plug it in the computer to start scanning.

Choose a USB barcode scanner if you plan to scan products at the computer station.

Inateck Bluetooth scanner

Inateck BCST-10

Bluetooth Scanner

The bluetooth scanner can be paired with a smartphone or a tablet and is a good choice if you want to be mobile but don't need a big investment.

Bluetooth connections are suitable for maximum 30 feet (10 meters) so you will have to scan products nearby the computer station.

Zebra TC21 scanner

Mobile Computer Scanner

For heavy use, the mobile computer scanner is the handiest solution. It consists in a small computer with a built-in barcode scanner.

This one can turn out to be a very productive solution. Go for it if you want to scan products at different locations.

Mobile Scanners

The most recent models using Android + Google Chrome should do the job.

Due to the variety of models and configurations on the market, it is essential to test it first.

USB / Bluetooth

Odoo supports most USB and Bluetooth barcode scanners (as they all emulate a keyboard). Just make sure when you buy it that the scanner is compatible with your keyboard layout or can be configured to be so. We've tested a few devices for you:

Motorola barcode scanner

Label Printers

For label printers, we recommend the Zebra ZD410 as we support ZPL protocol for automatic printing from POS.

This printer has been tested on most label formats (PDF, PNG, ZPL) for all carriers we support (UPS, Fedex, USPS...)
