Scanner SDK for Android

Scanner Software Devlopment Kit

Easily Develop Scanning Applications for Android Tablets and Smartphones

Your workers are using Android tablets and smartphones to streamline everyday processes — but the scanning functionality of their built-in cameras lack the speed, performance and ergonomics needed to capture barcodes quickly, easily and accurately. Now, with the Zebra Scanner SDK for Android, give your workers a powerful Bluetooth® Zebra cordless scanner that can be controlled through your Android tablet and smartphone line of business applications. All scanner functions are easily integrated into your Android application, reducing development time and cost.

The result? Your workers get the enterprise-class scanning performance they need to maximize productivity in a scanner that brings all-day comfort to the most scan-intensive jobs.

  • Display Barcode Data in Your Application

    Let users see all data in any scanned barcode to verify the right item was scanned — and help error-proof your processes.

  • Control LEDs, Beeper and Vibration Feedback

    Configure the three types of feedback indicators in Zebra cordless scanners to meet the needs of your specific environment. A busy retail store may enable the beeper and LED lights, while a hospital may choose to disable the beeper so sleeping patients aren’t disturbed.

  • Automatically Reconnect Scanner and Device

    Do you lose your connection when the scanner is carried out of Bluetooth range from your tablet or smartphone? No problem! When the scanner is back in range, it will automatically reconnect to the right device.
