Guest I am looking for a bar code scanner, printer solution for our warehouse that we can use with the iPad or iPhone. We are a restoration company with consumables and equipment that is checked in and out.

We have several cordless scanners that can communicate with Apple products like the Motorola LS4278. This gun-style scanner can communicate via Bluetooth to the host device transmitting data as text input. Printing, however, will be difficult as the Apple devices do not support an open printing protocol that would work with any of the common label printers. We could get a network capable printer like the Zebra ZM400 and with a print management tool like NiceLabel Portal the Apple device could funnel print jobs to the Zebra printer.
