FAQ# 2280: Which barcode scanners are compatible with Lightspeed Retail POS?

Question

Which barcode scanners are compatible with Lightspeed Retail POS?

Answer

It will depend on whether you are using the Desktop/Laptop computer version or if you are using the Lightspeed Retail App for the iPad.

If you are using Windows or Mac OS X, Lightspeed recommends either the Honeywell Voyager 1200g (corded) or the Honeywell Voyager 1202g (cordless). Both models should be the USB interface

If you are using the Lightspeed Retail app for iPad then you would be looking at using either the Socket CHS Series 7 scanners or the Zebra CS4070 mobile scanner.
