Note: Check-In software will NOT work with Chrome OS computers
*The iOS check-in app uses Apple AirPrint which can only access the wireless or Bluetooth printers listed below.
We recommend one of the wireless Brother printers, since they can be used with the iOS Check-in app and web-based check-in. You will need the continuous length label roll (item number DK-2205). We do not sell printers or label rolls so you will need to purchase them locally or online.
Dymo 30857 (2 1/4 x 4 labels)Brother 2205 (2.4 in x 100 ft role)GoDex DT4/DT4x (4x3 labels or 3x2 labels) (Not 2.25 x 3 portrait style)
(NOTE: any labels should be roughly 2.25 in wide by 4 in length)
Use the offsets found at Settings > Check-In > under each station to align labels as needed.
Almost all high quality barcode scanners that connect to your computer will work with Check-in. Cheap ones don't scan as consistently and can have compatibility issues, but may work. To read barcodes saved on mobile phones, simple laser barcode scanners won't work. You need an Optical (CMOS/CCD) based scanner also known as Linear Imager barcode scanner. 2D (2 dimensional) is not necessary, but will work and may even work better because it can read the barcode in either direction.
One model that has been tested to be effective (including reading barcodes saved on cell phones) is the Honeywell 1400g.
