BuildingReports® is pleased to announce the general availability of the Socket Mobile S800 1D Imager Barcode Scanner following the Beta release. The Bluetooth® device is configured to pair with supported mobile devices equipped with pair with Android and iOS devices equipped with BuildingReports’ ScanSeries® application.

Helping to minimize data entry, the Socket Mobile S800 1D Imager Barcode Scanner pairs to smartphones while remaining small, thin and easy to use and is optimized for attaching to mobile devices, enabling one-hand operation. In beta testing, users noted some of the advantages including:
  • Extends battery life of paired mobile devices versus using the mobile device’s camera for scanning.
  • Faster scan speed than mobile devices, which reduces inspection times.
  • More cost-effective for companies that employ a BYOD (bring your own device) model for mobile phones.

The new scanner is available immediately from BuildingReports with two options:

  • A standalone SocketScan S800 1D Imager Barcode Scanner (iOS Certified; Android compatible) for $249.00;
  • Or a SocketScan S800 1D Bluetooth Scanner Kit which includes a special 3D-printed clip for the scanner for $289.00.

The special clip for the scanner is perfect for attaching the device to smoke poles or other equipment to scan out-of-reach items. And, because it’s lightweight and less expensive, there is less risk of damaging a more expensive mobile device on the job.

ScansSeries versions 2.9.12 or higher for iOS devices and 1.1.121 or higher for Android are compatible for use with the new device.
