Q: What are the different modes for the Socket scanner and which one should I use with ACME?
A: , that device can be programmed for one of two modes depending on which application you are using:
1. ACME Sales (POS) and "Keyboard Mode." This is the default mode for the Socket scanner when it comes out of the box. When a Socket scanner is paired with an iPad in this mode, it can scan a membership card and automatically enter the value into our Membership search field which can save users time and prevent typos when searching for a member.
2. ACME Access Control (AC) and "iOS App Mode." When a Socket scanner is configured for iOS Mode, it will work as an extension of our access control application to scan, validate, and check in tickets.
Note: This mode will only work with the ACME AC application. ACME Sales does not support external ticket scanning at this time.
