Turning the Scanner ON

  1. First you will need to turn the scanner on - to do so you must push the button located on the bottom of the scanner's handle.

  2. Then, make sure the small switch above the LED indicator is twitched to “o” for operation mode.

  3. Next tap the orange trigger twice to turn the scanner on. The scanner will make a start up noise and an orange light will appear within the LED indicator on the back of the scanner. Your scanner is now on and ready to connect with your device. You will also know if the device is on if you click the trigger and can see the infrared scanner. DO NOT point the scanner at your face or eyes, or others and pull the trigger.

Connecting the Scanner to your Device:

  1. To connect your device you will need to be sure your scanner is on (please see instructions above), then you will need to go to your bluetooth settings within your iPhone to connect to the scanner.

  2. Click the “settings” app on your home screen

  3. Select “bluetooth”

  4. Turn ON your bluetooth and then search devices

  5. Select your scanners "Device Code". Your scanner has a white label on the side with its Device Code - example: R-A159CA.

  6. When you see “connected” next to the selected device you are successfully connected to your scanner

  1. Open the Entry Flow Pro App that is installed on your home screen of your device. If you do not see this or it is not pre-loaded on your device, you can visit

  3. Once you are on the scan screen you're ready to start scanning tickets!

  4. If an attendee does not have a printed / digital ticket you will need to search for them by name

  • From here you can begin scanning tickets.

  • You'll get the following responses that will flash upon scanning tickets:
