Before the software and PocketScan can communicate, the operating system of your device and PocketScan need to get to know each other. This process is called “pairing”.
On each operating system the pairing process has the same basic steps:
- Set PocketScan into pairing mode by pressing the power button on the bottom of PocketScan for 4-6 seconds until the blue and the red LEDs are both flashing
- Open the Bluetooth settings of the operating system and scan for available devices
- Select PocketScan from the list of available devices and wait until the operating system finishes the pairing process. PocketScan is now visible in the list of paired devices.
Once PocketScan is paired the software knows to which device to connect to. The software will automatically try to connect to the paired PocketScan.
