I am project managing the development of a web app that needs to interface with a wireless bar code scanner.
Ideally I do not want to have to have a local host computer on site for the scanners to connect to / use as a gateway. I don't know if they exist but I was hoping to find a scanner that would connect to the internet via wifi and send the number it scanned to a specific API/WebService or that my webapp could poll the device for scanned codes.
To put it more concisely can you recommend a wireless barcode scanner that can directly interface with a web based application?
Connects to wifi directly with no gateway device needed.
Interfaces with a webapp via a exposed web service or API.
Expense is not an issue, device must be supported as it will form part of a critical government system.
Sorry if I have been vague, happy to answer any questions.
