  1. The scanner will play several tones and then will automatically turn off.
  2. Press the small power button until the scanner turns on (you'll hear 2 beeps) and scan this barcode to put the scanner in iOS Mode (make sure you hear 3 beeps after scanning this barcode):
  3. After you hear the 3 beeps, go to iPad → Settings → Bluetooth and tap on Socket CHS. Tap Pair and wait for it to connect.6Open Bindo POS and wait 3-5 seconds. The scanner will connect automatically.
