Hola buenas:

Deseamos utilizar Ventor para un Odoo 12 V.Community, en tabletas Samsung Galaxy Tab Active2 ( con Android 9), podrian indicar posibles modelos de escanner bluetooth probados ?.


Hello Maximo,
we use it with some no-name Chinese scanners in our office. Ventor should work with any barcode scanner if it can successfully connect to your device and scan a barcode in third-party apps (notepad, browser, or any).
Don’t forget to activate a setting “external barcode scanner”

I have a problem on my device, when i using Bluetooth scanner is work and can show the information instantly , but when i using the internal scanner, it doesn’t work instantly


When we scan our products with our Chinese handheld with buildin scanner, it doesn’t work. For instance, if we scan the EAN barcode of a product in ‘Quick info’ we get the message ‘No items found for barcode: …..’.

External barcode setting is ‘on’ in the system settings. We can scan products properly if we tap ‘Product’ first in ‘Quick info’. A text input field appears than and after scanning the barcode it searchs the product.
