Gatekeeper Hardware Options

Gatekeeper can be downloaded and installed on your hardware for free. Alternatively, you can hire the complete setup from TryBooking. 

Each computer is connected (via cable) to a barcode hand scanner. We offer scanners that can read paper tickets only, as well as scanners that can read both paper tickets & tickets displayed on a screen (linear scanner), depending on your needs.

If you wish to purchase your own barcode scanners for repeated use, we recommend these options as a starting point:

Datalogic Quickscan Desk D2330 L, hand-held laser barcode scanner, black case, USB Cable and Hands-free Stand Included (Paper scanner only)


For Linear barcode scanner (paper + screens) try these 2 options




TIP:  If you purchase scanners, they may need to be setup to include a CR/LF at the end of each scan. Please consult the scanners' instruction manual. Usually, it's just a matter of scanning a couple of barcodes in the manufacturer's booklet to program the hand scanner to include a CR/LF at the end of the scan.
