Question about development of bluetooth app.
Hello, I have a question and could not find a clear answer so far.
My company is planning to develop an IPad app for usage in our lab. It should be possible to use a barcode or RFID scanner to sign the ipad on to a specific workstation. For example, i take my Ipad to a workstation, pick up the scanner and scan a barcode written on a machine, then continue my work. When finished, I would like to sign off the workstation by pressing a button on the ipad (or simply scan again). Now I know there are several bluetooth scanners on the market. With a android or windows pad it would probably be easy to connect the bluetooth device to the pad and scan away.
Is this also possible with the IOS sdk or is it completely forbidden to access devices other than Apple brand? It is clear that there does not exist such an option by default, the question is, is it even possible technically?
Thanks for the help
