Pair a Bluetooth Barcode Scanner with your Computer

Read below to learn how to pair a CS4070 Bluetooth scanner to your Windows or Macintosh computer. You can use a barcode scanner to manage your vaccine inventory in PCC EHR.

For information on how to use immunization barcodes with PCC EHR, read the Use a Barcode Scanner to Manage article.

Pair With A Single Workstation: When PCC tested the CS4070, we found that once a bluetooth scanner has been paired with a device (e.g. a laptop), the scanner remembers that device. Pairing it with a second workstation can result in the scanner attempting to pair with both workstations, or becoming confused about which workstation to pair with if both are in the same vicinity.

Manual Available Online: A CS4070 scanner comes with a Quick Reference Guide, but you may find you want more in-depth information about how to use the CS4070. The manual is available online from the manufacturer.

Instructions for Windows

Click the Windows Icon in the Task Bar

Open “Bluetooth and other device settings”

Wake up the Scanner

Put the Scanner in Discovery Mode

Hold the Bluetooth button on the scanner until it beeps. It is now in discovery mode and ready to pair. If you do not pair the scanner within two minutes, it will beep again and turn off Bluetooth. If this happens, simply hold the Bluetooth button again to re-activate discovery mode.

Search for Bluetooth Devices with your Computer


Select the CS4070

You will see any number of Bluetooth-enabled devices in this list. Some you may recognize, some you may not. Any device within range will appear, which can include Fitbits, wireless mice and keyboards, phones, and other electronics. Select the CS4070. Your computer may recognize it by name, or it may simply recognize it as a “Keyboard”.

Scan the PIN

Your computer will ask you for a PIN number. Use the scanner to scan the barcodes that correspond to the numbers on pages 10 and 11 of the Quick Reference Guide that came with your scanner (or pages C-9 and C-10 of the online manual). Remember to scan the “Enter” barcode at the end.




Your scanner is now paired with your PC, and will work with PCC EHR.

Instructions for Mac

Use the Apple menu to open System Preferences, and then click on the Bluetooth icon.

Unpairing a Scanner

Bluetooth devices can only be paired with one computer at a time. If you need to pair a scanner with a new computer, you will need to unpair it from the original workstation. Simply go to your list of Bluetooth devices, right click on the CS4070, and click “uninstall”.
