The back of each Vocera device has a label that includes barcodes for the serial number and MAC address of the device.
In addition, an inventory sheet with barcodes of the devices' serial numbers is included with every Vocera device pack. You can use a handheld barcode scanner to scan the device labels or the inventory sheets. When you scan a Vocera device barcode label using a scanner with keyboard emulation, the data scanned appears at the cursor as if you had typed it from the keyboard. This helps you avoid typographical errors in entering serial numbers and MAC addresses.
When you receive a shipment of devices from Vocera, it is much easier to scan barcodes for the device serial numbers from the inventory sheet that accompanies the Vocera device pack. The inventory sheet includes barcodes for the serial numbers of all devices packed in the box.

Individual devices are shipped in a plastic clamshell that also has barcode labels. Before opening the clamshell, you can scan the barcodes of the MAC address and serial number from the back of the clamshell.
