In version 2 you selected the room to add the equipment and the scanner was on the same screen. Version 3 requires selection of area, then the type, and then tapping the Add to List takes you to the scanner. Once you scan and it queries the database you have to select the piece of equipment.
For scan mode, is it possible to eliminate selecting the equipment type and just allowing the scanner to scan and acknowledge what it scanned? The equipment database should be able to identify it. I know the selection mode is to allow for querying the database to pick from a list but the scanning should be able to skip past those options and automatically add to the list.
