Camera QR Scanner

The Camera QR Scanner node is used to open the camera view finder and scan for QR codes. It uses a Video node to display the camera stream.

When a QR code has been successfully identified, the node will send a Scan Successful event and the decoded string, otherwise Scan Failed. In this node, the decoding happens in real time, meaning if the QR code is not visible anymore the node will send an event to indicate that the scanning failed.

Front FacingA boolean that decides if the front facing camera should be used (default) or the user facing came.
Max Scans Per SecondThe number of scans per second the scanner will do to find QR codes. Lowering this number may improve performance if needed. Note that changing this number after triggering Start will have no effect.
