About the Knox Capture SDK

The Knox Capture SDK helps mobile application developers turn their enterprise Android smartphones or tablets into powerful barcode scanners.

With simple-to-use APIs, developers can access device cameras to read 1D and 2D barcode symbologies, display important scanning information in the camera UI, and push captured data to a user’s business productivity app or web browser.


Before you begin with app development using the Knox Capture SDK, you’ll need to ensure that you have the following:
