You can connect your YardsTech® Scales to Stockbook in a couple of different ways:

  1. Connect via WiFi - this is the preferred method to connect the YardsTech® Scales to Stockbook and if you are connecting an EID reader directly to your YardsTech® Scales, then it is the only way.
  2. Connect via Bluetooth - you can use this method if you do not have an reader EID reader connected to your YardsTech® Scales. Method 1 is still the preferred method.


NOTE : you can ZERO the YardsTech® Scales from within Live Entry by clicking on the Scale Weight box. It may take a couple of seconds to zero out.
