Integrating a Webcam Into Your Kiosk Application

Integrate popular webcams into your kiosk application with KioskSimple
Add support for modern webcams to your kiosk application

Adding a webcam to your kiosk application can go a long way to improve the security of your kiosk.  In the case of disputed credit card charges (i.e. chargebacks) it can help to have a picture of the customer swiping the card in question.  One of our main goals with KioskSimple was to make it really easy for kiosk application developers to integrate popular kiosk devices, like webcams, into their kiosks.  The KioskSimple developer API supports integrating a webcam into your website and we have code examples to get you started.

You’ll want to ask your developers to review our webcam JavaScript code examples.

Integrate modern webcams into your website or .NET WPF kiosk applicationWith just a few easy steps your kiosk application will be snapping photos:

  1. Direct your developers to review our webcam JavaScript code examples.  Our API supports .NET WPF for use in native Windows applications and JavaScript for use in websites.
  2. Download a copy of the KioskSimple free demo and the Webcam Plugin (the plugin is downloaded from the KioskSimple configuration tool not the website and is a free trial also).
  3. Make a few code changes to your kiosk application to call the KioskSimple API and now your kiosk is taking photos!

We’ve experienced the pleasure of using a good 3rd party API and the pain of using a crummy one.  KioskSimple is a kiosk software product written by kiosk application developers for kiosk application developers and we feel your pain.  This is why we set out to make the KioskSimple API developer-friendly and provided current and easy to follow JavaScript code examples.  If the code examples aren’t enough we’re also happy to provide responsive and helpful developer support if you ever need to contact us.
