Kiosk Pro Basic, Plus, and Enterprise can connect and print to any AirPrint-enabled printer.
Enterprise adds the ability to print to an AirPrint printer in Automatic Kiosk Mode, allowing you to preselect the printer to be used and number of copies to print, to block printing on specific pages, and to hide the standard iOS print dialog.
Kiosk Pro Enterprise also supports a number of thermal kiosk printers from Star Micronics and Custom America.
Star Micronics printers that support line-mode printing & raster printing are supported; this includes the TSP650BTi (which connects via Bluetooth), the TSP700ii & TSP800ii (both of which connect via standard Ethernet cabling to a wireless router), and the TSP143U. Our current recommendation is the TSP143U (model number 39472310), which physically connects to and powers the iPad using the Lightning-USB cable included with the iPad, significantly simplifying deployment and troubleshooting.Kiosk Pro Enterprise supports Star Micronics thermal printers that support line-mode printing & raster printing. Kiosk Pro has been tested with the TSP650BTi (which connects via Bluetooth), the TSP700ii & TSP800ii (both of which connect via standard Ethernet cabling to a wireless router), and the TSP143U. For more information about specific printers, you can visit the Star Micronics website.

Kiosk Pro Enterprise currently supports several magnetic stripe card readers, specifically:
The IDTech card readers are available as both unencrypted readers (that return the information from a card swipe as plain text) and encrypted readers that can be encrypted with keys from various payment processors. The MagTek iDynamo is only available as an encrypted reader.Learn More
Kiosk Pro Enterprise includes APIs for barcode and QR code scanning from a variety of sources, including Aila scanners, the device’s native cameras, and, in certain situations, Bluetooth-connected scanners.
Aila’s line of kiosk and handheld scanners for iOS supports 1D and 2D barcode scanning, including UPC-EAN, QR, Code 128, Code 39, and Interleaved 2 of 5. These scanners use a mirrored camera system for quick barcode capture and recognition and the audio jack for communication with the app.
Since Bluetooth scanners are seen by the iPad as an alternate keyboard, no on-screen keyboard will be shown when focus enters text fields, which means that this type of scanner is not recommended for projects where visitors would need to manually enter text. These scanners can also interfere with other types of inputs (for example, dropdown menus).Learn More
You can connect Kiosk Pro to an external monitor wirelessly using AirPlay over WiFi to an Apple TV or through a wired connection using one of Apple's Digital AV Adapters that connect directly via HDMI cable.
All versions of the app support native iOS screen mirroring, but the 4:3 aspect ratio of the iPad prevents the content being mirrored on the external screen from being shown full screen. Black bars will be shown on the sides (and, depending on the monitor used, possibly on the top and bottom) of the external display to fill the remaining space.
