Barcode scanning with camera on iOS

Last Modified: 2015-05-18
I have question on scanning barcode from camera in custom enterprise application. We are
developing an application for our enterprise using Xamarin which will
run on ios 8 for iPAD mini. All out ipads will be locked down through
apple configurator which will not allow users to use camera. However, we
have a requirement to do barcode scanning from application for which
camera is required. Just want to know if there is any possibility where
camera feature is locked down but we can still use it for barcode
reading from custom application we are developing(May be using certain
kind of access code or password?). I want to know how can we possibly achieve this or is there any workaround.

Thanks a lot,
