|-||+||If you have a Raspberry Pi or NUC with a connected scanner, you can easily share it to your network.|
|-||The Raspberry Pi is extremely suitable to serve all kinds of handy things on your home network that usually would require a server. This is mainly due to its very low power consumption, but also because it is very small and can be hidden in a lot of places. For example, if you own a USB scanner you would have to connect it to the system you'd currently like to scan on. With the Raspberry Pi you can have your scanner on a central place and use it to scan from anywhere within your network. Anywhere outside of your network would work as well, but is doesn't make much sense as you'd have to place the documents on the scanner remotely ;-)||+|
