- +If you have a Raspberry Pi or NUC with 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 ​server. This is mainly due to its very low power consumptionbut 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 ;-)+
