Bar code scanning w/Ipad problems

We are trying to get some barcode based inventory control systems in place.

The problem we are having is that in our warehouse there are always a number of bar codes closely space to one another.  It is very difficult to select and scan the correct bar code because filemaker just grabs the first bar code that it 'sees' once the camera is activated.  Is there a way to script a trigger button that opens the camera but does not input the barcode until the button is pushed from within the camera view?

Something like a hand held bar code scanner works.  The bar code is not scanned until the trigger is pulled. This would have to happen from within the camera view so that I know I am pointed at the correct bar code on the page.
