We have patrons scan their ids as they enter to keep track of statistics. I've created some software that does this, with a regular barcode reader, but the problem is the window has to be in focus the whole time and the terminal is used by a security guard who has to do other things at the same time. So, I need some kind of "hands-off" solution and preferably something involving the least amount of work from me...

I have an older Intelliscanner Mini that would fit the bill ... The earlier model holds about 300 barcodes before you have to dump it; I don't know what the memory limits of the current one are.
You're supposed to use their software, but from what I remember, I was able to get it to dump to other programs (it acted as a keyboard, typing in the values, with line returns between each value).
Looking at their website, it looks like if you want to export to other software, they recommend the 'Intelliscanner SOHO' (more expensive) model:
