If you'd like staff to be alerted of orders in the kitchen or bar area, StoreHub can support kitchen buzzers as long as they have an RJ-11 cable.
**Note: This feature only works with printers which have a port for the RJ-11 cable.
Connect the Buzzer
When a buzzer is used, it will need to be plugged in to the port at the back where the cash drawer usually is. This means that you cannot use the cash drawer AND the buzzer on the same printer. It's advisable to get another printer for the kitchen and connect the buzzer to it, and use the cash drawer for the receipt printer near the payment counter.
Enabling the Buzzer to be used with your printer
After plugging in the buzzer to the back of your printer, you'll need to do a few steps in the StoreHub app first.
1. Go to the StoreHub app > Menu > Settings > Printer > Search Printers > Find the printer your Buzzer is connected to and tap it.
2. Toggle the Buzzer ON (orange in colour).
3. That's it! So when the order is saved, the Buzzer should make a sound and alert the kitchen or bar staff to make the order :)
