What elements should my POS hardware system consist of?
The setup of your hardware is entirely up to you as it should reflect the kind of experience that you’d like to create in your restaurant. At the basic level, you are most likely going to need a receipt printer, a cash drawer, a payment terminal, a kitchen printer, the Lightspeed Lite Server, an iPad stand, and an iPad!
Can I use my existing hardware with the Lightspeed Restaurant POS?
Yes, although there are ideal hardware setups that we recommend to use with Lightspeed Restaurant - we sell and support the hardware listed on this page. Keep in mind that not all hardware you can use is necessarily built to serve as point of sale hardware or to work in a restaurant environment, which likely means we do not support it. For anything not listed on this page, please consult our help center or speak to one of our specialists.
Can I mix and match different hardware brands?
Of course! It’s actually unlikely you’ll be able to avoid mixing several brands in your setup since certain brands are industry leaders in a particular piece of hardware. Brands intended for restaurants or bars hardware are more likely to take restaurant-specific concerns into consideration (like appearance and design), as well as integrations with printers and payment processing hardware.
Are Lightspeed’s terminals and accessories durable?
Restaurant hardware needs to be particularly sensitive to certain elements such as spills and how it reacts to impact. The hardware we sell was conceived especially for a restaurant environment. After you’ve bought any of our hardware, Lightspeed offers technical support about setup or functionality to all customers. We’ll be here if you have any questions about setup or functionality.
Will Lightspeed provide support for my hardware-related questions?
Absolutely. Our technical support representatives are available 24/7 to answer questions about Lightspeed-supported hardware.
Can I use the same hardware for both my bar or restaurant and my retail store?
Some hardware pieces are definitely transferable between a bar, restaurant or retail store, such as certain types of printers and iPad POS stands, while others are much more specific to the environment you’re creating. Before setting anything up, make sure to verify the intended use of any piece of hardware with one of our representatives.
