Recommended Hardware, Peripherals & Computer Specs

We’ve put together a guide to help you understand the recommended specs for using Geelus. At the bottom of the page, you’ll find a guide document with detailed specs. 

Although Geelus is compatible with a wide range of devices and tablets, each type of hardware and OS has different compatibility with peripheral hardware. This includes thermal printers, scanners and cash drawers. Before you make a purchase, please carefully check the guideline below. This will help to ensure everything will work together.

Computers and Tablets

Geelus is designed to run on PC and Mac. This means it runs on most computers. However in order to communicate with peripherals like printers and cash drawer Windows operating system is required. At home you can use your Mac or PC to connect to your business but in store, you need a Windows PC.

Peripherals

Peripherals are things like receipt printers, cash drawers and scanners; in other words, items that you use with your computer or tablet to enhance functionality. Like with computers and tablets, Geelus has some recommendations for peripherals that will help to ensure your system works smoothly.

Peripherals
Touch ScreenNot necessary but nice to have.
Any size or brand of touch-screen will work. Choose a model that fits your price range and environment.
Screen size of over 20 inches is recommended, however Geelus works on any size of display.

To best manage the space, All in one touch computers
recommended.

Mouse and KeyboardUsing a keyboard is necessary to get the most out of Geelus.
Receipt PrinterReceipt printer is used to print receipt for customers and store.

Cash DrawersAll the RJ11 or RJ12 cash drawers work as long as your printer has the RJ port.

Recommended: any RJ cash drawers.

Bar-code ScannersAs a general rule, if you can plug a bar-code scanner into your computer, and scan a bar-code
to Notepad, it should work with Geelus, as they work like a keyboard (scanning a bar-code is the
same as typing some numbers/letters – just really quick)
