IP cameras and POS system

Recommended Posts

Hi. First can you supply make of nvr ..... some say pos ready but are not 

some cheap pos recorders only replace camera description text .... so only give you room for item and price  ..... not full shop recipe 

 

if if you don’t have back office then it’s going to be from each register.

what local network do you have between the registers

I have the Alibi Ali-NVR5332P.  I've attached (attachment in next message) the relevant part of the NVR Manual and also a structure of how the Passport is set up.  I can go thru either the com 9 of client and com 16 of combo - both of which are USB's and require a plug and play USB to serial or utilitize the DMZ port of the secondary router (attached here) to access the information.  This is all I know so far and don't know if its relevant or not.  Thanks again

Hi. Thank you for diagrams...... I've got a headache now 😀

 

How many terminals do you have (registers) and what is the distance between cash registers and NVR 

 

two options I see ..... First is rs232 (db9) to USB .....for com port

second is network from switch before terminals .... But I think that will give you more recipe detail than what you need and we have had problems with handshake in the past that way. 

USB to serial  is the stable option ..... Mirror recipe printer data on serial.

 

usb serial there are cheap and expensive ..... Use the program ones ...... Any power loss com port stays the same .... You don't want it to move every time system is down.

 

i have always used moxa equipment.

 

i can send you a moxa for free if you want to try this way

I HAVE 2 TERMINALS AND APPROXIMATELY 40FT FROM TERMINALS TO NVR

two options I see ..... First is rs232 (db9) to USB .....for com port

second is network from switch before terminals .... But I think that will give you more recipe detail than what you need and we have had problems with handshake in the past that way.

THE COM PORT LOCATION IS FIXED THRU THE TERMINAL BUT I'VE HEARD THAT MOXA ADAPTERS ARE TRUE PLUG AND PLAY AND NO DRIVERS REQUIRED AS THE WINDOWS PORTION OF THE TERMINAL IS COMPLETELY LOCKED - EVEN AUTOMATIC DRIVERS CANNOT BE INSTALLED.

IS THE IDEA TO GO USB TO SERIAL, THEN SERIAL TO ETHERNET TO THE NVR AND COPY SAME FOR 2ND TERMINAL?

i have always used moxa equipment.

THIS WOULD BE GREAT!  SHOULD I PM YOU WITH MY ADDRESS?

I HAVE A 3RD PARTY BACK OFFICE SOFTWARE - CAN THIS BE USED TO OBTAIN THE CORRECT IP ADDRESS AND PORT NUMBER PER TERMINAL?  IF NOT, HOW WOULD YOU RECOMMEND I GO ABOUT IT TO OBTAIN IT?

Also I have been told to utilize Gilbarco's back office to identify the IP addresses but I do not have the back office software installed anywhere.

 

Sorry I read that as no back office ...... Just standalone cash registers.

 

which software are you using .... Something like Orical or Torex 

 

yes this makes it easier as all cash registers will be on a switch to back office

so you only need to find each terminal IP and port ...... If your thermal keep NVR on epson print

I CAN LOOK AT CONFIRM.  DO YOU NEED A SPECIAL PORT LIKE DMZ FROM SWITCH OR ANY ONE (OR TWO?) AVAILABLE PORT(S) IS SUFFICIENT?

so you only need to find each terminal IP and port ...... If your thermal keep NVR on epson print

THAT HAS BEEN THE CHALLENGE TO GET THE IP AND PORT PER TERMINAL.

THEY ARE THERMAL RECEIPT PRINTERS SO SELECT EPSON AND ONCE I HAVE THE IP AND PORT THAT IS ALL TO INTEGRATE?

Hi. Wells Fargo platform 

 

you out should not need any equipment.... You should be able to have all data sent via registers switch.

dont try to open any ports yourself on that software.....as you know there tech support is expensive if you get it wrong.

call them and ask for the cash terminals IP and ports.

as long as your NVR is on the same network .... You then only need to follow your NVRs manual.

Just looked at there software.  There is a direct stream from each terminal for any network device even iPhone.

so you just need from there tech ...... Ports .... IP ..... Recipe stream and enter that into NVR settings

NealShell,

How do you get time synchronized, both video scene stored at NVR and the time of evidence of sales for the cash register or credit card approval ???
