Lavu Customer Facing Display

The Lavu Customer Facing Display displays items, taxes, and check totals to the restaurant patron and can capture signatures for credit card transactions. You will need to have an additional iPad, connected to your network, with the Lavu Display App installed. You cannot run the Lavu Display App and the Lavu POS on the same iPad.



The following instructions will walk you through setting up the Customer Facing Display application:

You will first need to set the iPad to have a static IP address. Prior to doing this, you will need to know the DHCP range of your router. You will need to select an IP address that is outside of the range. If your default range is x.x.x.2 through x.x.x.254, you will need to know how to adjust it. If you do not know how, contact your Lavu Specialist or IT Professional to set this range for you.

If you have this information, please follow the instructions listed bellow.

Setting an iPad to a static IP address:

  1. Open up Settings on the iPad
  2. Tap on the Wi-Fi button on the left side menu settings
  3. You should be on your Lavu POS Wi-Fi network. To the right side of your network name you will see a blue circle with an “i” in it. Tap on it.
  4. Along the top you will see “DHCP.” Tap on “Static”, located to the right of this option.
  5. You will note that the fields below are blank. Tap on them to fill them in.
  6. At this point, you will need to know your routers DHCP range as previously mentioned. You will want to select an IP address that is outside that range.
  7. Enter in the IP address, Subnet Mask, router and DNS address. The router and DNS address will be the same as the one's pulled from the DHCP address of any device on the network.

  8. Now that these fields are filled in, tap on the “<Wi-Fi” button in the top left of the of the Wi-Fi settings section. This will save the info you just entered.
