Set Up and Manage Devices
Every restaurant needs to set up one Hub, a device that stores the menu, orders, and settings. When the Hub is ready, you can connect secondary Client devices to it for order taking.

The Hub Device
The Hub stores the restaurant’s menu, orders, settings, and more. Ambur automatically sets the device you create your account on as the Hub.
Clients are other devices in the restaurant that use Ambur. Clients connect to the Hub, so any changes made on the Hub reflect across all devices.
- Tap 'I'm an existing customer'.
- Select 'Connect to a hub'.
- Tap the Hub to connect to it.
Give a name to each device in the restaurant, manage which printers they use for receipts, and more.
- Tap 'Management' and select 'Devices'.
- Choose a device to edit.
The device currently being used is marked as ‘current’ and the Hub is marked as ‘Hub’.
- Change the device settings as desired.
