Some Cash Drawers are able to communicate (to the computer) that they are open or closed. When properly configured, Keystroke displays the DRAWER IS OPEN message when the drawer is open. When combined with the Run with Drawer Open General Security Level, Keystroke can be set to wait until the drawer is closed before continuing, which may help deter employee theft. Once the drawer is closed the message disappears and the next sales transaction may be entered.
Note: If for any reason the drawer status is not received, Keystroke will continue without displaying the Drawer is Open message.
