Requirements for the Ultimate Access Control System

Add and edit to this page to accelerate the discussion planned during the Access Control unconference G+ hangout. Spec out the ultimate requirements set for this system so we can build it together in August. When we get on the hangout, we can talk about each of these in turn, and make it a fun discussion.

Just EDIT THIS PAGE to add your own!

Key Requirements:

  1. Entirely open source framework from hardware to software (All OSI layers are open and free.)
  2. Physical construction with commodity components which are findable in any community.
  3. Ideal cost less than $250 per door.
  4. Member access to space is linked to member being current on payments of dues (if member not current, door does not open -- and presents a payment option?)

Configurable, creative requirements:

  1. Door transparently broadcasts users of door in chosen mediums.
  2. Doors can be used as doorbells (see Upgrade the Access Control System (Case in Bucketworks))

The notebook section provides a way for you to store and share information with your group members. With the book feature you can:

  • Add book pages and organize them hierarchically into different books.
  • Attach files to pages to share them with others.
  • Track changes that others have made and revert changes as necessary.
  • Archive books that are no longer of interest to the group. Archived books can be reactivated later if needed.

The revisions let you track differences between multiple versions of a post.
