  • No update
  • Discuss RFID & PAYG - JohnMcKerrell
  • RFID - build an RFID system that logs when you arrive and leave, ideally will control the door too
  • A very basic system has been set up that will currently log people's visits only
  • PAYG - use said RFID system to allow people to pay for the time that they're in the space on a more fine-grained basis than the current £8/day, e.g. pay by the hour
  • Potentially should charge more for first hour, or perhaps charge for 2 hours straight away, or first hour free.
  • Potentially monthly charge for joining the scheme (acts as a minimum and helps to cover the free hour)
  • Daily/weekly email about activity
  • Have requested quote on an electrical door lock system
  • Agreed that we will require people to tap into the existing basic system to gather some information on habits
