We have existing access-control system for bikes. This access-control system is enclosed in metal box and controls access to bike room.
Relies on following technologies:
- Android processor
- Video and audio
- Card reader (RFID, mag stripe, chip)
- Electric strike for door entry
When a client slides their card, the info relays to our backend, which verifies client and activates electric strike to open door.
Verifies via RFID stickers on bikes that:
1. Bike / client identification
2. Bike has parked in bike room
3. Alerts if bike leaves room without client entering again to retrieve bike

We will be using El Monte and Covina mini moving forward (although Covina main kiosk has internal photos to look at, same as El Monte only the box is larger)

We currently have a functioning hardware / firmware / software solution. HOWEVER, we are using a third-party for the hardware / firmware, and considering licensing the software from same company. I'm considering creating my own hardware / firmware and separately considering my own software.
The three options are this:
1. Use my existing company (purchase hardware / firmware and license software)
2. Create my own hardware / firmware (then I'll need a continuous team for upgrades, bugs, crashes, etc) and license software
3. Create my own hardware / firmware and software (I am open to your team for both).
