Grand Master plan to replace the ABS box containing doorbot with something larger.

  • Move the PSU / Battery backup higher up the wall
  • Make wooden frame (to go over existing burglar alarm panel) to take ply/mdf engraved front
  • * Will also need to be clear of lightswitch on side of distribution board
  • * Needs to be over ribbon cable from external readers/led/button
  • * Needs to be able to pick up cables to door solenoid
  • LCD Display for basic status
  • Light switch (momentary push with indicator) for floodlight PSU - see below
  • Simple green / red open/close space buttons that also update spaceapi and coloured sign
  • excessive decoration / branding

Contraints

  • Needs to contain raspberry pi (network, power, sound) + relay board + interfaces to lock and external sensors.
  • external cabling MUST be neat.

Wishlist for mk2

  • RFID card reader behind
  • Status LEDs for various space things.
  • allow remote control / status out

Basic idea thrown to the list on https://groups.google.com/forum/#!topic/artifactory-core/a8n6lxrAz54

The external floods are being driven off an old HP DPS600PB Server PSU (http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1581061), which not only gives us 12v at 27A (remote start via shorting several pins together) but also 5v at 7A on standby. The latter would be ideal for the _beacon of guthrie st_ (fed via one of the relays) and the main PSU start/stop can be done via the PsON and PsKILL to ground, also via one of the relays.

Additional logic can be added to Doorbot (https://github.com/Perth-Artifactory/doorbot) to turn on the coloured sign on and annouce 'space open' to spaceapi by member hitting the 'open space' button and turning floodlights off (after a delay) if dark and closing space, (perhaps flash sign?) when they hit the 'close space' button.
