I've to start operating route pinball a few weeks ago.
I'm brand new doing it but it didn't take me long to realize that I need something that didn't exist for new and can be useful for a lot of operators.
My pinball is located around 250km away from home and since I'm currently looking if it's worth operating it and can't go empty the machine every week, I started to develop a device that.
In fact, I will add a small device to the pinball and every day, that device will send automated information to a website/email and from distance, I will know exactly how many coins have been added to the machine and this to every day even every hour if I want.
I think with the help of some programmers, I can possibly expand the device to do test routine and send the result from distance. This means that has operator, you can track if one of your pinballs is having a problem before going to see it.
Is that something that can be interested you? let me know!
