Best single board for a lock.
« on: May 12, 2020, 02:37:27 am »
We have been using a FOB lock in a commercial setting, about 100 daily visitors, each has his own FOB key. In the same box with the lock controller is our own mini computer that runs windows and acts as an intelligent bridge between the controller and the main server that is located offsite. Now obviously this is too complex and expensive. We could retire the door controller and drive the locks directly from a single board computer that also would connect to he main server through https. The question is what board to use.  It is not a medical or airplane device but still needs to be reasonably reliable. More than one failure a year unacceptable. Would a compute module raspberry pi do ? If not what would ? Currently the bridge is a dotnet core application, so the board has to support linux.
