Basically at the moment I have been having to put PC’s outdoors in the morning and bring them in at night. This solution gets round that as they will be permanently fixed and more a case of grabbing the cash at night without having to here the “Ayo!” of people calling me to set the timer on the server.
These are a perfect home business because if your reading this blog you have internet, which also means you can grab a Peso-peso add in a PC and find a location for local people to use it. At worst its going to give you free internet every month in the amount it makes but in reality this is a turning point as local kids are used to paying P1 at a time these machines will give 5 minutes for P1 but also have a second slot for P5 to give half hour play. Which sort of makes it more likely to grab plenty of foot traffic on a regular basis even if its people just checking Facebook for 5minutes it soon adds up.
I would advise considering using them as a small investment business that you can do from home as once setup its fairly easy to maintain. I am also adding bolts to the back with a metal plate so its literally bolted to the wall to stop theft. Access is at the back so doing that will also remove any risk of the computer being stolen by a forced lock.
Power wise the buttons on the top control the PC front button allowing an almost instant timeout on completion of payment but also means starting up is just pushing the green or red button.
