Just to add another observation to WashGreenSaveGreen's & our king koin remote setup. If the changer is not a rear load, to be able to get the audit remotely in an instant way ... helps some of us security wise in my opinion. In other words, the changer will tend to be open fewer times & for less time when it is open.
Having a thru the wall rear load changer kind of nullifies the security part of the equation. For us a potential drawback consideration to a rear load through the wall is that it is takes up wall space both in the front of wall & the back of the wall. Not to mention the messier large opening required in potentially an eight inch concrete block wall like ours.
I would think this remote technology would also enhance bill to bill breaker machine audit processes, refrigerated pop & candy inventory's audit processes as well. Soap machine filling could also have a slight gain if it was economical enough to set up.
Hi I have a standard change maker with the KEEPTRACK.NET add on. They told me I was the 3rd one to install in the county and I have used it for a couple of years. I love it! I do use it daily to track volume in the store. It isn't a perfect way to do it but I can say its within 5% 90% of the time in my store. It sends me a txt message to my phone if there is a tamper or if the machine goes down. You can also set parameters for txting when levels in the hoppers reach a certain level. I think it cost about $700 at the time to ad it to the machine I had but to me it's worth every penny.
