    StevieG's Access Control Software



    Version: 1.01

    This software is intended to startup at car-pc launch, in between your front-end. You configure this to launch, then this is configured to start up your front-end software such as Centrafuse.

    The main feature of this application, is that it records audio from the microphone while it is on the access control screen. It is skinnable.

    I have used this to record my car being serviced to ensure, for my piece of mind, I know how it was being treated while out of my sight. You may think up more interesting uses for it!

    Full help file included plus MSI installer.

    No! They left it on ACC-ON through the entire service (glad my battery and car pc held out) so it was on the Access Control screen throughout the ENTIRE service.

    I was mainly worried about them slamming the doors, bumping it and then doing a hasty fix or taking it out for a razz. And of course taking the Car PC apart.

    Plus it looks pretty cool and stops them messing with it. I could have taken a fuse out, but I figure, why bother if I can record them.

    There should be a 'Register AutoITX' shortcut in the start menu next to AccessControl

    It's simple to get it to capture from one camera in the background. I would have done it, but as I was covertly fitting my webcam I rboke a chip off it! Doh! So left it as it was with the microphone in the A-pillar (usually used for voice control) and wrote the software to that.

    If you need video, let me know and I will adjust it.

    Thanks for everything.
