With the kiosk timer internet cafe software you can lock a terminal against unauthorized usage. The terminal is released by throwing in a coin. Furthermore special Windows key combinations remain deactivated, for example CTRL+ALT+DEL (task manager) or ALT+TAB, the task bar, etc. As soon as a customer throws in money the station will unlock and a small status window displays the time still remaining. You can enter in the configuration program how much time per credit is scored. The connection of coin and bill acceptor is carried out via our CASH-Interface or with the coin validator pc adapter. As long as the user has credits he can surf thru the internet, write e-mails, or use installed programs like MEGABONUS, terminal games or others. With the start of MEGABONUS the kiosk timer submits the kiosk credits to the game. Finishing the game, remaining credits are submitted again to the kiosk timer. The customer has the possibility of creating a user account. When a customer logged in with his user account he can stop his session at any time and login later again. Remaining Credits are stored on his account. The user accounts work also in a network, so the customer can login on every PC in the network where the kiosk timer is installed. The kiosk timer internet cafe software supports also smartcards. The user account is stored on a smartcard and the customer can log in to the system by inserting the smartcard. The terminal will lock automatically if all credits are used up. When there is a remaining time of 60 seconds or less left, the display changes to red. Also a time information window is shown for 5 seconds and signals to insert more coins. During the last 15 seconds of time credits there is also a signal sound. With the kiosk timer internet cafe software it is also possible to change directly the most important safety attitudes of the Internet Explorer. The user has no more access to the browser attitudes.
