Arduino and Pi Users
If you are currently using Arduino or Pi based controllers, utilizing our FX line of controllers (FX450 and F350) becomes a very easy business decision. Our systems and products reduce the time your staff spends cobbling electronics and assembly, and increases reliability.
In the hobby/Arduino paradigm, 2 hours of tech time plus the cost of the components from Sparkfun or Adafruit (2*30/hr) + $30 in parts = $90. The FX350 is $90, and has more capability and increased reliability due to less manual connections, professional engineering practices, and the construction in an ISO 9001 factory, in the US.
We do not use or recommend the use of Pi controllers. They are the epitome of hobby hardware and do not meet our quality standards. In cases where that capability is required, we utilize commercially available embedded PCs (usually Atom based) to fill these roles. ;They are far more reliable, commoditized, and can be used in much of the same way as Raspberry Pi controllers.
PLCs are great! If you are running a factory! In all seriousness, yes, PLCs are used frequently in entertainment venues, and they have been hyped as the high end control mechanism, but they are very generic controllers. They work best for simple logic, and control, and timing. Escape rooms have a few other requirements such as audio, lighting, and video which most PLCs (yes, there are some very expensive systems that will handle these types of peripherals) cannot handle. Also, many may have issues with interfacing with more complicated RFID type communications and logic.
There are few experts in the escape room industry who do a good job of integrating all of these components in creating custom solutions for their customers.
Escape Room Techs delivers more capable, quality solutions, at a lesser price point.
