Timer System

Hello, I am brand new to this venture. My Fiance and myself have being doing our homework. We are planning to open a small salon, approx 4-6 beds.

My question is, what kind of timer system should be used. I want to use computer based software to control everything of course. Everything I seem to find isnt exactly just computer based.

Is there anything like a powerbox that the bed would get plugged into then ran to the main computer system to be controlled and logged?

Im sure I sound like an idiot. This is the only thing that I just cant wrap my head around and get a good solid answer on. So here I am.. Thanks for all the help in advance!

Re: Timer System

One of our local tanning salons using something like im looking for. My fiance went in, paid and she logged her into the system and put like 3 min delay in. Enough time for her to lotion up and the power came on to the bed.

Then after it shuts off , it cant be turned back on till the lady at the desk inputs it back into the computer. This way its logged and employees cant be turning on beds for their friends either.

Just not sure what they use.

Re: Timer System

Do the TMAX timers that go behind the beds connect to computer to be controlled / logged and so forth?

How do these work?

Re: Timer System

they likely use a tmax manager. it sucks but about your only choice.

your computer talks to it and it talks to your rooms

very antiquated. buy used not new

Re: Timer System

4-6 to start. I own the building, my over head would be low. Im able to get some really nice commercial beds of different levels for a great cost. The only salon we have here has 8 beds. They are always busy, offer hardly any specials. It's not a get rich, it's another notch in the entrepreneur belt. We own rental property also. It would be a nice addition to an empty store front I own, that has apartments paying the mortgage. I mean, 4-6 beds will bring in money..

right?
