    A data logging system that allows record keeping of entries along with the ability to store credit. An Android application is an integrated part of the design that allows the user to stay notified.
What is the unmet need in society that your idea will fulfill ?
    Personnel entering the premises is usually not monitored. Also, students may at times buy things from cafeteria on a loan which in turn becomes a source of loss. Implementation of this project makes sure the record of entrance and cafeteria billing is dealt without manual data logging.
Who needs it ? How many would benefit ?
   The project is applicable in companies, institutions, classrooms, universities, cafeterias, housing schemes, etc. Basically anywhere where there is a need to keep record of entrance and credit keeping is required.
How will the solution works
    The project consists of two devices. One that will be installed for entry purposes to keep record. And the second one which is installed at the cafeteria to allow transaction using the Smart Card. The Smart Card uses RFID card for unique identification and both the devices are linked with a local database where required information about the personnel is stored. A notification is generated and sent to the Android application whenever the Smart Card is used.
Who are your competitors ? How is your solution different
    Entrance based systems and data logging projects are key competitors. This project is novel as it has multiple functionalities that is condensed in a single card. It deals with logging in entries, allowing transactions along with an Android application to keep track of records and stay notified.
