Where Am I ? v1.7 Readme

 See screenshots

Where Am I ? runs from IIS (Microsoft's built-in web server) either on a server, or direct from a tablet, or desktop with a touch-screen by the door (this is called the kiosk). It is suggested to place a kiosk by every entry/exit door for convenience and to remind end-users to checkin/out. Optionally, you can allow end-users to change their status by visiting a webpage on the LAN; from their own workstation, smartphone, etc. Otherwise, end-users can only view the status of everyone by visiting a webpage.

There is as an admin section, password protected, for adding/removing users and reviewing the logs. The system can be backed up in real-time as flat files, there is no special database or agent required. All the pages are un-obfuscated ASP, which can be customized.

If you have a IP security camera that supports .jpg request via http (any Axis camera supported) and it is watching the kiosk, you can also save a picture of the user as they change their status, this is an added protection to find someone that shared their PIN with another user and is having them checkin/out for them.

If you have multiple buildings, Where Am I ? supports up to 3 buildings by default, you can rename them as you wish, more or less buildings can be customized.
The number of end-users is unlimited and sorted alphabetically, the list refreshes every 30 seconds by default, or refresh on demand.

Multiple kiosks can be used, but they must each have a static IP. If you have multiple buildings or multiple doors with IP security cameras, the IIS site must be duplicated to bind to a unique URL (one for each kiosk), although the back-end data location can be configured the same across all instances.

Tested on Windows 7, 8, 8.1 and Server 2003, 2008, 2012
