Production costs for small businesses in today’s IT market conditions make it impossible to develop cheap custom hardware devices that target niche potential customers. The solution is to order standard devices from Original Equipment Manufacturers and customize them accordingly by adding hardware and software features. The system presented in this paper uses a standard Smartphone contained in a custom case that was designed to restrict access to the controls and keep the user inside the application while offering him the possibility to access most important functions of the device via software controls. The user operation and device data are logged and saved in online database in case that device has internet connection.
