Our church is working towards setting up a Square account, initially for "little things," like youth fundraisers, paying for outings, etc. Probably move to allowing members to give their offerings through this in the next phase.

I'm sure there has to be several here whose church has already gone down this road. Of those who have, do you have policies in place concerning who can use the reader (we've purchased a tablet that will be dedicated strictly to this function), etc.? What can you recommend for maintaining control? Thanks in advance!

I use the Quickbooks card swipe/reader for my business. Love that thing. At the time I had researched all of them. There's pros and cons to all of them.

Hello, everyone. I've been lurking this community for some time. I've noticed that most discussions center around A/V, streaming, and otherwise production.  I was wondering if any have done any automation in their church/campus? What I mean is, at home, I use a Vera Lite and several Z-Wave devices (light switches, door locks, thermostat) to automate various aspects of my home.  Has anyone here done the same at your church? I'm looking for ways to reduce energy costs from people leaving lights on, or better control over the 10(!) thermostats we have in our buildings.

We have just the one controller, and as its very central to all the devices its in direct range to the majority of them. It's my understanding that they had to set it up to run some sort of repair sequence (I'm assuming a reboot or similar) every week at night because otherwise it would very occasionally turn random things on. We have never had something turn off unexpectedly. The only glitch I have seen that was a semi major issue was that it decided that it wouldn't let us log in directly to the controller for a couple weeks. We don't know what it was, but were able to get in by the vera remote site login. Then one day it fixed itself.

I don't know 100% everything about how its set up, as it was my predecessor that set it up.

Just had a 10kW system installed on my roof, and all I can say is, "Go away, clouds!"

40-250W Hanwha Q-Cells, controlled with 2 SMA 5000TLS inverters.

Really excited about this!

First-rate repair! Took my daughter's '98 S70 to get it ready for going off to college. Explained to Shaun that I mainly wanted to make sure it was dependable. He went over the car and made a comprehensive list of things that needed repaired and things that were broken but could wait a bit. Very professional, and he even punted out that many of the things i could do myself.

The care here is great! However, this has got to be the slowest pharmacy in the world! It's literally 10 minutes between check-ins. It can take over half an hour just to get a prescription refilled.

I've been dealing with Barrett for three years and two cars. The sales staff and service staff have always been the epitome of courtesy and professionalism. The service writer goes out off her way to see that I'm satisfied. My next car, if it is a Jag, will be bought at Barrett.
