USB Solenoid lock controller for laptop charging cabinet
We are going to put half a dozen laptops in our staffroom, in some kind of secure cabinet. I'm aiming for a cabinet with six individual slots, each with a power cable for charging the laptop and secured by a door locked with a computer-controlled lock. Staff will have to enter their username and password to open an individual door to get a laptop out. What's the bst way to do the computer-controlled lock part of things? Is there a simple USB-based interface available that I can control easily from a Python script or similar?
