    Suggestions for system physically security?

    We're putting a wii in a break room, and unfortunately there's a real possibility that if the console isn't physically secured that it will disappear. I don't see an obvious way to secure it physically to anything.

    Any suggestions? I haven't been able to come up with anything better than a case with a combo lock which itself is physically secured where the stuff could be stored when not in use.

    (dang - meant "system physical security")

    that's it... make sure it has ventilation... thank god it's wireless.

    if you want accessibility to change games, maybe the rectangular hole in the front could be just slightly smaller than the face of the wii?

    how secure do you want it? Just enough to keep honest people honest or to really protect it?

    "I put a PS3 disc in it and the Wii wouldn't read it. WTF is this world coming to? If I buy a video game console, it better take and kind of media I want. Even if I were to dust off some of my vinyl LPs, the bastard better work."

    We're just trying to make it secure enough so that somebody just doesn't walk off with it because it's not attached to anything and easy to take. Bicycle lock level secure, not security vault secure.

    then you may find a kensington lock kit handy... these are what people use for laptops...

    i don't believe the Wii doesn't has a kensigton lock hole, but i'm sure there is a kensington kit that allows items to be nearly as secure.

    Get some of those PC anti-theft plates. They're basically three metal plates that are slathered in a 3M adhesive. The metal plates attach to the PC, the monitor, and the desk. There's a metal eye hole at the end of each plate that a metal cord and padlock attach to. We used to use those at the University I worked for. It'll give someone full access to the Wii but still keep it secure enough to avoid casual theft. And that adhesive is pretty darn strong.

    Have some type of container for it and lock it up when you're not playing. I have a picture of a glass door in my mind where it could be locked. When you play you can unlock it, since you're there to be the surity, so changing disc, etc. won't be a problem. Lock it back up when you're done :x
    Other than that I don't see any other methods.
