QuestionI seek help defining a SCRUM structure for an application I am working on. Pin

I have nearly finished anapplication with no formal methodology, but as things progress and the need to properly record and track things, I would like to make use of my chosen tracking system, TargetProcess. As it is I have my hands full getting to know all its features and coming to grips with defining my project through it, so I thought I'd ask for some help.

The app imports access control data for parking lots, from a third party (Impro). The data is basically when a driver swipes card at a terminal to enter or exit a zone in the car park. I then, by the grace of God, match entry and exit records to form VehiclePresence records. I apply a pricing table to VehiclePresence, to calculate amounts due for parking, and create BillingMessage objects which I send via API to a billing service (WHMCS).

There are some nasty edge cases, like when a driver enters via an open parking terminal (cheaper parking) and then enters through an internal terminal - without a real exit from the open terminal, and then exits through either. Another edge case is a power outage where booms are manually operated and entry and/or exit records are missing.

Now I can write many, many user stories for this application, but TargetProcess requires a feature for a user story, and that is where I battle. So far my rough draft of features is:

Parking access control.
Data import and vehicle movement database.
Processing and calculation and a vehicle presence database.
Billing
Security (not mentioned above, but goes without saying).
Configurability.
Reporting.
SMS and Email communications of important events.
Would you say thej above list is a roughly accurate feature breakdown of the app I describe earlier in the question? If far off, some advise on why would be appreciatd.

If you ask me, in a SCRUM context, that looks like a pretty crappy set of features. Maybe I need some epics at the top to narrow down the list, and more features below.

BTW, the puerile and mewling bunch of pricks on Programmers.StackExcgange.com closed this because it's "not a real question". I wish all StackExchange members had a mandatory reading comprehension test.
