A New Generation of Intelligence, Flexibility & Security

need alt text

In this modern world, things are ‘‘going digital’’ — and locker access is no exception. Managing keys, lugging around padlocks, or memorizing (er, forgetting) combinations is ancient history — fodder for campfire stories.

Like everything, locker technology has evolved over time, and is being adapted to offer newfound levels of flexibility, security and digital accessibility when it comes to putting ‘‘stuff’’ in smart spaces.

Unlocking Big Benefits for Today’s Storage Spaces

The digital ‘key’ that unlocks standard metal containers and transforms them into modern multi-purpose storage systems is a single trusted identity. RFID access cards, credentials on mobile phones, or wearables are just some of the access avenues to smart lockers that deliver big benefits to both users and the businesses managing them.
