Why Use Smart Replacement Locker Locks?
There are many different reasons to replace mechanical locks on your existing storage lockers. Perhaps the previous locks have become damaged or outdated, or you may just feel like it is time to evolve your business with a more technologically advanced solution. In any case, it’s important to choose a replacement lock that is both smart and secure.
Smart locker technology allows you to manage access to your lockers remotely, which means that you can keep track of who is accessing what and when, from anywhere with an internet connection. This not only makes it easier to keep track of your inventory, but also helps ensure the security of your teams personal items.
In fact, smart lockers have a number of additional benefits over traditional, key-based lockers:
- Increased security – With a smart locker system, you can control who has access to which lockers and when via keyless entry and online locker management. This makes it much harder for unauthorised personnel to gain access to the locker contents providing peace of mind and increased protection for your business assets.
- Convenience – The online locker management system eliminates the management of thousands of locker keys or a process of resetting the combination lcoks. This means administrators and business owners can benefit from an automated solution which completely removes the burden of administering lockers
- Efficiency – A smart locker system can track which items have been removed from each locker and when. This helps you to more easily monitor the use of your resources. Additionally, because credentials are authenticated electronically, there is no need for users to remember multiple passwords or PINs optimising the storage process.
