Secure storage units called “smart lockers” use computers and sensors that automate the delivery and pickup of packages. Smart lockers are typically utilized as a package delivery system for multi-tenant buildings. At the same time, they may also be used as a temporary storage facility, such as for travelers to store bags during a protracted layover.
To ensure successful deliveries and avoid package theft, mail carriers can leave goods in smart locker, safe locations with locked doors. Smart lockers can also be utilized in commercial buildings. However, they are most common in multifamily housing. Deliveries for office renters and their staff are made easier by smart lockers.
Smart lockers are typically found in public areas like the lobby at the front of a building. To drop off packages, package delivery employees use a digital code to open locker system compartments. In general, smart lockers might reduce package theft and mail couriers’ “sorry we missed you” notes.
The parts of a smart locker system:
These are the secure storage areas where packages are kept. Couriers can open a compartment by keying in an access code and scanning a parcel. The cubby will then lock whenever they place a package inside of it.
Software for smart lockers
A smart locker is only considered “smart” by the software. It drives the user interface for the locker system, which enables messengers to enter a digital code to open compartments and safely deliver packages. The software also enables building staff to give carriers access codes and upload a tenant directory. Finally, when a resident receives a delivery, the smart locker’s software automatically notifies them through text, email, or mobile app.
How do intelligent lockers operate?
Delivery personnel can use smart lockers to ensure secure deliveries by placing packages inside the lockers after entering a digital code that electrically unlocks the locker compartments. As a result, property employees automatically handle delivery management, and tenants can pick up their packages from the smart locker whenever they want.
The steps for using a smart locker system
A courier enters an access code at the locker, which often has a touchscreen or digital interface.
Each package is scanned by the courier, who also labels whose resident each one is for.
The door automatically locks when a courier closes a locker door after placing a box inside.
The smart package locker system will automatically email each resident who received a delivery notification and a special PIN or QR code. If the system has a mobile app, the notification could be sent as a text message, email, or app notification.
Residents utilize their QR or PIN code to access the appropriate locker compartment and retrieve their things.
Smart lockers security
The best smart lockers are, in fact, comparatively secure. Tens of millions of Americans experience at least one package theft each year. Smart lockers assist in hiding packages from curious eyes. With a code, smart lockers are easier to break into. Additionally, there is a more complex way to open the lock or hack them.
Some legitimate security worries:
A stranger is obtaining a resident’s or a courier’s access code.
Instead of using the lockers, couriers elect to leave packages in the open.
