METRA: How Your Smart Lockers Support and Drive Your Business 

Do we know which locker is or can be called “smart”?  Any locker that we can open with an RFID card or a PIN code?  Not really. Smart lockers are a bank/group of locker compartments equipped with a networked (smart) locking system of interconnected locks (also called »Smart Locker System«) and remotely managed by locker management software. Metra Smart locks are electromotor-driven locks, as they are proven as the most secure, reliable, and maintenance-free locker locks. Metra smart locks are also made from easily recyclable materials and don’t contain any hazardous materials (ROHS3 compliance).

Access card, mobile app, or mobile wallet for locker access?

When deciding how your locker users will access the lockers, be sure to choose an option that extends both your access security and experience so your locker users can access the building and the lockers the same way, with the same access media. At the same time, your access security also encloses the lockers. For random daily guests/ locker users, RFID or barcode cards or wristbands are used, while mobile apps, wallets, and biometrics are used by “known” users, like employees, students, members, hotel guests, etc.

Metra Smart Locker System supports all locker access options, from cards/fobs and wristbands (RFID) to mobile apps and wallets (NFC, Bluetooth, and wi-fi), biometrics, and PIN/QR or bar codes. It supports 99,9% of access brands, like Mifare, DESFire, HID Seos, etc. Credit cards and mobile payments (Apple Pay) are used to access Metra rental lockers.

Choose any locker material, like HPL, metal, laminate, wood, or other, to make the lockers visually appealing to the users and onlookers. Fully concealed Metra locks provide fully clean(line) locker doors, which some use as a creative canvas to add colors, graphics, or images to locker door panels. Germ-repellent finish or coating can be used for lockers to maintain a high level of hygiene. In healthcare or R&D facilities Lockers securely store belongings.  Metra Smart lockers bring access security, user experience, and well-being to another level.

Each client and its locker user have different requirements about the level of locker use and experience the lockers should provide to their locker users.
