TOUCHLESS

Metra smart locker system comes with a variety of user interfaces, most of which offer contactless, hygienic unlocking and opening of the locker. Unlock your locker without the need to touch the locker or locker doors. Open the doors directly on-door, on central RFID reader with smart access media (card, fob, …), remotely with a smartphone or smart watch app (NFC, Bluetooth or Wi-Fi network) or combine them for an extra user-friendly locker use.

Self-opening locker doors – beside unlocking your locker, Metra smart lock will also wide open the locker doors for you.

100% HYGIENIC

When COVID-19 pandemics hit the world, we made extra efforts to offer our smart locker users safe and hygienic use. We relied on our three decades of experience providing solutions to medical facilities when we integrated touchless technology, clean surface design and cleaning service mode to offer clients COVID-19 compliant workspace/delivery lockers and prevent the spread of germs.

Touch-less – The best way to keep locker use hygiene at a high level is to minimise the need to touch the locker and providing automatic locker cleaning mode.

Cleaning mode – Using Metra’s smart locker cleaning mode provides another option to make sure your lockers, especially if the lockers can have multiple users, clean and disinfected.

Antibacterial materials – Specific locker materials provide an additional antimicrobial protection to keep your lockers as hygienic as possible.

 CLEAN-LINE DESIGN

Metra smart lock is fully concealed. This enables a modern, fully clean-line locker design, something your architects and interior designers will love and appreciate. We understand that locker design is an important part of achieving the desired visual experience of your facility.

Get creative with locker door design or graphics!

100% INTEGRABILITY

Metra smart locker system can be seamlessly interconnected with any existing access control or other smart facility system. Employees can continue using the same media for unlocking our smart lockers as they use for building access, logging time etc., thus reducing the need for extra access media.

 AGILE & SPACE SAVING

Using Metra smart lockers is a very good option to efficiently use, manage and optimise needed locker storage capacity. You can simultaneously reduce lockers for employees, visitors or guests by up to 30% and support the activity-based dynamic of your flexible workplace with a self-serving, short-term locker use logic.

MAINTENANCE FREE

Make sure you don’t have to deal with costly, time-consuming, stressful chores and locker downtime situations. Metra’s smart lock is thoughtfully designed, constructed and tested to be maintenance-free. It is assembled from noncorrosive parts only. As it is powered by low voltage electricity, you save money, time and the environment (no changing and disposing of harmful lock batteries, no unwanted locker downtime). Special lock design can compensate in case of shabby locker doors and hinge wear. It can flawlessly operate even with over packed locker contents exerting pressure from the inside which is not the case with other types of locks.

 ADAPTABLE USE

Metra smart locking technology is extremely flexible and user-centric. You can adapt it to your organisation and preferred ways of use on the fly. Lockers can be permanently assigned, self-assigned, rented, used for delivery & pick up or shared. Our locker management system allows you to configure lockers to your dynamic at any time without even going near the lockers. Change permanent lockers to short-time use, change or add locker media, make a personal locker a project locker or make other changes, for individual locker or multiple lockers. Choose what fits best for your type of company/ organisation or business.

Short-term, temporary locker use – Smart short-term lockers, also called flexible or agile lockers, are either self-assigned by the user or are auto-assigned by the system for a specific, shorter time period, depending on preferences.

Long-term locker use –  Smart long-term lockers, sometime also called permanent or personal lockers, are usually preassigned from locker management software for a longer time frame.

Shared locker use is where there are two or more preselected users who can simultaneously access and use the smart locker. Usually used for safely storing project, financial, meeting or other type documentation.

Smart delivery / Pick up lockers are used for inbound, outbound or in-house drop-offs and pick ups for employees, tenants or other users. A user, e.g. a courier or an employee, can access the locker once (to leave something in the locker), and only the preselected recipient can access the locker (to collect the item in the locker).

Combo locker use –  Our smart locker system gives you an option to freely combine short- and long-term locker use for the most tailored locker use, either on individual locker, locker bank or the whole locker installation.

 ANTI-THEFT PROTECTION

Our highly secure electric motor-driven lock is the market leader in its capability to   withstand pull force, making it a trusted guardian of your belongings. Once the locker is locked, there is no direct access to the lock. The locking system is equipped with real-time security features including visual and audible alarms and break-in attempt detection. This means the alarm is triggered in the very act of breaking in, giving you enough time to react. The quality-built locker and locker design can also add to the level of locker security.
