Check In/Out

Employees, students or guests (such as substitute teachers) can easily check out devices as needed. Designate who can access the FUYL charging tower in advance or on the fly. Towers can track who has taken a specific device and when it has been returned.



Reduce device downtime by streamlining your frictionless break/fix workflow. Employees and students can easily drop a broken device in the FUYL Tower and retrieve a new device while theirs is being fixed.



Shared Devices

Employees (such as shift workers or field crews) can easily share the same set of devices. Pre-set access to specific Towers or bays to limit who is able to access specific devices. Plus, track when a device has been taken and when it has been returned.


Loaner Devices

Any time loaner device is needed, simply grant that person access to a designated compartment, Tower or group of Towers. Track who took the device, when it was taken, and when it has been returned.




Public Charging

Placing a top of the line FUYL Tower in "Public Mode" makes it open and available for anyone who needs fast and secure charging on demand. Examples include students, employees and customers who need a device charge during the day, for environments where devices are prohibited, or even for students with housing insecurity.

Glossary of Cloud Features

Public Mode

In Public Mode, the FUYL Tower functions as a public charging station where users can choose an empty/available bay (green LED), enter a PIN or swipe an RFID card to reserve that bay, and secure their device inside for later retrieval. After the bay has been reserved, the LED will turn white, indicating to other users that the bay is reserved. When the bay has been re-opened by the user to retrieve their device, their PIN or RFID is automatically cleared from that bay, and the bay is available for the next user (the bay LED will turn back to green after the door is pushed closed). This mode functions very similarly to a hotel safe.

Bay access via PIN or RFID

The keypad and RFID reader built into the control door give customers maximum choice for accessing the bays on the Tower. The full capabilities of the RFID workflow is determined by a paid LocknCharge Cloud Subscription.

Basic administration from Tower display

FUYL Towers can be administered directly from the hardware (LCD display on the Tower). A Station Admin can lock down bays, unblock bays in error state, inspect the contents of bays, open & close doors and more.

Admin roles/types

Owner: The Owner has complete administration control of the Tower. The Owner profile can invite and create as many as they like. Owners can create, review, update and delete anything.

Admin: An Admin cannot delete other Admins but can do everything else that an Owner can do.

Station Admin: Station Admin can only perform administrative functions that are available on the Tower’s LCD menu. Station Admins do not have access to the LocknCharge Cloud portal.

Over-the-air updates

New features are automatically available to customers as they are released to Cloud, without the need to download anything from the Tower. As updates become available, the Cloud portal will display an ‘update available’ icon so that admins can apply the updates to their product(s).

Remote station administration via web portal

Manage all of your LocknCharge FUYL Towers from one portal, no matter the location.

FUYL Towers can be on-boarded into a Cloud account and administered remotely using the Cloud portal, rather than using the physical LCD screen and number pad on the Tower. Remote Administration includes:

Unlock: This action unlocks a compartment and clears the PIN

Offline: This action puts the bay in an offline state, preventing user access so that Admins can quarantine, inspect or update bay contents (if applicable)

Clear user: This action removes user access from a reserved bay

Tower lockdown: This action puts a Tower in lockdown state preventing user access to entire Towers

Event log

All interactions with the FUYL Tower(s) are logged in an event log. These logs can be viewed centrally from the Cloud. Reporting includes ability to export CSV file of the event log.

Bulk operations

LocknCharge Cloud makes setting up FUYL Tower configurations fast by allowing admins to set bulk settings from the account level based on their Cloud subscription tier.

It is possible to override the account-level settings on individual Towers should admins want to configure Towers with different settings. E.g., bulk operations include configuring network settings, assigning users and changing Tower mode settings.


Admin can tag users, groups, stations and bays to filter items.


LocknCharge Cloud has a built-in reporting tool in the web portal interface to provide you with an insight into how your organization is using FUYL Towers. Using the 'Reports' section, you can easily view and analyze the usage statistics, including; current bay states, current user reservations, station usage and usage by user.

Station groups and user groups

LocknCharge Cloud allows Admins to organize their Towers into station groups and sub-groups to perform Bulk Operations on all Towers within a station group at the same time.

Admins can also create user groups to better manage users and to authorize large sets of users to specific stations or groups of stations. Additionally, if user group members change over time, authorization for station access changes with user group updates, saving significant time.

As with all bulk operations, it is possible to override the settings on individual Towers or individual users as required.

Assign users

LocknCharge Cloud has a built-in User Directory that enables admins to control who is allowed to use FUYL Towers. Individual users or user groups can be assigned to the entire group of Towers, single Towers or individual Bays. Individual users or user groups can be created directly in the Cloud Portal or can be imported from a CSV file. Users can be granted access with RFID or a unique PIN. When users are assigned to Towers, the event log allows for an easy audit trail of who accessed which bay and when. 

Break/fix workflow

The Cloud allows admins to change Tower settings in a specific configuration that facilitates break/fix workflow.

Check-in/check-out workflow

The LocknCharge Cloud allows admins to change Tower settings in a specific configuration that facilitates check-in/check-out workflow.


LocknCharge Cloud allows admins to configure Tower settings to restrict access to the Tower or a group of Towers. Curfews can be set for specific days, every day, single time spans per day or multiple time spans per day.

Self-register RFID

Reduce the burden on Admins for setting up users with RFID. Users can be prompted to register their ID Card during the bay access process.

Cloud API

LocknCharge Cloud API allows programmatic access to the Cloud. This allows customers to create their own applications for users to interact with. (E.g., users would interact with an interface via an iPad for checking devices in and out, as opposed to a Tower’s LCD monitor.)

Any existing programs can also be integrated using Cloud API. This allows customers to continue to use software they already use–such as the help desk software–as part of the workflow for which they are using the Tower(s).

For API documentation that contains instructions about how to effectively use and integrate with the LocknCharge Cloud API, click here.


Webhooks allow admins to send real-time events from FUYL Towers to other systems to enable automation of downstream workflows.

How this works is all events from the Tower(s) on-boarded into the LocknCharge Cloud are automatically sent to the Cloud events log. In the Cloud portal, admins can register a webhook for specific events they are interested in and get LocknCharge Cloud to forward the event information to the preferred downstream system. E.g., ServiceNow® can take automated actions when those events are received.
