Additional FUYL Tower Benefits

Multi-Level Security

All data stored in the Cloud is protected by industry-standard encryption certificates. LocknCharge Cloud remotely applies updates and security patches to Towers as they become available to better prepare against cyber attacks. Heavy-duty steel construction ensures devices are kept safe while inside the Tower.

Bay Visibility

Each bay has an external LED indicator to know if a bay is available (green), reserved (white) or offline (no light). A window provides visibility inside each bay–or if privacy is preferred, window-blocking plates are also included.

RFID or PIN Code Access

Compartments can be opened via RFID or PIN code. FUYL Tower supports almost every RFID standard on the market including HID and MiFare: (MIFARE® Classic, MIFARE DESFire® 0.6, MIFARE DESFire EV1, HID: iCLASS® Standard/SE/SR/Seos; PIV II, Secure Identity Object® (SIO®).

Future Proof

Modular replacement parts allow hardware serviceability in the field. Software and firmware upgrades are available over-the-air via the LocknCharge Cloud with a subscription purchase.

Easy-to-Follow Tower Display

Administrative functions are available from the 4.3” Graphical Color Tower Control Module and Keypad.2 The Tower’s user interface is simple to navigate for both admins and users.

Curfew Settings

LocknCharge Cloud allows Admins to configure Tower settings to restrict access to the Tower or a group of Towers.

Optional Network Kit

An optional Network Kit expands the data transfer capabilities through individual Ethernet connections to each compartment. The Network Kit enables installation of a network switch (not included), making it possible to re-image devices remotely.

Sleek Hardware Design

The FUYL Tower’s sleek, minimalist design adapts to any environment.

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.

Groups

LocknCharge cloud allows Admins to organize their towers into groups and sub-groups to perform Bulk Operations on all Towers within a group at the same time. As with all Bulk Operations, it is possible to override the settings on individual Towers as required.

Assign users

LocknCharge Cloud has a built-in User Directory that enables admins to control who is allowed to use FUYL Towers. Users can be assigned to the entire group of Towers, single Towers or individual Bays. Users 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.

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.

Break/fix workflow

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

Curfew

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.

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).

Webhooks

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.

Optional Accessories

FUYL Tower 15 Network Kit

With the FUYL Tower 15 Network Kit installed, each compartment has the ability to sync information and pull data from devices connected inside the tower.

LocknCharge FUYL Tower 5 Network Kit

The Network Kit allows IT Departments to install a network switch to the top of a Tower and connect devices from each bay to a network, making it possible to re-image devices remotely.

On average, mobile devices are being replaced every 3-5 years. By selecting an open-concept, durable and universal charging solution, there is no need to throw away additional funds on charging stations every time devices change. Consider the thousands of dollars and hundreds of hours saved each year simply by choosing a LocknCharge charging solution at the outset of a device deployment.

Physical Security

10% of mobile devices break or go missing in the first year of a deployment, and 41% of data breaches are due to lost and stolen mobile devices. Durable, secure charging stations by LocknCharge take device protection to the next level, providing significant savings on replacement hardware while avoiding costly fines from compromised data.
