Is the administrator software cloud based, integrated in the FUYL Tower or installed on the administrator PC?
Each FUYL Towers has its own Management Portal, which can only be accessed locally from a Web browser by the Local (site) Administrator (Eg School IT person) from any computer with a Web Browser on their Local Area Network.
If a problem occurs with a locker (perhaps a door is forced open), how would the administrator know?
The Administrator would either have to be verbally informed, or they could log into the Tower’s Management Portal, to be made aware of the problem.
If the Tower has been registered for the FUYL Tower Assist service, they would be automatically notified by email.
Towers registered for Assist receive an email alert within 15 minutes of a breach or other suspicious activity.
Note that the Assist capability requires that the FUYL Tower have access beyond the bounds of its Local Area Network. It need to be connected to the Internet.
You can register as many or as little as you like. But we recommend you register all as it saves Administrators a lot of time when it comes to monitoring them.
Without Assist , monitoring to detect problems would require having to ‘pull‘ status information one at a time by logging in to each FUYL Tower. With Assist, alerts are ‘pushed‘ to the Client within 15 minutes of a security issue.
This only requires emailing an Assist Subscription request from the FUYL Tower Administrator (eg School IT person). A LocknCharge Assist Administrator will respond with a subscriber password.

The FUYL Tower Administrator (eg School IT person) would then enter these details on their FUYL Tower(s) via the Management Portal. From this moment on they will receive alerts, and this may of course be on or off-site.
ASSIST and the Management Portal are great tools to get the most out of your FUYL Tower, but it can be used with these features straight ‘out of the box’. Below is a snapshot of the differences in use scenarios:
1. Stand Alone: the FUYL Tower is used as an electronic locker, only permitting access to lockers via the keypad.
2. Networked: the FUYL Tower is connected to a Client’s Local Area Network via WiFi or Ethernet. This allows:
a. keypad access
b. PLUS the ability to control access to any FUYL Tower on a Local Area Network from any computer on that LAN, connecting either by WiFi or Ethernet. Using a Web browser, the local Administrator may log onto each Tower’s Management Portal. From the portal they may view status, or control lockers (open or locked).
3. Assist enabled: The FUYL Tower is configured to permit Web access, and is registered to make use of Assist services. This allows:
a. keypad access
b. the ability to control access to any FUYLTower on a Local Area Network from any computer on that LAN, connecting either by WiFi or Ethernet. Using a Web brows-er, the Local Administrator may log onto each tower’s Management Portal. To view status, or control lockers (open or locked).
c. PLUS automated email notifications of suspicious activity or locker failures, on or off-site.
