A number of advanced hardware and software features have been added to the CyberLock system since it was first introduced to the market in 2000. However, not all of the innovative ways to utilize CyberLock have come from our engineers. A number of them have come from our customers and how they have implemented CyberLock. Most recently, a North American delivery company used the CyberLock system in a unique way to implement location-based access control.
The company transports large containers filled with goods on behalf of their customers to locations all over the country. All parties in the supply chain were seeking to improve security and traceability of the delivered goods. They liked the fact that CyberLock enabled them to quickly and easily restrict access to the goods so that only approved employees could access the containers. However, they were interested in implementing location-based access control. Specifically, they wanted delivery drivers to only have access to the cargo bays when the trucks arrived at their scheduled delivery location.
A standard CyberLock deployment of keys and padlocks would restrict when the driver could access the truck cargo bay, but it doesn't restrict where they can access the cargo bays. Rather than attempt to introduce and integrate a complicated GPS based system, the client simply installed CyberPoints at each of its delivery locations. Then, they implemented the Temporary Activation feature of the CyberPoint. Now, when the drivers arrive at the delivery location, they must present their CyberKey to a CyberPoint which gives the key temporary authorization to access the cargo bay. In addition, the company was able to gather valuable information about how long each driver is at a delivery site by having the drivers touch the CyberPoint just before departing their locations.
