Lockers in Space

Introducción

The term "locker" within Space can refer to a locker, cupboard, display cabinet, box, or case fitted with an electronic device that controls the lock. SALTO lockers are commonly used in corporate organizations, universities, and gyms.

The lockers functionality is license-dependent. See Registering and licensing Space for more information.

You must initialize a locker with a PPD before it can be used. The procedure for initializing lockers is the same as for initializing locks. See Initializing locks for more information and a description of the steps you should follow.

The following sections describe how to create and configure a locker.

This functionality is intended to be used only with SALTO lockers. See the table below. However, if you're configuring Gantner lockers in Space, you should also see the sections on how to add and configure GAT Net controllers, zones and user access levels. If you're configuring Gantner lockers, please refer to the Spaxx user guide.

The Lockers screen also gives the information about which user has taken the locker and until which date and time will it be taken.

The Set lockers states as opened button gives you the option to reset the status of available lockers on the system. This option applies to all lockers in the system and changes the status of each locker to Open on its information screen. However, it does not affect the physical lockers. It is generally only used in installations, such as gyms or spas where only free assignment lockers are in use. To activate this button you must select the Control of lockers left closed checkbox in System > General options > Access points in Space. See Access points tab for more information.

If required, you can activate additional fields on the Locker information screen. To activate the Ext ID field, you must add the SHOW_EXT_ID parameter on System > General options > Advanced. See Advanced tab for more information. The Ext ID field displays a unique identifier for the locker, automatically generated by the system. You can amend this identifier if required.

You can also add and name a maximum of two General purpose fields using Space General options. To activate a general purpose field, you must select the Enable field checkbox in System > General options > Access points tab in SALTO Space. You can then name the field in accordance with the information that you want to capture.

You can create multiple lockers at once by using the Multiple add option. In addition, you can edit multiple lockers at once by using the Multiple edit option. The Multiple edit button is enabled when you select more than one entry on the Lockers screen. This allows you to enter the appropriate identification and configuration details on the Multiple edit screen including access rights. The details are then applied to all of the selected entries. See Configuring lockers for more information about the configuration settings for lockers.

Configuring lockers

The various fields used to configure lockers are described below.

Connection types

The Connection type panel defines the connection type for the locker. The default option is Offline. When you select any of the other (online) connection types from the Connection type drop-down list, a Configure button is displayed on the Locker information screen. See Configuring online connection types for more information.

The connection type options are described in the following table.

OptionDescripción

Online BLUEnetUsed for lockers that are connected to the SALTO network using BLUEnet technology. When you select this option, a + Configure button is displayed on the Locker information screen. In this + Configure screen you can add the locker to a BLUENet node or a BLUENet repeater you already had initialized in SALTO Network tab (System > SALTO Network). The Lockers BLUENet functionality is license-dependent. See Registering and licensing Space for more information.
Online GAT NetUsed for lockers that are connected to the SALTO network and provided by a Gantner GAT Net lock. When you select this option, a + Configure button is displayed on the Locker information screen. In this + Configure screen you can add the locker to a GAT Net controller you already had initialized in the SALTO Network screen. This functionality is license-dependent. The RF functionality is license-dependent.

Opening modes and timed periods

See Opening modes for information on opening modes.

See Timed periods for information on timed periods.

Opening time and time zone

The Opening time panel defines how long a locker thumbturn stays active after it has been unlocked.

The following table describes the different locker opening time options:

OptionDescripción
Open timeDefines how long a locker thumbturn remains active after it is unlocked. The default time value is six seconds. The value can be increased or decreased in the range 0 to 255 seconds.
Increased open timeDefines a longer opening time. This option is designed for disabled or 'hands full' users. The default time value is 20 seconds. The value can be increased or decreased in the range 0 to 255 seconds. You must enable this option in the user's profile. See Key options for more information.

The Time zone panel defines which one of the system time zones is used for the locker. You must enable the multiple time zones functionality in System > General options > General to display this panel in Space. See General tab and Time zones for more information.

Locker options

The Locker options panel defines locker functionality, such as auditing locker activity, allowing users to secure a locker without a key, and reducing battery consumption. The following table describes the available locker options.

OptionDescripción
Audit on keysAllows monitoring of when and where keys are used. You must enable this feature on both the locker and the user's key.
Is free assignment lockerDefines whether a locker works as a free assignment locker within an area or has assigned access. To activate this option, you must add the FREE_ASSIGNMENT_LOCKER parameter in System > General options > Advanced. See Advanced tab for more information.
Close locker without cardAllows a user or a group of users to secure the locker without a key. This is a useful feature for common lockers that are used by a small number of users, for example, medicine cabinets or store cupboards.
IButton key detection: pulsed modeReduces the battery consumption and the risk of rust on the IButton reader contacts as the key detection is done in pulsed mode instead of continuous. To activate this option, you must enable the SHOW_KEY_DETECT_MODE parameter in System > General options > Advanced. See Advanced tab for more information. This option is only compatible with PPDs that have firmware version 1.02 or higher.
Admit expired keysAllows users holding expired keys to open a locker for a specified number of days. The range is 0 to 255 days. It also allows users to access an SVN wall reader to update their keys. If the option is activated with the value "0" the expired keys will have access to the locker until 24.00 within the day that they have expired.
Inhibit audit trailEnsures that the lock will not memorize openings in its audit trail. However, the lock can still write information on the key. To activate this option, you must select the Allow audit trail inhibition checkbox in System > General options > Access point.
