The "BearLock" is the number one ingredient for an unstaffed site. The BearLock opens a unit only when the customer renting it has logged in to the site. It will also automatically overlock a unit if a client is marked as locked out by your rental software - there's no need to have someone physically present to padlock their unit.
The BearLock uses wired connections so that you don't have to change every battery after 3 years. It also works on a wide range of different door types including roller doors.
Storage customers can unlock their units from their phones using the BearBox Control app.
BearLocks are available in two different styles to suit your door configuration:
- Traditional sliding bolt model that can be padlocked.
- Hidden BearLock - principally for swing doors. This mounted inside the door frame and so requires no door furniture.
Rental software integrations
BearBox integrates with your unit rental software so that as soon as you’ve set up a new client, their code will work on a BearBox keypad.
We have integrations with:
- Space Manager
We regularly work with new software providers to integrate them with our system.
A suite of functions that you can tap into in order to exchange data with the BearBox server. There are many possible uses for these functions - for example, if you have a website or application that manages your invoicing and unit rental, you can use our APIs to create a seamless customer experience so that they are granted access immediately after checkout.
The BearBox APIs can also be used to create personalised functionality - for instance if you wanted to create custom reports that will be automatically imported into your in-house software. If you have a particular use case you're thinking of, please [get in touch with our sales team] to discuss your needs.
Competitor site takeovers
We can upgrade your legacy system to a BearBox one, retaining most of the original cabling and components. We'll just add our keypads and logic boards into the system to give you all the benefits of BearBox's intelligent online site management.
We currently have drop-in upgrades available for our major competitors. Ask our sales team about site takeover options.
