Operating Modes

TechGuard Connect Lockers operate in one of three modes:

  • Assigned: Specific locker bays are assigned to specific users to store and charge their device(s). User returns to the same bay every time.
  • Shared: User can walk up and take any available bay to store and charge. After retrieving their device(s), the bay becomes available for the next user.
  • Check-In / Check-Out (CICO): Assets are assigned to specific locker bays. Users can check-out available devices, using their RFID card.

Authentication Modes

Assigned and shared operating modes offer two authentication modes.

  • RFID: Radio-Frequency Identification. Provides a wireless, authentication system typically delivered through an employee badge, student ID or sticker. TechGuard Connect lockers currently support MiFARE Classic, MiFARE Desfire, HID Prox and HID iClass.
  • PIN: Personal Identification Number. PIN numbers are chosen by or assigned to each locker user to interact with the TechGuard Connect locker. TechGuard Connect and Bretford Connect support PINs ranging from 4-digits up to 10-digits in length.

NOTE: PIN mode and the ability to switch between RFID and PIN modes only available for screen and keypad models.
