text-lock padlock, control module and remote locker applications:

All text-locks are security locks manufactured to the highest standard to prevent tampering, to keep your goods safe until an authorised person sends the command for the door to be opened and access allowed. The basis of all our systems to to allow remote controlled access for the convenience of not having to be at the same location at the time access is required.

The following are examples of where text-lock systems may be implemented.

Good strong secure boxes such as this one illustrated here are secured in the locked position by the text-lock.

The text-lock itself is safely tethered by means of a strong chain to an immovable object such as a concrete wall which prevents anybody taking the box away.

Such boxes are ideal for both private and business use, ideal for taking deliveries and collections from ebay, supermarkets, Amazon and any other retailer, online or otherwise.

If you buy your groceries on line from one of the big supermarkets, currently you must meet the driver to take delivery of your order. This may mean that you have to make a special journey to receive your goods, or adjust your plans where without this commitment you could have stayed on at work for that important meeting, gone to the gym, met up with your friends or colleagues for a drink after work and so on.

With your signature server all you need to do is set up the delivery with the order number.

When the delivery arrives at your secure drop off point the driver texts your text-lock serial number with the order number to the signature server and the server will open the lock for the driver for you, keeping a record of his number.

When he closes the lock again after leaving your order safely in the box, he must then confirm he has made the delivery. You will be notified of this by text.

You can be in a busy noisy bar, swimming or engaging in any other work or leisure activity, even if you are out of signal or have your phone switched off the delivery will still be made without delay or any other problem.

If you include frozen goods in your normal grocery order, you may want to consider an insulated box. Alternatively a standard box would be fine, and just put the frozen goods in a smaller polystyrene box which in turn is placed in a standard box along with the other goods.

An insulated box such as the one illustrated here is ideal for taking fresh or frozen food deliveries such as those from supermarkets or deliveries to restaurants, pubs and bars.

You may have workmen who need to be able to access taps, meters, electrical switches, fuel tanks, valves etc. in a remote places.

For instance a farmer’s irrigation valve. This valve would need to be secured, as tampering could result in large quantities of lost water and the consequential financial loss.
