Solar-powered package locker Control Features

Remote heartbeat

We incorporated a new 4G Mobile Router with an "always ON" feature, ensuring continuous remote access to the router. For optimal operational control and security, the router must remain powered continuously. Currently, aside from the SunCharge Locker, no other Next-Gen locker possesses this capability, resulting in restricted access between the locker and the server. 

A remote heartbeat is a control option that allows for the monitoring of the status of a solar-powered smart parcel locker from a remote location.

In the context of a smart parcel locker, a heartbeat refers to a signal or message sent from the locker to a central server at regular intervals to indicate that the locker is still functioning properly.

This control option is particularly useful for ensuring the reliability of a solar powered smart locker. By receiving regular updates on the status of the locker, operators can quickly identify and address any potential issues before they cause a disruption in service. Additionally, remote heartbeat monitoring can help to prevent unauthorized access to the locker by alerting operators to any unusual activity.

Autonomous battery parcel locker at its best

Equipped with a GSM module supporting 4G connectivity and GPS, it ensures seamless communication and real-time monitoring. We have successfully incorporated features such as Touchscreen Monitor, Pin Pad, QR scanner, CCTV system, LED light system, and other advanced features aimed to revolutionize the way we perceive and utilize solar-powered autonomous battery lockers.  

The AK 500 ECO boasts some impressive features for a great software experience. The locker enables remote door opening, it keeps the server informed about the door lock status, providing essential security and monitoring. Furthermore, it supports remote firmware updates. Through GSM transmission, the locker regularly sends the status of its peripherals to the server at specific intervals, as determined by the client. This facilitates efficient monitoring and maintenance.  

The AK 500 ECO also boasts the convenience of remote reset functionality, enabling quick and hassle-free troubleshooting.

Convenience

Autonomous solar-powered lockers offer a convenient way to receive and send packages at any time of the day, without the need to interact with a person. This is especially useful for customers who have busy schedules and cannot wait around to have their package delivered

Increased Security

Autonomous smart parcel lockers are typically very secure and can prevent theft and damage to packages. They usually require a unique code or key to access the locker, which can be sent to the customers or recipients via email or text message

Time-saving

The solar-powered package lockers can save time for both the sender and recipient, as they eliminate the need for physical interaction and waiting for a delivery person. This can be especially useful in busy urban areas where traffic congestion and parking can be an issue

Cost-effective

Using autonomous parcel lockers can be more cost-effective than traditional delivery methods, as they eliminate the need for labor costs associated with delivery drivers and trucks

Environmental Benefits

Solar-powered smart lockers can also be more environmentally friendly than traditional package delivery methods, as they reduce the number of vehicles on the road, resulting in fewer carbon emissions and pollution. The solar panel system also eliminates the need for an external power source and makes smart locker systems completely independent from the grid

Configuration and options

The configuration and options of a smart battery parcel locker can play an important role in ensuring that it is functional, secure and customizable to meet the needs of the user.

For example, if a locker is intended for storing athletic equipment, it may need to be designed with specific dimensions, ventilation and locking mechanisms to ensure that the equipment is secure and well-maintained.

Can also impact its security features. Different types of locks, access controls, and monitoring systems can be used to enhance the security of a locker and prevent unauthorized access or theft.

Moreover, can allow for customization to meet specific needs or preferences. For example, a locker may have options for adjustable shelving, different lock types, or customizable colors to match the design of a particular space or meet the needs of a particular user group.

Compartment type

ARKA offers an array of standard compartment types to suit varying parcel dimensions, while also providing the flexibility to design custom models based on individual customer needs. Enjoy convenient storage solutions featuring bespoke compartment configurations, specifically designed to accommodate your distinct needs and preferences

Number of columns

The Solar-Powered Smart Parcel Locker is designed with 2 standard columns to efficiently store and secure parcels while utilizing renewable energy. To accommodate diverse requirements, our product line offers customizable configurations tailored to meet specific capacity demands. Adjust the number of columns and dimensions as needed, creating the ideal sustainable solution with our solar-powered parcel locker for your unique environment

Payment system

Effortlessly manage transactions with ARKA's user-friendly payment system, accessible through a dedicated application. This secure and convenient method simplifies the payment process, streamlining your parcel locker experience and ensuring smooth operations

Benefits of using solar panels in package delivery lockers

The benefit of using a solar panel in a smart locker is that it can significantly reduce the energy costs of operating the parcel locker. Furthermore, these innovative solar panel lockers have the added advantage of being unaffected by power outages, as they run on battery power and do not require an external power source. This ensures that the lockers remain operational even during blackouts or when the grid experiences high energy demand. 

Solar panels are an environmentally friendly and sustainable source of energy, which means that using them can help reduce the locker's carbon footprint and reliance on non-renewable energy sources. Here are some of the benefits of using a solar panel in an autonomous parcel locker:

Reduced energy costs

The Autonomous Battery Locker doesn't use electricity, thus saving costs related to its usage. If the locker is positioned outdoors, it utilizes solar radiation energy for the peripherals of the locker to function. Solar panels can also provide a long-term return on investment, as they have a lifespan of up to 25 years.

Environmental sustainability

Solar energy is a clean and renewable source of energy, which means that using it to power the locker can significantly reduce its carbon footprint. This is especially important for companies that are looking to use the solar power, reduce their environmental impact and demonstrate their commitment to sustainability

Increased reliability

Solar panels can provide a reliable source of energy, as they do not rely on the electrical grid. This means that even in the event of a power outage, the autonomous locker can still operate using solar power

Improved flexibility

Solar panels can be installed in various locations, making them suitable for autonomous lockers in a range of environments. Besides solar power, they can also be easily integrated with other renewable energy sources, such as wind or hydro power, to create a more efficient and sustainable energy system
