RESCON Builders – HID Mobile Access App

RESCON Builders design and build granny flats by combining practical living with beautiful modern architecture. Based in New South Wales, the team utilise an extensive partner network to focus on affordability, energy efficiency and sustainability. Above all the team pride themselves on ensuring high-quality and professional results on every project. METRA Australia were engaged to design and supply personal locker storage for staff located at their main office and showroom in Bella Vista, NSW.

 

 

Our team’s intelligent and flexible solution included installing durable High-Pressure Laminate lockers in a style to suit and enhance the office setting. Each locker was fitted with our patented hardwired (no batteries) METRA electronic lock with RIFD proximity access. Staff access assigned lockers with their smartphone (and selected smart watches) using the HID Mobile Access app (available on iOS and Android) via secure (encrypted) HID Seos® credential technology. A central Display RFID panel communicates locker signal functions (lock/unlock) and is back office coordinated with MyMetraLockers (MML) management software.

“METRA AUSTRALIA HAVE BEEN GREAT TO DEAL WITH AND COMPLETED OUR JOB TO A HIGH-QUALITY STANDARD. WE OPTED FOR A CUSTOM AND COMPLEX DESIGN WHICH WAS NO HASSLE FOR THE TEAM AT METRA. INTEGRATING OUR EXISTING SECURITY SYSTEM WITH THE LOCKERS WAS A COMPLEX REQUEST BUT WAS COMPLETED AND FOLLOWED UP ON UNTIL EVERYTHING WAS WORKING SEAMLESSLY. OUR NEW LOCKER SYSTEM IS AN INTEGRAL PART OF OUR NEW ACTIVITY BASED WORKSPACE AND HAS BEEN WELL RECEIVED BY ALL OUR STAFF.”

RFID Wristband cashless payments


Netbookings (reservations and booking software) and METRA Australia have partnered to create an integrated RFID wristband solution.

RFID wristband technology offers seamless access management and improves on-site security such as facility entry and open/closing of personal locker storage.

RFID is considered more secure than paper tickets due to the chip found inside the wristband or access card that is uniquely tied to the holder of the card, which ensures it can only be presented once.

With our RFID cashless payment solution you can offer an enhanced user experience.

Our solution works by assigning a RFID wristband to a locker along with a cash credit amount. The credit can then be used towards food or beverages, or other products or services.

HID® Mobile Access app – Open lockers with Apple Watch®!

Utilising the HID® Mobile Access app with METRA Australia lockers offers a smart, user-friendly and secure locking solution for personal locker storage.

The HID® Mobile Access app means personal storage lockers can be accessed via your Apple Watch®!
