VC Integrator Kit - the easy way to your own Smart Locker solution
Turn any locker into a smart locker system.
Locker systems are finding their way into more and more areas, as a click & collect station for parcel reception, for storing luggage or as an employee locker - the areas of application are wide-ranging and can be found in many sectors.
Benefit from our processes and components.
The integration of Variocube hardware and software in locker systems of metal construction companies, office furniture suppliers or carpentry companies gives you the opportunity to include smart solutions in your product portfolio without additional development effort. Depending on the depth of integration, each component can be used individually or as a complete package consisting of: VC Core Cloud, apps, IPC unit, screens and locks.
The software is supplied by Variocube and is turnkey ready, or meets the requirements defined with you and the processes adapted accordingly.
Build the furniture of the future - functional and smart with software integration, locking hardware and operating and control components from Variocube.
The Integrator Kit offers modular integration according to need
The Variocube integrator kit provides furniture and metal construction companies with the right solution for configuring their own smart locker system. Depending on the customer's requirements, it is possible to select from the available components in order to obtain a cost-optimised variant. The plug & play capability of most components ensures easy installation.
You either benefit from our cloud services, the applications or use reliable hardware components such as controllers, locks, IPC up to the touch screen. In addition, other accessories such as payment terminals, NFC readers and bar or OR code scanners can also be used. Do you want to control alarm systems, lighting, roller shutters and electronic door latches? This is no problem with the I/OExtender.
Level 1 - Software Licensing
Cloud based software
Our cloud-based applications cover a wide range of applications. Package reception, click & collect, goods transfer, mailroom services, rental lockers and much more are immediately available as standard applications. For special applications, we work with our customers to determine their requirements and develop customised solutions. Open interfaces (API) are used to integrate external systems such as CRM and ERP systems, ActiveDirectory and employee databases.
Level 2 - Hardware Integration
All central components such as the industrial PC, LTE router with SIM card and power supply units are integrated in the IPC-unit.
The 10.1" touch screen is also available as an outdoor version.
Consists of touch screen, hardware components (industrial PC, LTE router with SIM card and power supply units) and mounting frame.
Controllers & Locks
For the easiest possible integration and reliable function, we recommend using the controllers & locks we distribute.
The Variocube I/O Extender connects external systems with the Smart Lockers in order to address them system-wide
Scanner & Reader
Barcode / QR code scanner and NFC reader (Mifare & Legic) extend the range of functions.
Goods and services can be paid for directly by EC or credit card via the payment-terminal.
How the individual components of the Integrator Kit work together
A SMARTER Locker is more than just the sum of its parts. The challenge today is to be able to map different logistics processes in the most diverse areas of application while keeping the costs in check.
A smart locker is a mechatronic device that demands all professions in these areas from the locker system (metal/wood) to the electronics to the software in the locker and in the cloud as well as the integration via APIs into the operational IT systems of the customers from the locker manufacturer. Only through a skilful interaction of these components can a customised and stable solution be achieved for the customers.
Always the right software solution for your customers.
Based on our many years of experience in the realisation of smart locker systems and software applications, we offer applications such as POBox, SafeCube, ServiceCube and Click & Collect as standard in our portfolio. You benefit from fast implementation, low set-up effort and a wide range of functions. In addition, we also offer our customers individual solutions for special wishes and requirements for hardware and software. Due to the available interfaces, our applications can be perfectly integrated into your existing systems and processes.
