The new Programmable Electronic Door-Lock from E J Brooks Co requires no keys or padlocks for operation because it is activated using the integral keypad. This lock serves two functions. First, as a self-locking barrier, it prevents unauthorized access. Second, the device aids in fleet control management as it records the date and time of each truck door's opening and closing as well as the identification of who opens the door. This information is stored and then transferred to a computer by using a hand-held pocket PC. The supplied software then compiles the data and allows management summary reports to be generated.
This system uses a stainless steel locking arm to keep the J-hook locked until the appropriate ID/PIN numbers are entered. It interfaces with most J-hook hardware used on roll-up doors. As an added security feature, the system locks down for a programmed time period if a pre-designated number of incorrect attempts are made to enter the proper ID/PIN.
