Frequently Asked Questions

How do managers gain access to the HELOX smart padlock?

  • HELOX is integrated into StorLogix Mobile for operators open Vacant Units.
  • Since this is a primary lock, they are not allowed to control a Rented Unit’s lock.

What happens when the customer doesn’t pay their storage bill, and the unit gets auctioned and re-rented? How does the facility regain control of the lock?

  • They vacate the unit via Property Management System (PMS) to StorLogix Cloud (SLC), and then they can control it with StorLogix Mobile (SLM).
  • As long as the unit is rented, only the tenant can open it, but the owner/manager can trigger the Overlock function so it won’t open for the tenant until they are paid up. This will happen automatically with the PMS integrations, but the managers can manually suspend units whenever they want.

How easy is it to cut?

  • This is not a standard padlock. This lock has been proven to defeat manual bolt cutters while testing HELOX.
  • The shackle is made from 10 mm case-hardened boron steel and has been thoroughly tested in our world-class manufacturing facility in Finland.

How does an operator view battery life?

  • The battery status can be viewed with StorLogix Cloud.
  • HELOX will operate up to 5,000 openings.

Is EasyCode used at all access points and HELOX?

What is the Bluetooth range for the HELOX smart padlock?

What happens if HELOX is taken outside the geofence? What is to keep it from being used at another location?

What if tenants forget to re-lock the unit? Is there a notification to the tenant, or the manager?

What else is reported back to the tenant?

What does a manager have to do to first set up EasyCode and then set up the HELOX?
