The Electronic Cabinet Lock: State-of-the-art Technology for Everyday Hospital Life

RFID cabinet locks for keyless management of lockers and authorisations

Whether it's clothing and valuables in the patient's room, staff uniforms in the staff changing rooms or medical supplies and medicines: in hospitals there are numerous things that have to be stored securely and reliably accessible to authorised persons at the same time. Whereas in the past numerous keys had to be administered for furniture locks and locking systems and issued as needed, digital solutions are gaining ground for securing cupboards, lockers and the like. Lockers and staff lockers are now increasingly secured electronically by code or RFID technology. Modern electronic cabinet and furniture locks from primion can be used in a variety of ways and without contact via RFID transponders in ID cards or chips. The electronic cabinet locks offer various setting options and operating modes. Depending on requirements, the lockers can either be permanently assigned or freely selected by the user using software. Thus, the digital cabinet locks offer further decisive advantages in everyday hospital life to make processes more efficient and at the same time guarantee absolute security.

For special requirements: electronic cabinet locks from primion in hospital operations

A large number of changing patients and numerous employees with different working time models and various access authorisations - from administrative staff to surgical personnel to cleaning staff - are the hallmarks of everyday life in hospitals. Flexible, time-saving processes and a maximum of safety for patients and relatives as well as for employees are the top priorities. In addition to functional access control and visitor management, the innovative primion locking systems in hospitals ensure that clothing, valuables and medical equipment can be stored safely. The electronic cabinet locks offer various operating modes and, by means of software, enable both a fixed assignment of lockers and free locker selection by the employees themselves. At the central terminal, an ID card can be used to query which cabinet or locker has been assigned to a user.  

The primion principle convinces with state-of-the-art technology: the electronic cabinet and furniture lock contains the reading unit including the communication electronics, the mechanics and the battery-operated power supply for up to 65,000 confirmations. The electronic locker solutions can be ideally linked to various primion products such as access control and time recording. If the appropriate rights are stored in the system, users can use their RFID transponder - chip or card - to enter the hospital building, record working hours, open doors and open and close either a permanently assigned locker or a freely selected locker. A system with maximum security and minimum administrative effort!

Thanks to their operating modes, primion's electronic cabinet locks are ideally compatible with everyday hospital life. For example, staff can freely select one locker each from up to two different areas - an important aspect, because medical staff need different clothes on the ward than in the operating theatre area. So, two lockable lockers are required for one user. The primion locking systems for lockers and cabinets make it possible to permanently assign lockers to hospital staff or to release them for other people. Thousands of lockers and locks for several thousand employees can be managed securely and completely keyless in this way.  

Security meets efficiency: exploiting the advantages of electronic cabinet locks

The modern locker solutions from primion are easy to install and just as easy to operate. Thanks to battery operation, the locks work completely wirelessly, are reliable, durable and save time. For example, there is no need for staff to issue and take back keys, and no costs for lost keys. Cards or badges can be easily blocked and replaced if lost; if a staff member cannot remember which locker was selected, the information can be viewed at the central terminal at any time. Thanks to modern RFID technology, lockers, cabinets and lock boxes can be easily integrated into environments with access control and time recording, thus making a decisive contribution to increased efficiency and more security in everyday hospital life.
