How Building Guests Can Use Smiota’s Smart Lockers for Package Delivery & Securing Personal Items

in Package Management Systems

Occasionally, the need may arise for visitors of your business or building to use Smiota’s package lockers. They may be looking for a safe place to drop off deliveries or a means of temporarily securing personal items. 

Rather than entering these visitors into the system, they can simply register as guest users and gain temporary access to the lockers. And at the end of each day, the system will purge their data to protect their privacy. 

Here’s how guests can quickly and easily borrow Smiota’s lockers.
