Have you ever gone to your storage unit and forgotten the key to your lock? What about rolling down your window to enter your code to open the gate during inclement weather only to find the keypad is not working? Newark Safe Storage is excited to bring you a more secure and user-friendly way to think about gate and storage unit security. The best part is all it takes is an item you most likely already have: a smartphone.
Newark Safe Storage has introduced a product named the Nokē Smart Entry System for our main gate and Pole Barn access for interior units. Nokē is a Bluetooth electronic lock that allows you to access the site and units by an app on your smartphone. No more forgotten or lost keys or having to open your car windows to enter a code on a keypad. Just open the app, tap on an icon and you can access the site and unit.
Setting up the app is easy. On the day your lease starts, you will get a text message to your phone with a link to download the app and a passcode. Once you download the app, you sign in with your phone number and the temporary passcode to create an account.
Another fantastic feature of the Noke Smart Entry system is digital key sharing. You can go onto the app and grant access to a family member, friend, or anyone you want to access your unit. Access is totally in your control and you can add or remove access as you wish.
Noke Bluetooth locks are proud to be the best Bluetooth lock in the self-storage industry.
By offering the Noke lock system, we have allowed our tenants to enter the facility by using their smartphone (rather than a gate code) and also get notifications if the lock is tampered with or broken into.
No, physical padlocks are not needed and cannot be used with the Noké ONE Bluetooth lock system.
Noké uses all encrypted passcodes on the backend and has been cyber security tested by ethical hackers and has continually passed with flying colors. In addition, if someone tries to break the latch with a hammer or something the system is fail secure so they still would not be able to get into the unit.
Personnel can only get into units that go into an auction status due to extended lack of payment as outlined in the lease agreement. Even if the unit is in an overlock status, site staff cannot get into rented units for liability purposes. .
For any tenants that do not have smart phones, you can buy a blue tooth key fob for a nominal price (tbd). It’s a Extremely simple key chain programmed to the entry points and their unit that can open the unit simply by pressing it.
1. Click the link in the automated text message to download the Storage Smart entry app and log in.
2. Log in using your phone number as your username, and the 6-digit PIN number provided as your temporary password.
3. After logging in, the app will prompt you to create a new password of your own.
4. Select “OK” twice when prompted to allow the Storage Smart Entry app to access both Bluetooth and Location Services on your device. Note: Bluetooth must be turned on in your smartphone’s settings in order to access your unit.
Tap the LED light on the smart lock to “wake” it. Open the Storage Smart Entry app on your smartphone. Note: You will need WIFI or cellular signal to authenticate upon opening the app. Once the smart lock is “awake,” the unit icon on your app will highlight. Tap the highlighted icon to open the door or entry point.
Using location (while the app is being used) is a safety feature built into the app to make sure you are at the facility before the app allows your unit to be opened. Make sure you have Location enabled while using the app.
Click on the plus sign in the top right-hand corner of your Storage Smart Entry app and select “Share Unit.”
Type in the cell phone number of the person you would like to share the key to and select the unit or entry point that you’d like them to get access to. Note: You can revoke access at any time.
NOKĒ ONE smart locks are always running on battery units. This means the tenant's belongings are going to sit safe and secured even in the event of power failure. The unit is still going to be armed and recording data, which will be reported back to the smart system once the network is back online.
Add Storage Smart Entry by Nokē mobile app to another device by downloading the app to the other smart device by visiting the app store. Then you will sign-in with your mobile number or email, then enter in your same password as before.
