WatchLock® Securing a Semi-Truck Trailer Hasp

WatchLock® offers a unique combination of advantages over other high-security locks:• Personal Control – You will receive an immediate real-time alert if the lock is opened at an unusual time. Reports about the lock exiting a predefined area (geo-fencing) are received at predefined intervals. Knowledge = Control;
• Quick Response – You can react immediately upon receiving an alert of any deviation from the normal routine;
• Monitoring – Consistent reports transmitted by WatchLock® provide you with verifiable information about opening and closing of the lock’s shackle;
• Supervision – WatchLock® helps prevent theft by employees and intruders and, if necessary, assists in locating the lock itself, if it has been stolen or misplaced;
• Ease of Use – After a simple installation (like that of a cell phone) the lock is operational. The lock does not require external power, and operates without needing any supportive infrastructure or wiring;
• Cost Reduction – WatchLock® “The Reporting Lock” enables you to save both supervision and inspection expenses.
