Supra TRAC-Guard™ Padlock Expands TRACcess® Mobile Entry System

Mobile-enabled wireless device enhances security and convenience at remote sites

SALEM, Ore., April 2, 2019 – Supra, a leading global provider of mobile credentialing and entry management systems, today introduced the TRAC-Guard padlock for authorized, secure access to virtually any remote site. Ideal for installations in telecom or utility stations, storage units or other locking points, this Bluetooth®-enabled padlock adds convenience and security in place of traditional mechanical or combination locks. Supra is a part of Carrier, a leading global provider of innovative heating, ventilating and air conditioning (HVAC), refrigeration, fire, security and building automation technologies.

The versatile TRAC-Guard padlock comes ready for use and fits seamlessly into Supra's TRACcess® Manager system to enable mobile access, real-time communications and 24/7 cloud-based management. The padlock allows access to authorized users, giving operators visibility into remote site activity.

"The TRAC-Guard padlock transforms remote operations, delivering online capabilities in remote and offline locations," said Fayyad Sbaihat, president, Supra and Onity. "Having visibility to site activity with real-time control lets operations managers increase workforce efficiency, reduce travel, monitor vendor visits and more."

The padlock enhances security via authorized and tracked access – unlike mechanical keys that can be lost or stolen or combination codes that can be shared. TRAC-Guard padlock operations are protected with layers of security such as individually authorized keys that routinely expire; required individual PIN codes; user permission for each locking point; and encrypted system communications.

"This mobile padlock solution is based on proven mobile-credentialing technology," said Sbaihat. "Supra key credentialing is deployed across an installed base of more than 3 million Bluetooth-enabled locking devices in multiple industries. This platform, combined with 20 years of mobile credentialing experience, delivers an industry-leading solution."

Cloud-based, 24/7 TRACcess Manager administration provides a view to access activity from the portal, or through email alerts or routine reports to monitor job status, confirm vendor maintenance visits and check the electronic logbook. Setting up mobile keys is quick and easy with permissions delivered in real time to the TRACcess eKEY® app. This eliminates the need for staff travel solely for opening gates or doors or providing access to assets such as heavy machinery. Bluetooth communications between the mobile key and the lock enable operations even in areas lacking cellular coverage.

The Supra TRAC-Guard padlock will be on display May 20-23 at the American Wind Energy Association's WindPower Expo, booth #3054, in Houston's George R. Brown Convention Center.
