Jo-eBox and Oz-eBox
Are secure parcel boxes, letterboxes or drop boxes, on the boundary of your premises to receive normal mail, parcels or grocery deliveries from any delivery man or company. With todays booming parcel mail order business and shrinking letter post business it is time the modest letter box made the transition into the future residential parcel box for home delivery.
Both the Oz-eBox and the Jo-ebox have louvre doors to enable the delivery of Envelopes, Satchels and smaller parcels without using the code lock. This louvre door operates in the same way as the australian postal service boxes with a safety device to prevent any tampering with parcels or post in the parcel box. The Jo-eBox can receive a much larger parcel through the louvre door than the Oz-eBox. (max 387 X 240) vs (max 387 X 60).
Both the Oz-eBox and the Jo-ebox can accept larger or fragile parcels through the main entry door by using the code lock.
When you first receive your "Jo-eBox" or "Oz-eBox" set your own master code/pin and user pin on the codelock.
Large or fragile parcels (Example above: 3 cases Wine)(max 805H x 376W x 335D) must be delivered through the large door which requires using the code lock.
You can choose one of the following 3 methods that the delivery men can use to open the lock.
1. Address-Unlock option for home deliveries (Jo-eBox or Oz-eBox)
2. Single use code - Unlock option for corporate / residential buildings. (electronic lock only)
3. Scanner-Unlock option. (currently not available in Australia)
1. Address-Unlock Option: (for Australian Deliveries)
Leave the parcel box door locked as normal while you are out. When you return home you can retrieve your parcels at your leisure.
Australia Post still insists on this method as it has not adopted option 3 yet.
You need to tell your suppliers to deliver your goods with "Authority to leave" whenever possible under "special instructions" otherwise the goods will automatically be returned to the depot. This option can be used for all your deliveries if you choose.
2. Corporate Building Option: (for Australian Deliveries in a Communal area)
Oz-eBox's can be nested together and stacked on top of each other to create a "parcel delivery area" for residential or corporate buildings. This enables many different tenants to share a few parcel lockers.
An Oz-eBox can be programmed to change SPR code on every delivery to suit many tenants in a building. After a tenant has collected his parcel his SPR code immediately expires, this enables the next delivery person to use this parcel box with a new SPR code for another tenant.
3. Scanner-Unlock Option: (Courteousy of www.netlock.co Patent 2014100457 )
When they become aware of the benefits, more and more people and parcel delivery companies could adopt this scanner lock option.
(unfortunately until most delivery companies do participate, we cannot get this service in Australia).
To participate the delivery man must use the "Netlock" scanner app which can be downloaded by companies at no cost from the "Netlock' members site.
Android users can download the "Netlock Company" scanner app on google play for companies or the "netlock Guest" app for private android scanners. It is a free service and Customers have no ongoing charges.
If a box owner wants to use a local or private delivery person, who is not a member of www.netlock.co, they can enable a guest on their portal on this website. An Android app is available for smart mobile phones and scanners. Simply search for “Netlock Guest” on Google play and download to the mobile.
Although the technology has been supplied and Netlock has assured us they are making every effort to get all couriers and delivery companies to participate in the system it may take some time to get them to participate.
