A system and method for storing, charging and monitoring one or more handheld electronic devices. A cabinet structure is provided that defines compartments. The cabinet structure supports a power supply, a controller, an interface, a camera, and alarms. Cables lead from each of the compartments to the power supply. The cables are terminated in the compartments with a variety of connector heads. The system is operated by a user utilizing an interface and a systems controller. When a user places a handheld electronic device in a compartment and connects that device to the appropriate connector head, a power connection is made. Furthermore, the controller assigns a unique access code to that connection. Should a person undue the connection without first entering the proper access code into said interface, then the camera and alarms are activated.
An apparatus, system, and method are disclosed for tracking the location of one or more target tracking apparatus with a master tracking apparatus. The master tracking apparatus communicates with the target tracking apparatus via radio frequency (RF) signals. The target tracking apparatus includes a tamper-resistant band and closure that are designed to resist unauthorized removal from the target ... The present invention relates to a charger for charging the battery of an electric vehicle, comprising at least one port for exchanging electric power and/or data with a vehicle during a charge session, first data communication means, for saving information regarding the charge session to a data storage location, second data communication means, for communicating a reference for obtaining access t... The invention relates to a power supply device for wireless communication with a communication device, in particular a wireless contact based or contactless communication device, of a user and for supplying power to an authenticated device based on a result of the wireless communication, wherein the authenticated device is a user's device or an on-demand service device authenticated by the power s... The invention relates to a charging station (100) for charging mobile electronic devices (404), and an associated server (300), system (400), and method (500). The charging station (100) includes a plurality of lockable enclosures (120), each having an associated charging terminal (222), an input arrangement (124) operable to receive a mobile subscriber identifier, and a communication module (122)... A multi-device charging assembly for providing electrical power includes a power control assembly configured for supplying a plurality of charging voltages to at least one electronic device, a display board assembly configured for displaying status information to a user associated with the at least one electronic device, and a microcontroller board assembly configured for controlling each of the p... The disclosed embodiments provide a charging station for portable electronic devices. During operation, the charging station obtains input from a user to the charging station. If the input matches an ongoing transaction associated with charging of the portable electronic device by the charging station, the charging station uses the input to identify a first secure compartment of the charging stati... One embodiment of the invention is an apparatus for determining the initiation of a charging process for a secure charging apparatus. The apparatus has circuitry for authorising a user, circuitry for confirming connection of a device, and circuitry for confirming charging of the device. A security mechanism identifies users, so as to restrict operation to authorized users, such as to persons authorized to fly a given aircraft. The security mechanism comprises a controller operable by a user; one or more security devices to identify the user attempting to operate the controller; and one or more monitoring devices to determine whether or not the user identified is authorized to ope... A kiosk includes a front panel defining an opening in a body and an interactive screen positioned within the opening. A moisture resistant support structure is disposed between the front panel and the interactive screen. A central processing unit is disposed within the body and the central processing unit is operatively connected to the interactive screen.
