Bigbelly Smart Extras
Configure your Bigbelly Units with our Innovative Technologies. Bigbelly Smart Extras can deliver so much more than smart waste and recycling solutions.
Deployed in the public right-of-way, these units are perfectly placed for hosting additional technologies that can modernise a city’s core services.
The Bigbelly units are easy to access and can hide smart technology in plain sight.
Remote Hopper Locking
Stations are checked manually for safety, and once confirmed and remotely locked, they cannot be used by the Public during the time of the security event.
Any tampering with the station during this event (forcing of the hopper or the door, or movement of the unit) will trigger a series of alerts to nominated people in the Municipality or Security Services.
The LED indicator will reflect the current unit breach state:
- Solid Green + Flashing Red/Yellow – The door has not been opened since entering Secure mode.
- Solid Red + Flashing Green/Yellow – The door has been opened since entering Secure mode (Breached)
The Bigbelly smart station can be used as a sealed unit to conceal a Wi-Fi hotspot in the public right-of-way. Powered by solar, there are no plugs or grid power required.
The technology housed inside can provide instant Internet access with up to 20 metres signal radius.
This is ideal for congested cities and Heritage Trails.
