Title (EN) APPARATUS AND METHOD FOR SECURING MERCHANDISE WITH OPTICAL LOCK AND KEY
(FR) APPAREIL ET PROCÉDÉ PERMETTANT DE SÉCURISER DES MARCHANDISES À L'AIDE D'UN VERROU ET D'UNE CLÉ OPTIQUE
Abstract:
(EN) Systems, apparatuses, and methods are provided herein for securing merchandise. In one embodiment an apparatus for securing merchandise comprises a locking mechanism limiting access to one or more items, one or more optical sensors configured to detect a plurality of wavelengths and an intensity associated with each wavelength from at least one light beam emitted by an optical key, and a control device comprising a control circuit and a memory device. The control device being configured to store a lock code comprising a plurality of wavelength values and a plurality of intensity values each associated with a wavelength value on the memory device and determine whether to release the locking mechanism based on whether intensities of each of the plurality of wavelengths detected by the one or more optical sensors match the lock code.
(FR) L'invention concerne des systèmes, des dispositifs et des procédés permettant de sécuriser des marchandises. Dans un mode de réalisation, un appareil permettant de sécuriser des marchandises comprend un mécanisme de verrouillage limitant l'accès à un ou à plusieurs articles, un ou plusieurs capteurs optiques conçus pour détecter une pluralité de longueurs d'onde et une intensité associé à chaque longueur d'onde à partir d'au moins un faisceau de lumière émis par une clé optique, et un dispositif de commande comprenant un circuit de commande et un dispositif de mémoire. Le dispositif de commande est conçu pour stocker un code de verrouillage comprenant une pluralité de valeurs de longueur d'onde et une pluralité de valeurs d'intensité associées chacune à une valeur de longueur d'onde sur le dispositif de mémoire et pour déterminer s'il convient ou non de libérer le mécanisme de verrouillage selon que des intensités de chaque longueur d'onde parmi la pluralité de longueurs d'onde détectées par le ou les capteurs optiques correspondent ou non au code de verrouillage.
