Title: PROVIDING ACCESS TO A LOCK FOR A SERVICE PROVIDER
Abstract:
It is presented method for providing access to a lock for provision of a service. The method is performed in a lock manager and comprises the steps of: receiving a request for access to the lock, the request being based on the service consumer ordering a service requiring access to a physical space which is secured by the lock; sending a first consumer request to a service consumer device, asking whether to grant access to the lock for a service provider agent to provide the service; receiving a first positive consumer response from the service consumer device, indicating that the service consumer allows the service provider agent to access the physical space secured by the lock; generating a temporary credential for the service provider agent; providing the temporary credential to the service provider agent; and configuring the lock to accept the temporary credential.
