We are updating the locking system on our kiosks. Moving forward, Avanti Markets kiosks will no longer ship with a lock installed, but instead will have a hole where you can insert your own barrel lock, just like a vending machine. These are the same locks that have been used in our industry for many years.
As an operator, you will now have the opportunity to key your market kiosks with your own barrel locks specific to your business. This gives you better control of the security of your deployed kiosks.
