Hublet Smart Docking Station …

The Hublet Smart Docking Station provides a completely secure space for your Hublet tablets to be displayed, charged and data wiped (on return) in a package that is incredibly small in footprint.

Secure, charged and ready to go

The Hublet Smart Docking Station provides a completely secure space for your Hublet tablets to be displayed, charged and data wiped (on return) in a package that is incredibly small in footprint. The Station is available as a wall mounted option or, the most popular choice, a free-standing unit that can be positioned anywhere in your facility.

Unlike regular tablet solutions that require staff to setup and configure the device, arrange for loans and erase all the content on return, the Hublet Smart Docking Station handles all of this for you. In just four simple steps, your customers can borrow, use and return the device without a single interaction with any member of staff.

Self-service in 4 simple steps

Step 1 … Scan your library card

The Hublet Smart Docking Station keeps every Hublet tablet secure and fully charged when not in use.

To loan a device the customer simply scans their membership card (if used within a library), presents an RFID card, swipes a magnetic card or selects a tablet using a user ID and pin entered on the touchscreen.

Once the user has been validated, one of the tablets is unlocked and a green light indicates which can be removed.

Step 2 … Remove a tablet

The green light means the tablet is ready to be removed from the Smart Docking Station. It’s a simple as grabbing the large handle on the top and pulling it out of the slot. As soon as the device is removed it will automatically connect to your WiFi network and be in a completely clean state ready for us.

Step 3 … Enjoy a wealth of content

All of the content on a Hublet tablet is controlled by you, with digital editions of books, magazines, podcasts and audio all provided by your chosen content provider. In addition, you can choose to add apps from the Google Play Store that you wish to be made available to your users.

This pre-authorisation of content is a critical part of the entire Hublet solution, allowing your team to establish what content is available for a particular audience. For example, you can choose particular books, magazines and app suitable for children, slightly different content for teenagers and a completely alternative catalogue for adult readers – the scope is entirely up to you.

Step 4 … Replace when finished

As soon as the loan period has expired (or before), the tablet is simply dropped back into an available space on the Smart Docking Station, where it is then connected to the charging system, locked in placed and securely wiped ready for the next user. During the wiping process:

  • All browsing history is removed
  • Passwords are erased
  • Personal data is wiped
  • Downloaded content is erased

Stay safe with Fotonit coating

Every Hublet tablet and Smart Docking Station is sprayed with a special self-disinfecting Fotonit photocatalytic coating at the point of production. This special solution protects the devices and those that use them by using regular light to destroy viruses, bacteria, mould spores and more.

Available in 3 or 6 tablet variants

The Hublet Smart Docking Station is available in two versions that can accomodate either 3 or 6 tablets, depending on your requirements. Both units are exactly the same size and can be ordered in free-standing or wall mounted versions.
