  • Patent number: 11417160
    Abstract: Examples associated with service kiosk access are described. One example includes monitoring the contents of a set of compartments of a service kiosk. Each compartment is capable of storing at least one electronic device in a manner that provides a power to the electronic device and a data connection to the electronic device. Upon reaching a specified condition, a request is generated for a technician to provide physical service for the service kiosk. The specified condition may be related to a status of the service kiosk, contents of the compartments of the service kiosk, and/or statuses of the contents of the compartments of the service kiosk. The technician is authenticated as being physically present at the service kiosk, and physical access to compartments associated with the specified condition is granted to the technician.

  • Patent number: 11380151
    Abstract: Examples associated with receptacle isolation are described. One example service kiosk includes a set of receptacles for electronic devices. Each receptacle includes a power connector to provide power to an electronic device stored in the receptacle, a data connector to provide a data connection to the electronic device stored in the receptacle, and a locking mechanism to secure contents of the receptacle. Members of the set of receptacles are digitally isolated from other members of the set of receptacles. An authentication module authenticates a user based on a credential provided by the user, and controls a selected locking mechanism of a selected member of the set of receptacles based on the credential, and based on data received from a remote information technology module. A user interface module instructs the user through the process of at least one of storing a received electronic device in the receptacle, and retrieving a provided electronic device from the receptacle.

  • Publication number: 20210402231
    Abstract: An example apparatus includes a cabinet body and a first storage receptacle at the cabinet body. The first storage receptacle is to temporarily store an electronic device. The apparatus further includes a second storage receptacle at the cabinet body. The second storage receptacle is to temporarily store another electronic device. The second storage receptacle is separate from the first storage receptacle to prevent physical access to the first storage receptacle through the second storage receptacle. The apparatus further includes a fire suppression mechanism to independently suppress a fire in the first storage receptacle or a fire in the second storage receptacle.

  • Publication number: 20210358258
    Abstract: Examples associated with device component distribution are described. One example apparatus includes a set of receptacles for storing electronic devices. The apparatus also includes a rotary distribution compartment to store components associated with the electronic devices. The apparatus also includes an apparatus controller. The apparatus controller includes an authentication module to authenticate a user based on a credential provided by the user. The apparatus controller also includes a distribution module. The distribution module grants the user access to a member of the set of receptacles storing an assigned device to be provided to the user. The distribution module also controls the rotary distribution compartment to dispense components associated with the assigned device.

  • Publication number: 20210349982
    Abstract: Examples associated with service kiosk device provisioning are described. One example includes receiving at a service kiosk, authentication data associated with a user, data associated with a first device currently assigned to the user, a device specification for a second device to be provided to the user, and provisioning data for the second device. A selected device is selected based on the device specification to serve as the second device. The selected device is selected from a set of devices stored in compartments of the service kiosk and operably connected to the service kiosk. The selected device is configured based on the provisioning data. At a physical interface of the service kiosk, a credential that matches the authentication data associated with the user is received. Physical access is provided to a first compartment into which the user is to store the first device. Physical access is provided to a second compartment from which the user is to retrieve the second device.

  • Publication number: 20210334765
    Abstract: Examples associated with service kiosk device maintenance are described. One example method includes receiving at a service kiosk, authentication data associated with a user, and data associated with a first device currently assigned to the user. The data associated with the first device includes a maintenance task to perform on the first device. A credential from the user that matches the authentication information is received at a physical interface of the service kiosk. The user is granted access to a first compartment of the service kiosk. The first compartment includes a power adaptor and a data adaptor. Upon detecting the first device has been stored in the first compartment and attached to power adaptor and the data adaptor, the maintenance task is performed on the first device.
