Yellowbox lockers installed at Sydney’s World Heritage-listed Hyde Park Barracks

Yellowbox lockers installed at Sydney’s World Heritage-listed Hyde Park Barracks
June 21, 2021

The Sydney Living Museums have provided their visitors with a hands-free immersive historical experience, by installing Yellowbox lockers within the UNESCO World Heritage-listed Hyde Park Barracks.

As an Australian National Heritage List and a World Heritage-listed site, the Hyde Park Barracks is an extraordinary living record of early colonial Australia. Visitors applaud the museum for its engaging experience, and through the installation of Yellowbox lockers, will now be able to store their belongings and explore the museum hands-free.

The Yellowbox lockers offer self-serve access, allowing visitors to book and open up a locker on their own using the Yellowbox app. They are able to pay-for-use in the app, similar to ride sharing and food delivery apps.

The digital receipt within the app, means the visitors will always know how long the booking has been running for, and which locker they have booked. In-app support also ensures onsite staff aren’t required to monitor and assist with the lockers.

Yellowbox also provided a management app for onsite staff, providing staff with visibility over current usage and is a master key for the lockers.

The lockers are made of laminate, and were manufactured in Australia by one of Yellowbox’s trusted manufacturers, Lockin.

The installation process was seamless, as the lockers didn’t require any wiring, GPOs or Wi-Fi connection.
