USPN 9,892,604

Gateway-Based Anti-Theft Security System and MethodImproved systems and techniques are disclosed for controlling the security states of anti-theft security systems such as product display assemblies using security fobs. The tasks relating to fob authentication are offloaded to a computer system, and these authentications can be based on identifiers for the different security fobs. The interactions between security fobs and product display assemblies can be consistent regardless of the population of authorized security fobs by using a security code that is shared by the security fobs. When attempting to use a security fob to change a security status for a product display assembly, the provision of the code to the subject product display assembly can be predicated on authorization of the subject security fob by the computer system. The computer system can maintain a list of identifiers for authorized security fobs that is easily updated when new security fobs are added to or existing security fobs are de-authorized from the system.

Authorization Control for an Anti-Theft Security SystemImproved systems and techniques are disclosed for controlling the security states of anti-theft security systems such as product display assemblies using security fobs. According to an example embodiment, a manager security fob and another security fob that is to be authorized for use in controlling the security status of a product display assembly can interact with a system in accordance with a defined sequence to add the another security fob to an authorization list for the product display assembly. For example, the defined sequence can be a connection of the manager security fob with the system, followed by a disconnection of the manager security fob from the system, followed a connection of the another security fob with the system within a defined window.

Intelligent Key SystemTechniques for using wireless electronic keys with electronic locks are disclosed. For example, a computer system can program an access code into a programmable wireless electronic key, and the programmable electronic key can then teach this access code to a programmable electronic lock via wireless communication to thereby program the programmable electronic lock. Unlocking action by the programmed lock can then be made contingent on there being a match between the access code from the key and the access code from the programmed lock. Further still, other operational control parameters (such as time limits) can be programmed into the key to restrict the ability of the key to unlock a lock. Also, audit data such as lock access history can be wirelessly transferred from an electronic lock to an electronic key, whereupon the key can later transfer this audit data to a computer for analysis.
