    Laptop Trolley - Check in/out security

    We have a number of laptop trolleys in use at our primary school and I'm trying to come up with a system that allows easy access to the laptops so that they can do the job they were bought for but that also gives control over the physical security of the laptop itself.

    I have tried to get the teachers to count how many are in the trolley before they take the number they need (They are not always used as a full class set) and then to record how many they have taken together with their class name, their initials and the time they took them but this is proving tricky as there is a need for students (year 5 & 6 only) to access the trolley themselves sometimes. The result is that we keep checking the trollies at the end of the day and finding that some are missing. Often they are still in use somewhere on site but we have no idea where.

    We cannot be the first school to have this issue so I'd be interested to know if anyone has come up with a workable solution that allows easy access to the laptops for the classes but that retains a level of security over their whereabouts. I'm not looking to be too draconian about it but I do want to stop having to replace laptops!

    Thanks in anticipation

    Are you using a managed wireless system?

    Ours will tell as which AP clients are connected to.

    Something like this integrated into a smaller locker for laptops would be ideal SALTO Networked Locking System - Locker Locks

    They're about 100 each for the locks themselves.
