1. An apparatus that enables access to an enclosure, the apparatus comprising:
a container having at least one side selectably transparent to radio frequency (RF) transmissions, the other sides of the container opaque to RF transmissions;
a wireless transmitter disposed within the container, and a wireless transceiver, a global positioning system (GPS) receiver, and a near-field communications (NFC) receiver each disposed outside the container;
one or more hardware processors and hardware memory storing instructions that, when executed by the one or more hardware processors:
receives a current geographic location of the apparatus via the GPS receiver;
determines a range between the location and a delivery address;
as the range is less than or equal to 1000 feet, sends a request to a cloud-based server via the second wireless transceiver for a hash digest associated with a remote input receptor that controls access to the enclosure, wherein the cloud-based server and the remote input receptor store a cryptographic hash function that generates the hash digest based on an acceptable input for the remote input receptor;
receives the hash digest via the wireless transceiver from the cloud-based server;
as the NFC receiver detects the apparatus is within a distance less than or equal to 8 inches, converts the selectably transparent side of the container to RF transparent; and
transmits the hash digest via the wireless transmitter to the remote input receptor, wherein the remote input receptor applies the cryptographic hash function to the hash digest to unmask the acceptable input and allow access to the enclosure.
