DESIGN, TECHNOLOGY KEY TO NEW LOCKS AND SAFES
New guestroom lock offerings from VingCard, Kaba Ilco, MIWA and Onity focus, respectively, on design and technology. They will be displayed at the International Hotel, Motel & Restaurant Show in New York this month.
Signature by VingCard signals a reinvention of hospitality security design, according to the company. Research by industrial design firm Bresslergroup suggested a lock with attributes such as minimal exterior hardware, attention to the needs of disabled guests, a large selection of handle designs and finishes, and modular design
Kaba Ilco says its Kaba with ATLAS (advanced technology lodging access system) meets requirements and interoperability standards set by Hotel Technology Next Generation (HTNG), an association trying to get vendors and hoteliers to speak the same technological “language.”
Kaba's ATLAS is a PC server-based system that incorporates scalable, component-based design and a browser-based user interface.
MIWA is rolling out its ALFH lock, a system incorporating Felica, new card reading technology from Sony. MIWA's ALFH is a high-security smart chip card that can be used for different functions within a commercial environment.
Onity will launch the Laptop 50, a safe with a digital keypad and audit trail, at the New York hotel show. It also will demonstrate updates to the Onity Online Wireless Communication Platform, which allows centralized computer management of guestroom locks, said Adam Yapkowitz, vice president of business development.
