Assa Abloy Hospitality has integrated its Assa Abloy Hospitality mobile access keyless entry solution with OpenKey. Assa Abloy Hospitality and OpenKey have implemented mobile key-based guest access at multiple properties across the world.

“We are dedicated to aligning with companies that share our vision of a future where hotels utilize cutting-edge technologies to increase guest and staff security,” Eric Thomsen, GM software and credentials at Assa Abloy Hospitality, said in a statement. “OpenKey has made waves in the industry by supplying hoteliers with a user-friendly solution to allow guests to enter their room through a mobile application, evolving mobile access into the new standard in hotel access.”

Operating through secure Seos technology, Assa Abloy Hospitality mobile access delivers a digitally encrypted key directly to a guest's smart device, which can be accessed through OpenKey's mobile application at certain properties. Instead of employing the traditional front-desk check-in process, guests have the option to check in remotely and enter their room immediately upon arrival by swiping their personal smartphone against a mobile access-compatible lock.
