Assa Abloy introduces 'invisible' lock with mobile access

Minimalist design meets customer convenience in the new release of VingCard Essence, known as the world's first invisible lock. Now compatible with Assa Abloy Hospitality mobile access, VingCard Essence means guests can skip the front desk and unlock their room using their own smartphone or watch. It also means that hoteliers can create a homier, design-centric feel in their hallways and room interiors, without compromising on security.

With the new VingCard Essence, hoteliers get more advanced technology in a clean, minimalistic design that blends with any hotel décor. The stylish new design hides the electronics inside the door and works with most door materials.

Now, the industry's most uniquely beautiful and functional locking system is even smarter, with improved reading distance on the RFID reader, and wireless online capabilities. The product also benefits from compatibility with Assa Abloy Hospitality mobile access, powered by secure Seos technology, a revolutionary solution which allows guests to take control of their hotel experience, using their smartphone or watch.
