Beauport Hotel Gloucester installs dormakaba Saflok networked locks

Beauport Hotel Gloucester

The new Beauport Hotel Gloucester opened its doors with mobile-ready networked Saflok Quantum RFID guestroom electronic door locks from dormakaba as well as perimeter and facility access-entry points. The property's electronic door locks communicate with the Beauport Hotel's front-office system over dormakaba's Messenger Lens network for a more secure guest environment. The luxury Beauport Hotel Gloucester is located ocean front on Cape Ann, Mass.

“Guest safety and convenience were a priority when we planned Beauport Hotel Gloucester," GM Ray Johnston said. "We wanted to be able to trust a reliable networked lock platform that communicated with our front office system and allowed us create a secure perimeter access. Saflok's Quantum RFID electronic door locks and Messenger Lens wireless online network let us remotely monitor guest door activity to provide a safe, secure environment for guests. We can also interrogate guest keys for access information and remotely recode doors for greater guest convenience and flexible property security.”

Johnston noted that the property also installed online networked Saflok locks on its perimeter access entry points, its rooftop pool, workout area, and business center.

"We have direct access from our beach that we secure with Saflok," he said. "The locks and RFID key code system are so flexible that we can enable guest keys to let them into the building and their rooms, but not allow direct beach access to our restaurant."

dormakaba's Messenger Lens wireless online system provides two-way communication between the front desk and a property's guest room doors and perimeter access electronic locks. Messenger sends staff notifications or alerts from property locks if a door is left ajar for a specific period of time or for maintenance issues such as a low battery. Messenger alerts may be delivered to a server, directly to a cell phone via text message, or to an email address to ensure guest safety and proper system operation. Messenger also communicates with the climate control system and other systems to optimize guest comfort.
