Gaylord Palms installs Kaba networked locks

The Gaylord Palms Resort & Convention Center took secure access to a new level when the full-service property converted to Kaba Saflok MT RFID electronic door locks. Kaba’s locks interface with property management and energy management systems. Gaylord Palms is located minutes from the Orlando area's family entertainment attractions and premier golf clubs.
Gaylord Palms specifically sought out online networked locks that interface with its INCOMM by Honeywell thermostats and INNCOM property network. “The lock alerts security officers when a door is left ajar for too long or a lock is not working,” said Bill Goeller, director of engineering for Gaylord Palms. “We can tell when people enter a room and when it is empty. The online network creates a more secure environment for guests.”
The Kaba install team converted 1,406 guest door locks in seven days. "The team coordinated with our housekeeping crew to have rooms back in inventory quickly,” Goeller said. “Then they moved on to secure 400,000 square feet of meeting space with Saflok RFID electronic locks. We also instituted a key-recycle program that reduces costs."
Another important decision factor for Gaylord Palms was Kaba’s mobile readiness when the property decides to implement mobile access locks. All Kaba RFID door locks shipped today are mobile-access iOS and Android compatible. The locks use a cloud-based mobile access system and BLE (Bluetooth Low Energy) for a seamless, reliable, highly secure guest experience.
