iRis, ASSA ABLOY collaborate on mobile key

iRiS Software Systems and ASSA ABLOY Hospitality have joined forces in order to provide access to the new ASSA ABLOY hospitality mobile access solution through the iRiS interactive guest services application. It is available to hotels for use in enhancing guest communication and services via their personal mobile devices.

Through the new technology partnership, hotel guests will now be able to use their smartphones as digital keys to their assigned guestrooms. The solution will soon be available to any hotel in the world, whether independent or chain.

The new mobile key feature uses a close integration of ASSA ABLOY hospitality mobile access with the iRiS mobile valet application, a user-friendly guest-facing solution that allows the hotel's guests to interact with all of the hotel's services and facilities in their preferred language directly on their smartphone. From in-room dining to room controls, from restaurant bookings to housekeeping requests, guests can easily access hotel amenities.

Hotel Optimization Part 3 | January 27, 2021

With 2020 behind us and widespread vaccine distribution on the horizon, the second half of the new year is looking up, but for Q1 (and most likely well into Q2) we’re very much still in the thick of what has undeniably been the lowest point of the pandemic. What can you be doing now to power through and set yourself up for a prosperous 2021 and beyond? Join us at Part 3 of Hotel Optimization – A Virtual Event on January 27 from 10am – 1:05pm ET for expert panels focused on getting you back to profitability.


After checking in with iRiS mobile valet, guests will be given the option of programming their phone as a door key. They will then receive a unique PIN code, as well as generate the 'Open Door' option. By using this option, their smartphone will begin broadcasting the key via the ASSA ABLOY hospitality mobile access SDK integrated to mobile valet and display an animation to the users of the required action. Guests will then just have to touch their device to the VingCard lock, removing the need for physical keys or passcodes.
