The Lodge at Spruce Peak in Stowe, Vt., has installed dormakaba’s Saflok Quantum Bluetooth Low-Energy-enabled radio frequency ID electronic door locks. 
 
“Saflok’s Quantum electronic locks work very well for Lodge at Spruce Peak,” said Dan Rich, director of engineering at the hotel, in a statement. “It is a very secure system, and the convenience and reliability of dormakaba’s BLE-enabled RFID system is perfect for our guests. We use dormakaba’s RFID locks on entry doors, guestrooms, garage doors and other perimeter access points.”
 
The Lodge at Spruce Peak is a condo hotel with many ownership units. The property’s guests rely on dormakaba’s RFID access, while owners prefer to use dormakaba mobile access. “Our mobile app is ideal for our owners,” Rich said. “They can enter their unit quickly when it is not being rented by using dormakaba’s BLE mobile access to bypass the front desk. This lets owners enter their unit with their handheld’s dormakaba mobile access credential.” 
 
The Lodge at Spruce Peak has approximately 300 units made up of the Lodge, Village Townhomes and homes. “Since we are a sport-focused destination in the winter we provide owners with plastic RFID coded keyring medallions to carry in place of a room keycard,” Rich said. “Dormakaba’s lock equipment looks great on our doors and we can audit door locks and guest keys to verify room access if there is a question.”
