Onity to introduce hotel mobile key solution to EMEA

Onity will demonstrate its newly-released DirectKey mobile access solution for the hospitality industry at the Hotel Show 2015 in Dubai. Developed as a cost-effective, secure and easy-to-use mobile-key solution for hotels of any size, the DirectKey system will officially be introduced to Europe, Middle East and Africa  at the Dubai World Trade Centre on Sept. 28-30.

The DirectKey system uses cloud-based key credentialing and Bluetooth® technology, allowing hotel guests to securely download their key to their smartphone through the hotel’s loyalty app for easy access to their assigned room and other access-controlled areas such as parking garages, elevators and fitness centers. The key credentials remain on the phone during their stay, so a network connection is not required to use the mobile key.

With the DirectKey system, hotel IT and brand leaders can customize how mobile-key access integrates into loyalty applications, property management systems, and front-desk processes, so hotels can maintain their brand experience. The DirectKey system uses a door-lock hardware module which employs 128-bit AES encryption technology to complement the security of existing locks.
