Assa Abloy Global Solutions has announced the implementation of its VingCard Essence and VingCard Signature RFID door locks at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Hollywood, Fla. The hotel selected the VingCard Essence to be implemented at its recently opened Guitar Hotel and installing VingCard Signature RFID at The Oasis Tower.
VingCard Essence, installed at the 638-room Guitar Hotel, encases all electronic components within the door itself, leaving only a door handle and radio frequency ID/Bluetooth Low Energy reader visible. As a large-scale resort boasting multiple hotels onsite, the resort further opted to install VingCard Signature RFID as part of the build-out of the 168-guestroom Oasis Tower. Signature RFID is appropriate for both new construction and retrofit projects.
Both VingCard Essence and Signature RFID come equipped with security encryption technology to ensure that only those with authorization are able to gain access to rooms. This includes advanced anti-keycard cloning abilities that minimizes the risk of guest keycard data being stolen in order to create unauthorized keycards. When used in online mode, Essence and Signature RFID can provide additional security-enhancing functionalities such as the ability to receive alerts when someone is attempting to use a keycard on multiple doors. Staff can instantly deactivate keycards that are lost or suspected of being stolen.
VingCard Essence and Signature RFID both offer full mobile access compatibility. Properties with either solution installed are able to activate the feature at any time to provide guests with the ability to use personal devices as a secure guestroom key. The mobile access compatibility of both locks ensures that hoteliers can instantly adapt without the need to undergo complex integrations or replace any existing hardware.
