Two Residence Inns install Assa Abloy door locks

Two newly opened Residence Inn by Marriott properties operated by Sunridge Hotel Group have implemented Assa Abloy Global Solutions' VingCard Signature RFID locks equipped with mobile access technology and supported by the Visionline access-management system. 

The VingCard Signature RFID locks use security encryption technology to prevent risks associated with unauthorized entry such as keycard cloning. The system also works with Marriott's Bonvoy app to allow contactless check-in and digital keys at both the Residence Inn by Marriott La Quinta, Calif. and Residence Inn by Marriott Phoenix West/Avondale. 

At both the Residence Inn by Marriott La Quinta, Calif., and Residence Inn by Marriott Phoenix West/Avondale, the implementation of Visionline also helps staff members maintain responsive and secure operations. For example, hotel staff can receive real-time alerts for any potential security threats requiring immediate attention. This includes alerts for a wandering intruder attempting to gain access on multiple doors using a stolen keycard as well as for a door that has been left ajar. Further enhancing guest convenience is the hotel staff’s ability to use Visionline to extend guest stays or issue room reassignments without requiring a front desk visit.

“There are many factors that go into selecting a hotel lock solution that meets with current industry expectations, including not just enhanced security but also the ability to provide a more enjoyable, visually appealing and hassle-free hotel stay, which Assa Abloy Global Solutions excels at and which is why we continue to value our relationship with them,” said Don Brooksby, director of technology at Sunridge Hotel Group. “Much more than just a hardware provider, Assa Abloy Global Solutions also comes highly recommended by us for its ability to simplify operations with intuitive tools that eliminate any potential complications or guess work, while its responsive support services provide us with full confidence that any suddenly arising issue can be swiftly resolved.”
