White Lodging implements Kaba RFID guest door locks at 30 properties

White Lodging selected Kaba's Saflok Quantum and RT RFID guestroom door locks for more than 30 Marriott, Hilton, Hyatt, IHG, and other flagged properties. Installation began in fourth quarter 2013 with completion in 2014. The current agreement covers 30 existing properties and we expect to add a number of additional Kaba properties in 2014 and 2015, both existing and new construction.

"We are replacing our non-PMS-interfaced magstripe locks with the latest fully interfaced RFID locks,” said Thomas Riegelman, VP of engineering & facilities management for White Lodging. “We are also planning to implement a number of systems that are integrated with the property's guestroom energy management system to maximize guest service and energy savings."

White Lodging has standardized on RFID lock systems for its replacement systems and for all new construction. "Any time you manage a large portfolio of properties, there is always a need for locks to be changed out and upgraded," Riegelman said.
