“We selected Saflok RT BLE-enabled locks to operate with dormakaba's mobile access solution,” Zöetry Paraiso de la Bonita GM Ankara Angulo said. “The OpenKey app allows guests to easily open their room doors, with just their cell phones. The OpenKey and dormakaba teams worked well together to complete the installation across our entire resort in just three days.”

dormakaba's mobile access solution is a secure, end-to-end mobile credential application utilizing Bluetooth low energy. It may be seamlessly integrated with brand loyalty apps and chain technology infrastructures, as well as third party mobile integrator apps.
