Mobile key & keyless entry
A mobile key is a solution that enables authorised devices (staff and guests mobiles and wearables) to access specific secured access points within a property. These solutions (device and door locks) can be powered by various technologies including RFID, Bluetooth, and WiFi depending on the use case. Mobile keys eliminate the need for guests to check-in at the front desk as they come with a mobile or web application, which also, generally, takes care of the administrative processes around check-in. This technology works by generating an encrypted digital key that is sent to guests’ mobile devices which will be configured to work for the length of their stay. Hotel operators, depending on the chosen technology, will be able to make other areas of the property available to guests at specific times and dates (gym, spa, and other outlets), in real-time.
