VingCard Elsafe, provider of hospitality security and part of ASSA ABLOY Group, has been selected by Grand Hyatt San Francisco to provide a complete package of VingCard Elsafe solutions for installation as part of the renovation of its 659 guestrooms.
The completed renovation of the 38-story Union Square hotel features the addition of VingCard’s Orion energy management system, Signature RFID locks, and Elsafe‘s Infinity II electronic in-room safes, all powered by the VISIONLINE wireless online access management system.
The installation of VingCard Elsafe’s Signature RFID locks enable simple, contactless guestroom entry, and communicate with VISIONLINE by VingCard to give hotel staff a real-time view of guestroom access attempts for quick security response in the event of an intruder, or to notify guests if a door is left ajar.
The system is also designed to be easily adapted to Near Field Communication (NFC) which will enable travelers to use their mobile phones as room keys and could allow guests to go straight to their rooms upon arrival.
Additionally, the wireless management system integrates seamlessly with Elsafe’s Infinity II electronic safes so that hotel management can remotely view a safe’s locking status, enabling them to notify departing guests if they have forgotten to empty the safe.
As part of a program being piloted by Hyatt Hotels, loyal guests will be given an RFID-enabled loyalty keycard that they can reuse on each visit to the property and allow them to bypass check-in.
