Hyatt Regency Istanbul goes contactless
Guests at the Hyatt Regency Istanbul Atakoy will be using a security access solution by ASSA ABLOY Hospitality. The hotel has chosen to equip its 284 guest rooms with VingCard Signature RFID door locks, and elevator access readers. While enabling guests to gain access by waving keycards within proximity of a reader, Signature RFID also provides anti-cloning technology through its encryption platform that ensures against unauthorized access.
Using Signature RFID in conjunction with Visionline, team members at Hyatt Regency Istanbul also circumvent the need to manually encode keycards. Lost or stolen keycards can also be cancelled remotely to further limit any potential security issue. Visionline additionally provides properties with remote audit trail tracking abilities, ensuring that hoteliers have detailed and readily available data in the event of a guest dispute.
