VingCard Elsafe, a provider of hospitality security and part of the ASSA ABLOY Group, has installed an invisible door lock systems at the 5-star Hotel Bristol in Vienna.
Essence by VingCard offers hotels a more minimalist design by eliminating all external lock hardware on guestroom doors. It encases all electronic components inside the door itself to make the access devices practically invisible to hotel guests.
The VingCard solution blends the locking hardware into the hotel décor, hiding the locking components from the user and enabling designers to align the guestroom doors with the current trend toward a more residential look in hotel design, without compromising security in any way.
VingCard Elsafe’s suite of locking systems feature contactless access control via RFID encoded communication and secure anti-cloning software. Additionally, VingCard Elsafe RFID solutions are designed to be easily adapted to NFC technology which will enable travelers to use mobile devices as room keys. Both communication protocols are compatible with Essence by VingCard locks.
In addition to the aesthetic benefits for hoteliers, Essence by VingCard also minimizes several other operational challenges inherent to guestroom locking hardware, such as integration, installation and maintenance.
Essence by VingCard is also compatible with VingCard Elsafe’s patented VISIONLINE system, a proprietary wireless networking platform that connects standalone electronic locks and other guestroom devices and systems, via a central property server.
