VingCard has completed the installation of its NFC-enabled Signature contactless electronic door locks at the Valentines Resort and Marina on Harbour Island in the Bahamas.
With the technology, the Valentines Resort and Marina can now offer remote check-in to guests with NFC-compatible cell phones. After making a reservation, guests receive a booking confirmation number, room number and room key access code through an encrypted Short Message System (SMS) to their NFC-enabled cell phone, allowing them to bypass the check-in line upon arrival and go straight to the room, where their NFC-enabled cell phones will unlock the door.
The system, which is compatible with the three leading ISO standards–ISO 14443A/MiFare, ISO 14443B, ISO 15693–also features a 600-event audit trail and anti-cloning software.
The system will also send automated key card updates to the front desk, which allow staff to stay up-to-date on guest information and respond more quickly to guest’s needs, according to VingCard.
