This story begins in 1974, when lock maker Tor Sørnes heard that an intruder had attacked his favourite singer in her hotel room. Inspired to help, he resolved to invent a security system that would provide a unique key for every guest. His invention changed the whole lock industry.
Imagine the convenience of being able to open doors
through a digital key stored on your smartphone…
Now you can.
As industry pioneers ASSA ABLOY always led the way – employing innovative technology to make people feel safe and secure wherever they want to go.
ASSA ABLOY Hospitality has products installed in more than 42,000 properties worldwide, securing in excess of 7 million hotel rooms. The company continues to use advanced technology to offer security and peace of mind to both hospitality providers and their guests.
SSA ABLOY Hospitality’s extensive international network covers more than 166 countries.
ASSA ABLOY Hospitality has played an integral part in developing and implementing mobile access technology. A highly advanced mobile phone-based keyless entry solution, ASSA ABLOY Hospitality Mobile Access has already been installed in tens of thousands of guestrooms worldwide.
Powered by Seos®, the first ever multi-platform ecosystem for issuing, delivering or revoking digital keys, properties equipped with Mobile Access can provide guests with the ultimate check-in convenience by allowing them to use personal devices as a room key and bypass the front desk entirely.
As a result, this proven technology solution can provide the added benefits of more streamlined front desk operations and reduced costs to the hotelier.
Three different solutions
You can choose between three variations of the solution depending upon your needs.
This solution is created for hotels with their own app initiatives that want to integrate mobile access into their own apps and back end systems. ASSA ABLOY Hospitality provides a Mobile Access Software Development kit (SDK) together with dedicated onboarding services to facilitate seamless integration.
Third-Party (Certified Partners)
This solution suits hotels that want mobile app functionality beyond access control alone, but don’t yet have their own in-house app initiatives. They can choose a solution from one of ASSA ABLOY’s selected app specialist partners, who through the Certified Partner Program have already integrated the mobile access functionality into their products.
ASSA ABLOY Hospitality Mobile Access App
This is the company’s own developed off-the-shelf solution, which is ready to use. It suits hotels that want to provide basic mobile access solutions to their guests in an easy way. There are no integration or third-party dependencies and two variations of this solution are available.
A. A generic app that is published by ASSA ABLOY Hospitality on App Store and Google Play. Through an administration portal, the hotel can customise their digital key graphics that will then show in a “Passbook” inspired style.
B. ASSA ABLOY Hospitality provides the basic app structure with a Software Development Kit in order for the customer to easily finalise the app with their own look and feel and publish it on App Store/Google Play as their own branded version.
ASSA ABLOY Hospitality offers a wide variety of solutions and products for the hospitality industry. These include VingCard electronic locks, Elsafe in-room safes, Orion energy management system, and Visionline software. Visionline allows your locks to communicate with the server via online radio frequency (RF), eliminating the need to manually encode keycards, cancel staff cards and check battery life. You can find out more about these options by viewing the ASSA ABLOY Hotel Security and Access Solutions brochure.
