What is your newest product?
VingCard Elsafe has introduced our brand new “Allure by VingCard” revolutionary “No-lock-on-the-door” RFID hotel locking solution, which provides an integrated in-room solution with a sleek “no hardware” design and customisable functionality.

Why is this product special?
VingCard Elsafe initiated a growing trend toward minimising lock hardware on the guestroom door with the introduction of its Essence by VingCard locking system last year. Created with the hotel designer in mind, Allure by VingCard is a flexible, design-centric hardware and software solution that takes the minimalistic “invisible lock” concept one step further.

With Allure by VingCard, all external hardware on the door has now been completely eliminated through the use of a futuristic signage panel that adds a host of additional benefits and functionality to the locking system.

Why does my hotel need this product?
Since introducing the world’s first electronic hotel door lock and first electronic in-room safe in 1979, VingCard Elsafe has installed products in more than 42,000 properties worldwide, securing in excess of seven million hotel rooms.

Today, our comprehensive product line is comprised of VingCard electronic locking solutions, Elsafe in-room safes, Orion energy management systems, and PolarBar minibars, with VingCard Elsafe leading the industry in advanced locking technologies, including NFC, RFID/RF-Online and ZigBee-based networking solutions.

What benefits will it offer my hotel guests?
The electronic signage panel of the Essence by VingCard offers a higher degree of flexibility in design, as well as the ability to add guest-facing in-room features such as “Do Not Disturb (DND) and “Make Up Room” (MUR) notifications to hotel staff.

This is accomplished through an interactive touch panel located inside the room. An LED light on the door lock alerts staff of the request, so that guests are not disturbed unnecessarily.
