OpenKey is a developer of hotel entry mobile applications
Assa Abloy Hospitality has integrated its mobile access keyless entry solution with OpenKey, a developer of hotel entry mobile applications.
Assa Abloy Hospitality general manager software and credentials Eric Thomsen said: “As an innovator of hotel security solutions, we are dedicated to aligning with companies that share our vision of a future where hotels utilize cutting-edge technologies to increase guest and staff security.”
“OpenKey has made waves in the industry by supplying hoteliers with a user-friendly solution to allow guests to enter their room through a mobile application, evolving mobile access into the new standard in hotel access,” he added.
Operating through secure Seos technology, Assa Abloy Hospitality Mobile Access delivers a digitally encrypted key directly to a guest’s smart device, which can be accessed through OpenKey’s mobile application at certain properties. Instead of employing the traditional front desk check in process, guests have the option to check in remotely and enter their room immediately upon arrival by swiping their personal smartphone against a mobile access-compatible lock.
Assa Abloy Hospitality will be able to offer its mobile access solution to additional hotels by integrating it into OpenKey’s guest-facing mobile application. OpenKey’s solution offers the ability to be fully customised to each specific property implementing Assa Abloy Hospitality mobile access, allowing hotels to offer their guests experiences based on their specific brand preferences and onsite offerings.
