Access Control

Hotel guests can go keyless

SALTO’s AElement RFID lock now supports the company’s JustIN Mobile technology. The access product company says this offers hotel guests a keyless experience through mobile access.

By integrating AElement locks and mobile access, SALTO Hospitality makes it possible for guests and hotel staff to use their mobile devices as a key, giving them secure access to certain areas of the hotel, an entire property or multiple locations. SALTO’s JustIN Mobile app supports mobile credentials, providing hotels managers with control over access rights, making the check-in process faster, according to the firm.

SALTO Systems Hospitality access solutions’ Vice President, Rob Zijl, says: “Guests’ demand for the use of smartphones and apps as part of their hotel experience is increasing steeply. More and more major hotel chains as well as individual boutique hotels are embracing this smart technology. With AElement, we extend this technology, combining the design of a stylish lock with the latest and most advanced access control technology.”

The first version of AElement locks using contactless RFID have seen thousands of hotels install this lock model in their properties as used by millions of guests. An update of hardware was necessary, the product firm says. The JustIN Mobile app communicates via the cloud and enables hotel guests to receive their room key online, anywhere.

The latest versions of our AElement electronic locks also now come with Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE). This feature allows users to lock and unlock the doors, using their phone as the key with the help of JustIN Mobile.

The BLE technology gives guests the choice of two technologies to open doors if they wish. The JustIN Mobile app is secure the developers add as keys cannot be duplicated, unlike mechanical keys. The encrypted data transfer uses SSL (Secure Socket Layer) AES 128 bit encryption opening procedures, for secure transmission.
