At The Mereside Hotel in Douglas on the Isle of Man, electronic handle sets have been fitted. The products are now also being installed at the HQ Bar & Restaurant’s two other four-star independent hotels, The Glen Mona and The Rosslyn.
Mul-T-Lock SMARTair is a wire free product designed to upgrade mechanically locks into fully functional access control security, with the makers say minimal modification to doors and premises.
Described as an all in one access control system, Mul-T-Lock says that its product removes the need for expensive data cabling and re-wiring and simply operates from a unique management card, so user fobs can be added or removed as required. The electronic handle sets were initially recommended to HQ Bar by local Mul-T-Lock dealers MC Locksmiths Services Limited, to improve key management at the Mereside Hotel. Angela McCluskey, owner of HQ Bar & Restaurant chain says: “The installation of the SMARTair electronic handle sets came about as we were discussing our key management issues at The Mereside Hotel with MC Locksmiths. When guests leave and forget to return keys, alongside the obvious security vulnerabilities on site, it becomes difficult to run the hotel efficiently. We have worked with MC Locksmiths Services Limited a long time and trust their judgement, so when they recommended switching to an access control system as stylish and cost effective as SMARTair, we had little hesitation. The system is fantastic; it was installed effortlessly and is really easy to use, even for those staff who are not computer literate. We arranged for our other hotels to be upgraded and would have no issue in recommending SMARTair to other independent hotel operators.”
Mark Corrin of MC Locksmiths Services Limited added: “SMARTair electronic handle sets real advantage over its competition is how easy it is to install, programme and maintain, alongside its stylish finish. These are all critical features to offer a hotel environment where any maintenance work has to be carried out with due care not to affect the daily operations, or the guest experience. With it being supplied by Mul-T-Lock, globally renowned for offering premium security, the end result is a high performance access control management system for owners, staff and guests’ peace of mind.”
Steve Ross, Managing Director of Mul-T-Lock added: “Mul-T-Lock SMARTair is cleverly designed as an all one wire free access control system, perfectly suited for the professional locksmith to install. Its ability to deliver flexibility, convenience and usability, wrapped in an aesthetically appealing design, and offered at a substantially lower cost than traditional integrated access control systems, ensures HQ Bars and similar independent hotel chains can instantly meet the security demands of today’s ever changing hospitality environment.”
