A newly opened property in Greece, Onoma Hotel, adopted contactless digital key experience for health, safety and security.
Catering predominantly to millennial travellers, Onoma Hotel recognised that it needed to adopt services that in addition to enhancing guest safety, also addressed expectations for instant self-service.
The hotel turned to ASSA ABLOY Global Solutions and its Certified Partner, Eurotel Hospitality, to deploy Mobile Access with its contactless check-in and digital key abilities.
By deploying Mobile Access along with VingCard Essence door locks and VingCard Allure interactive door lock panels, the property’s guests can use personal devices to check-in without having to wait in line at the front desk or risk coming into contact with germs. Once checked-in, guests then automatically receive a digital key which at Onoma Hotel, is issued by Eurotel Hospitality. With a waving of their device in proximity to the appropriate Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) reader, guests can enter their room.
Mobile Access also utilises advanced security protocols to prevent unauthorized access. Featuring Seos technology, Mobile Access uses secure communication channels to deliver encrypted digital key and room number information to guest devices. The data is then securely stored within a digital strongbox located within a guest-facing mobile app until a guest presents their device to the appropriate lock. A secure communication channel is again used to transmit digital key data to the BLE reader in order to grant guestroom entry.
