Ælement RFID lock integrates JustIN Mobile technology
Thursday 24 November 2016
SALTO’s stylish Ælement RFID lock now supports the company’s JustIN Mobile technology, offering hotel guests a convenient and keyless experience with the help of mobile access.
By integrating Ælement locks and mobile access, SALTO Hospitality makes it possible for guests and hotel staff to use their mobile devices as a key, redefining their experience and giving them secure access to certain areas of the hotel, an entire property or multiple locations around the globe.
SALTO’s JustIN Mobile app supports mobile credentials, providing hotels managers with better control over access rights, making the check-in process faster and more secure, and providing a truly warm welcome.
SALTO Systems Hospitality access solutions’ Vice President, Rob Zijl, agrees. "Guest’s 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 Ælement, we extend this technology, combining the design of a stylish lock with the latest and most advanced access control technology."
The first version of Ælement locks using RFID contactless technology has been a great success: thousands of hotels have installed this lock model in their properties and millions of guests have used it. Time and technology wait for no one, however, so to keep up with our latest innovations such as the JustIN Mobile app an update of our hardware was necessary. The JustIN Mobile app communicates securely via the Cloud and enables hotel guests to receive their room key online, anytime and anywhere.
The latest versions of our Ælement electronic locks are also now equipped with Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE). This additional feature allows users to lock and unlock the doors, using their phone as the key with the help of JustIN Mobile.
The BLE technology provides the perfect complement to traditional contactless access cards, giving guests the choice of two technologies to open doors if they wish, and making the best of the latest developments in terms of hospitality technology and mobile application.
And the JustIN Mobile app is completely secure as keys cannot be duplicated, unlike mechanical keys or some low-security RFID technologies. The encrypted data transfer uses SSL (Secure Socket Layer) AES 128 bit encryption opening procedures, to ensure secure transmission.
By integrating Ælement’s design with the benefits of SALTO's Bluetooth Low Energy platform the SALTO Hospitality solution delivers a richer, smarter hospitality experience for guests and further business opportunities for hotels.
