Stockholm – May 7, 2019 – ASSA ABLOY Global Solutions has announced the successful implementation of VingCard Essence door locks at the Pangea Pod Hotel, a recently opened property based in Whistler, Canada, that provides its guests with the latest in comfort and convenience while ensuring privacy and low pricing via its unique pod-based design. With guests able to check themselves in using a self-service kiosk, the presence of Essence door locks works to extend feelings of enhanced convenience throughout the premises as guests either enter the building or attempt to access certain areas, while always maintaining the highest security standards.
“As Canada’s first capsule-based concept, Pangea is all about demonstrating how comfort, convenience, high-end design but also affordability and security can all exist together within a single location, and Essence door locks play a vital role in allowing us to achieve this,” says Russell King, Co-founder of the Pangea Pod Hotel. “Using the Essence door lock simply made the most sense for us. Not only do its features reflect our goal of giving our guests more control over their stay (not to mention keeping them safe), but its ability to evolve as needs change helps to realize our ambitions of continuing to serve as a cutting-edge establishment into the long-term future.”
Designed as a future-proof solution, all Essence door locks come Mobile Access-ready. This allows hoteliers to later upgrade to providing guests with the ability to use personal smart devices as digital room access keys, without the need for any additional equipment purchases or installations. Likewise prioritizing guest safety as much as convenience, Mobile Access by ASSA ABLOY Global Solutions leverages advanced encryption technology to safeguard digital key and room number information from data theft and unauthorized access. Once generated, such data is transmitted to guest devices using a secure communications channel and is then stored inside a digital vault within a hotel’s app. Once a guest presents their device within proximity to the appropriate guestroom lock, digital key information is again transmitted via a secure channel in order to ensure that data is not able to be compromised at any step of the process.
