• Kaba’s keyless mobile access technology fitted at The Cromwell
• Mobile phone used as hotel room key
• Secure and convenient assignment of access authorizations
Montreal/Las Vegas, February 2, 2015 – Kaba, leading provider of access control solutions for the hotel industry, has installed a mobile access system at The Cromwell in Las Vegas. Cloud-based Kaba keys operate in all hotel rooms, allowing guests to open their room doors with their own mobile phone or device as an alternative to a classic RFID card. The use of Bluetooth Low Energy means that Apple iOS smartphones are supported.
“Kaba’s mobile access system is based on the cloud service set up by security firm Legic Identystems, which is a subsidiary of Kaba. With this ground-breaking Kaba hotel locking system, which opens hotel locks in less than a second, guests can enjoy a completely new and intuitive experience that very much suits The Cromwell’s unique ‘modern meets vintage’ style,” says Alastair Cush, Head of Lodging Global Business Development at Kaba’s ADS Americas Division. Kaba’s mobile access solutions can work together with a choice of technologies, including Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) and Near Field Communications (NFC), so hotel operators can use it – and securely issue and manage access authorizations – in the way that best suits their requirements.
Secure mobile access solutions enable greater convenience
The flexibility of Kaba’s mobile access solutions with mobile phones ensures a guest experience that meets the latest demands. Guests can check in online with their mobile, and then use it during their stay as their very own mobile room key. Kaba’s mobile access authorizations are encrypted in the Kaba system using the Legic IDConnect cloud solution, transferred to the hotel guest, and are only decrypted within the hotel lock of the hotel room. This guarantees secure and convenient access to hotel rooms and other secure areas.
With 188 rooms and suites, The Cromwell is the only standalone boutique hotel located on the Las Vegas Strip. With its prime location on one of the busiest intersections of the Las Vegas Strip – one that welcomes more than 20 million passersby each year – the luxury lifestyle hotel also features a 40,000 square foot casino, hotel lobby bar, lounge, restaurant by Giada De Laurentiis and beach and nightlife venues by Victor Drai.
