A new destination hotel near Canterbury, Kent, has chosen a SALTO electronic access control system to provide advanced security management for its luxurious accommodation.
The Cave Hotel and Golf Resort, has 40 bedrooms, two restaurants, one bar, a gym and swimming pool and a state-of-the-art penthouse.
Stuart Sentance, designer and project manager for Cave Hotel and Golf Resort, said: “We wanted a stylish product that was not only technologically cutting edge but provided reliable wire-free access control while complimenting the hotel’s unique decorative style.
“SALTO’s new Aelement Fusion solution plus two associated wall readers give us that. They eliminate obtrusive lock hardware on the door as all the electronic components are actually inside the door itself, making room security virtually invisible.
“We’ve now installed 52 of these smart locks in an attractive black finish on our guest rooms, main entrance and staff entrance doors.
“All combine stand-alone, battery-powered electronic lock technology and SALTO’s Virtual Network (SVN) data-on-card wireless technology with online, real-time monitoring and mobile access technology with NFC & BLE capabilities, the latter enabling our guests to use their smartphones as keys if they so choose.”
Darren Keating, hospitality business development manager for SALTO Systems, said: “When it came to providing guest security for this new hotel careful thought was required.
“As well as traditional hotel stays, Cave also specialises in weddings, corporate functions and special events, so making sure guest rooms were secured by using the latest high technology products was an important consideration.
“However our focus was not just on the sale but also on providing the customer with extensive advice to make sure the solution recommended was both viable and cost effective. This meant advocating a solution that would be visually attractive and technologically competent to meet with the design ethos of the hotel.”
“We’re delighted to have supplied our class leading access control solution for one of the coolest new properties on the hospitality scene.
“The hotel has full control over who can access what, when and where enabling Stuart and his team to maintain high levels of security whilst ensuring a secure and accessible environment for both guests and staff alike.”
