We’ve all been there: that sinking feeling when you reach into your pocket for a door key and it isn’t there. The desperate patting down of all other possible pockets. Often, you find the key, but when you don’t, it’s always at the most inconvenient time. It’s dark. It’s late. It’s raining. It’s not even your key.
If you’re in the hospitality business, you’ll know, better than anyone, the trouble lost keys cause. You get the guests who have genuinely misplaced their room keys, but you’ll also experience those who simply forget to hand the keys back in when they leave. Despite promising to drop the keys into the post, somehow, they never show up.
Every night porter or proprietor dreads the guest returning late to a room keyless (and clueless as to where the key may be) because someone needs to sort the problem there and then. It’s time-consuming. It’s expensive and It can leave rooms you could let out of action, reducing occupancy rates and income potential. Instead of the profits being in your books, it’s the local on-call locksmith whose business is thriving.
The solution to this problem is remarkably straightforward. We offer two types of locks which remove the need for traditional keys.
The M Series Digital Door Lock
Whether you operate an Airbnb, Short Term Let or B&B, the M Series lock makes temporary access easy. Every aspect is fully controllable – without calling the locksmith – and the locks can be operated using code, card, fingerprint or mobile phone. Programming is quick and simple. Even better, the system is very cost effective. The cost of a lost keycard is nothing when compared to the cost of a traditional key, and you can solve the guest’s access issues in no time.
The Confidant RFID Lock
Perfect for small hotels and a real boon for larger establishments, the Confidant is a robust lock operated by reliable RFID technology. Every door can be centrally controlled, every operation recorded. It works beautifully with guests’ mobiles and eliminates the need for guests to check-in. It’s sleek and stylish, but it’s very tough and its battery life is up to 3 years.
Two solutions, one huge benefit
Both the Confidant and M Series locks are practical, secure and robust, designed specifically for situations where short-term access needs to be granted and carefully controlled. But perhaps the benefit your staff will find most useful is the convenience. Lost keys are no longer a time consuming, expensive and painful problem.
