Access Control

Working with a leader in their field, we have designed high security door locks for a number of prestigious hotels in the UK. Here, aesthetics are as important as function, and we've seen our electronics enclosed in traditional materials such as wood and leather.

These locks are based on Mifare (ISO 14443) cards in a sophisticated system that controls access and monitors when a lock has been used by guests, staff and management. In addition to controlling access, the lock maintains an audit trail that can help to reduce crime and prevent theft. Although not one of ours, a similar system helped to convict a murderer in 2010 in Mauritius.

The latest version employs our proprietary low power wireless technology to allow security to be managed throughout a hotel directly from the front desk.
