Tribal owned hospitality and gaming corporation deploys enhanced access control capabilities combined with Mobile Access at locations in Niagara Falls and Salamanca, New York.
STOCKHOLM – Assa Abloy Global Solutions, a leading provider of advanced security technology for the hospitality industry, has been credited with increasing both guest safety and convenience with the implementation of several of its advanced technologies at Seneca Allegany Resort & Casino and Seneca Niagara Resort & Casino. Now equipped with VingCard door locks enabled with Mobile Access and supported by the latest in online-based access management, the two resort and casino locations are able to achieve the industry’s highest standard in property security while still maintaining a seamless and hassle-free stay experience for each visiting guest.
Owned and operated by Seneca Gaming Corporation, Seneca Allegany and Seneca Niagara with advanced RFID-based VingCard door locks can significantly protect the safety of guests and staff from the risks of unauthorized room access. Designed using the industry’s latest data encryption protocols, VingCard door locks can prevent guestroom keycards from being cloned which is often a tactic used by those seeking to steal valuable items or otherwise cause harm. While also created to withstand multiple forced entry attempts, VingCard locks nonetheless feature a sleek and attractive appearance that can blend in seamlessly with the interior design of the two casino resorts.
With today’s guests seeking faster and more responsive service, the presence of VingCard locks further allows both properties to provide their guests with the various benefits of Mobile Access. Using just their own personal device and without first having to wait in line at the front desk to check-in, guests staying at either location can instead gain instant and secure access to their guestrooms the very moment they wish to enter. With Mobile Access, the casino resorts can also further enhance building and guest safety thanks to the solution’s incorporation of Assa Abloy’s Seos credential-issuing technology. This advantage means that digital key and room number information are always delivered to guest devices using highly encrypted communication channels. The same high level encryption is again used when a guest presents their device to the appropriate door lock reader, ensuring that only those with legitimate authorization are able to gain room entry.
“Seneca Gaming Corporation always strives to provide our guests an enjoyable and relaxing stay at each of our properties. The peace of mind that comes with enhanced security is consistent with our ongoing commitment to adopting the industry’s latest capabilities in order to meet and exceed our guests’ expectations,” said Kevin Nephew, President & CEO of Seneca Gaming Corporation. “Assa Abloy Global Solutions has both the technology and responsive support needed to create an environment that’s always safe, using advanced solutions that enhance the overall experience at our world-class resorts.”
For both locations, VingCard locks and Mobile Access are supported by Assa Abloy Global Solutions’ online-based access management technology. This significantly provides casino resort staff with additional enhanced security capabilities that further minimize the likelihood or level of damage caused by a potential threat. Features include the ability to receive real-time alerts for any issues requiring immediate attention, such as a door that has been left ajar or a keycard that is being used on multiple doors in an effort to gain access. If a key is suspected of being stolen or used inappropriately, employees can instantly cancel the credential before any harm occurs. The system further features the ability to grant or block off access to specific onsite areas as needed, and by individual key or for certain types of groups. Should a security-related issue take place, staff can additionally access door lock audit trails remotely and in real-time, ensuring that they have ready access to the information they need to make informed decisions on the best course of action.
