STOCKHOLM – ASSA ABLOY Global Solutions, a leading provider of advanced security technology for the hospitality industry, has announced the successful implementation of several of its innovative security and guest experience-enhancing platforms by Hotel La Compañía in Panama. A luxury property forming part The Unbound Collection by Hyatt, Hotel La Compañía can now ensure heightened guest safety and convenience with the adoption of VingCard Signature RFID door locks, together with the implementation of Elsafe Zenith safes and Polarbar minibars in each of the hotel’s 88 guestrooms.
While recently opened to guests in 2022, Hotel La Compañía is housed within a historic building dating back to the 17th century that serves as a living museum. Seeking to blend classic elegance with the latest in modern amenities, hotel leadership determined that VingCard Signature RFID would serve as the ideal solution thanks to incorporating industry-leading security technologies into a sleek and attractive door lock design. With VingCard Signature RFID, Hotel La Compañía gains advanced anti keycard cloning abilities that protect against the risk of unauthorized access using the industry’s highest standard in data encryption. By deploying VingCard Signature RFID using online mode, the property is further able to maximize hotel safety by providing staff with real-time alerts to any security-related issues requiring immediate attention. These include notifying employees of a wandering intruder attempting to use a keycard on multiple doors in an effort to gain access. If any keycards are suspected of being inappropriately used, staff can instantly deactivate them before a security threat escalates.
Designed to be a scalable and future-proof door lock solution, VingCard Signature RFID significantly also provides Hotel La Compañía with the ability to effortlessly and affordably upgrade to Mobile Access functionality. Bypassing the need to replace pre-existing lock hardware, VingCard Signature RFID can be activated to provide guests with the ability to use personal devices as a secure digital room key the moment that the demand for such services arises.
“Our hotel is committed to providing each guest with a relaxing stay that always results in obtaining peace of mind, and to achieve this goal it is vital that we adopt the industry’s latest technologies which for hotel security, is undoubtedly provided by ASSA ABLOY Global Solutions,” said Fidel Reyes, General Manager of Hotel La Compañía Panama. “The company benefits from a proven reputation in pushing hotel security and guest service capabilities to new heights and with the exceptional support quality we received, can confidently say that our expectations have been exceeded.”
Maximizing guest security and confidence at Hotel La Compañía is the adoption of Elsafe Zenith electronic in-room safes to protect valuable belongings. In addition to featuring a modern and stylish design, Elsafe Zenith safes come equipped with advanced anti-tamper protocols and are tested to withstand multiple physical break-in attempts.
Boosting guest comfort and convenience within each of the property’s 88 rooms is the Polarbar minibar, a solution designed to address the latest in-room F&B needs of hotels and their guests. Polarbar minibars come in a range of sizes and color options, however, are each equipped with advanced technologies that reduce energy use and that keep operational noise at minimum levels to prevent any lapse in guest comfort.
