New Sentinel Range from Elsafe Elsafe, the world’s leading supplier of electronic safes to the hospitality market for over 20 years, has announced the introduction of The Sentinel Series, a new line of electronic in-room safes designed with ground-breaking modular technology. Ideally suited for small to mid-level hotel properties, Sentinel Series safes were especially designed to provide a practical and affordable in-room safe solution for that growing market segment, while maintaining the industry-leading strength and durability of Elsafe's popular Infinity Collection. Introduced last year at the 2000 International Hotel, Motel & Restaurant Show in New York, the Infinity in-room safe has become extremely popular with upscale properties who appreciate its unique, contemporary design and unprecedented security features, as well as modular electronics that allow easy upgrades to new and emerging access technologies. Utilizing the same streamlined design and heavy-gauge steel construction, the Sentinel Series continues the modular concept with a practical range of features that fit into the budgets of a much wider range of properties. Included in the Sentinel Series is the company's first smart card-operated safe. The most affordable of the Series, the Sentinel SmartKeySM model is intended as an alternative to outdated key safes. Unlike metal keys, the keycards can be quickly and easily replaced if lost by a guest. In addition, the safe can be upgraded to digital operation with a simple electronic addition and replacement of the modular front panel. This makes future property upgrades much more affordable and convenient, since the entire safe does not have to be replaced or reinstalled. Three new digitally operated models are also included in the series. Like most Elsafes, the Standard, Plus and Advanced Sentinel models are operated with a 4-digit PIN code selected by the guest. Each comes standard with a carefully selected combination of features that can also be easily upgraded all the way to Infinity level. All safes in the Elsafe Sentinel Series feature heavy-gauge bent steel construction, a revolutionary locking mechanism with auto-relock function, anti-tamper labyrinths, and extended solid-steel bolt hinges that make physical break-in virtually impossible.
