VingCard Elsafe Reveals Revolutionary Way for Hotels to "Go Green" and Ensure Guest Comfort


DALLAS 14/jun – Coming in just two weeks at HITEC 2010, VingCard Elsafe, the global leader in hospitality security, will once again redefine the hospitality security industry when it unveils its next evolution of wireless solutions. The new energy-saving product offers a cost-effective solution to help hoteliers save money, develop “green” initiatives and ensure guest comfort and satisfaction.

The new solution is built on a flexible platform, allowing hoteliers to add on features and benefits in the future, and was designed to operate independently or in conjunction with the VISIONLINE, VingCard’s wireless radio-frequency RF-online electronic locking system for hotels, offering the same adaptability and reliability that VingCard is known for throughout the industry.

“We are always working to improve our technology in order to make it easier for hoteliers to meet the needs of their highest priority – their guests’ comfort and peace of mind,” said Rune Venas, president ASSA ABLOY Hospitality, Inc. in North America. “Our latest wireless innovation offers hoteliers a convenient way to meet hotel standards while providing the ultimate comfort and convenience of their guests.”

VingCard Elsafe debuts its new product on Tuesday, June 22 at 10:00 a.m. in Booth #1017 at the 2010 Hospitality Industry Technology Exposition and Conference in Orlando, Florida.

VingCard Elsafe will also showcase VISIONLINE, the wireless online locking solution that uses RF-online communication capabilities to eliminate the need for guests to travel to and from guestrooms, handling tasks like reprogramming individual locks and identifying and changing low batteries, as well as the need for a guest to take time and effort to return to the front desk to change a room or extend his or her stay. Currently operating in more than 40,000 rooms worldwide, with additional rooms going online each day, VISIONLINE is a cost-effective solution for properties to facilitate reliable two-way wireless communication between standalone electronic locks and the property’s host security and PMS systems, allowing hoteliers to provide efficient, reliable security to their guests while adapting to the specific needs of the property.

VingCard Elsafe is the world leader in developing locking systems for the hospitality industry, offering userfriendly security systems that meet the unique operational needs of hotels and resorts.
