VingCard Elsafe’s VISIONLINE Locking System Selected by 5-Star Siam Kempinski Bangkok /Other/VingCardElsafe/Image%20Archive/.com%20Archive/Press%20Releases/PR%202011/Images/Star%20Siam%20Kempinski.jpg Thailand’s Newest Luxury Hotel Implements The 5-star Siam Kempinski Hotel Bangkok, adjacent to the Siam Paragon lifestyle mall, features hundreds of Thai art works commissioned by Kempinski Hotels & Resorts exclusivelt for the luxury property. All guestrooms look onto large tropical landscaped gardens with extensive water features and three saltwater swimming pools. Hotel amenities include four restaurants and lounges, a cigar court and Kempinski The Spa. Modern Thai aesthetics dominate the dramatic marble lobby that features two spiral staircases and a multi-tiered fountain. Such an opulent hotel demands the most advanced locking system on the market, making VISIONLINE by VingCard the obvious choice. “The wireless online capabilities of VISIONLINE mean a secure locking system that is extraordinarily efficient and reliable, ensuring that operations at Siam Kempinski run completely smoothly,” says Vegard Prytz, vice president and regional director of Asia Pacific for ASSA ABLOY Hospitality. “More than just a physical security product, VISIONLINE gives hoteliers a real-time 360-degree view over the entire locking system. “ VISIONLINE helps guests benefit not only from the impeccable security for which VingCard is renowned, but also in more subtle ways—remote monitoring, for instance, guarantees that guests will never be inconvenienced by a lock that has run out of battery. A remote audit trail and live card-tracking capabilities provide valuable intelligence in the event of a guest dispute. And optional advanced communication functionality keeps hotel management constantly in the loop regarding security issues via automated text message or email. Built on the ZigBee Standard ISO 802.15.4 high-security open platform—the only wireless, highly-secured and open standards-based platform to address the unique needs of low-power monitoring and access-control network applications—VISIONLINE offers increased reliability and performance at an affordable cost. Operating on a reliable and secure platform like ZigBee also enables smooth interface and integration opportunities for other online devices, including safes, energy management systems and minibars.
