VingCard Elsafe to Unveil VISIONLINE Wired Platform at HITEC 2013, Further Enhancing Speed and Flexibility /Other/VingCardElsafe/Image%20Archive/.com%20Archive/Press%20Releases/PR%202013/HITECMain.jpg Dallas – June 20, 2013 – VingCard Elsafe, the global leader in hospitality security and part of the ASSA ABLOY Group, announces the launch of the latest enhancement to its flagship VISIONLINE property data communication platform. Known as VISIONLINE Wired, this new option gives hoteliers a more complete view of current property status and more freedom of choice than ever before, by facilitating various installation configurations and allowing for battery-free electronic locks. Offered as an alternative to VingCard’s current VISIONLINE Wireless solution that has become an industry standard in online communications platforms, the new Power-over-Ethernet (PoE) wired installation option provides true real-time communication with the VingCard Elsafe locking system through the property’s existing network. This enhances speed and reliability even further, ensuring that there are no delays in data transfer. In addition, the wired connection eliminates the need for batteries and associated maintenance, enhancing the hotel’s green initiatives and significantly reducing maintenance costs. Since it utilizes the property’s powered Ethernet connections, VISIONLINE Wired is ideal for new-build hotels and extensive renovation projects. VingCard Elsafe’s VISIONLINE Wired solution will be showcased at Booth #801 of HITEC 2013, the world’s largest hospitality technology show, taking place June 24-27 at Minneapolis Convention Center. “Our patented VISIONLINE solution is now even more powerful and flexible than ever before,” says Tim Shea, president of ASSA ABLOY Hospitality. “Since introducing VISIONLINE in 2006 as the world’s first true ZigBee-based wireless online lock solution, it has become that standard by which all other systems are measured. We have continually added new features and functionality to make it not only an extremely efficient and reliable communication platform for our locking systems, but one of the industry’s most revolutionary solutions overall for enhancing property data communications and operations. With this latest evolution of VISIONLINE, we are continuing our tradition of continuous innovation by offering even higher levels of operational efficiency and flexible options that are designed to satisfy any property’s needs.” VISIONLINE Wireless and VISIONLINE Wired are patented networking solutions that eliminate the need for hotel staff to visit guestrooms to physically perform tasks such as reprogramming individual locks and identifying or changing low batteries. VISIONLINE also eliminates the need for guests to return to the front desk to change a room or extend a stay, increasing guest convenience and satisfaction. VingCard Elsafe is the world leader in developing locking systems, electronic in-room safes and energy management solutions for the hospitality industry, offering user-friendly systems that meet the unique operational needs of hotels and resorts.
