Armenia’s Second Hyatt-branded Hotel Fully Equipped With ASSA ABLOY Hospitality Solutions Newly opened Hyatt Place Jermuk features VingCard Signature RFID locks, Elsafe electronic safes, PolarBar minibars and Vision System Software August 10, 2015 – ASSA ABLOY Hospitality has implemented a full range of its industry leading product solutions at the second Hyatt-branded hotel in Armenia, the Hyatt Place Jermuk. Centered in a mountain resort town known for its thermal water spas and hot springs, the new Hyatt Place Jermuk provides guests with hospitality in a smartly designed, high-tech and contemporary environment, focusing on blending guests’ personal and professional lives while traveling. The landmark project includes the implementation of the VingCard Vision system by ASSA ABLOY Hospitality, a flexible locking-system management software platform with touch-screen technology, as well as VingCard Signature RFID contactless electronic door locks, which provide Hyatt Place Jermuk guests with the highest standard in guestroom security and convenience. In addition, the property’s rooms feature the ultra-secure Sentinel 41 digital safes. Adding to guest convenience, ASSA ABLOY Hospitality’s PolarBar minibars have also been installed. These advanced and stylish minibars are built with low energy consumption and silent absorption technology, making them not only guest-friendly, but also cost-effective and energy efficient. Elevators at the Hyatt Place Jermuk are equipped with Multi-Output Controller (MOC) RFID, which is designed to fit into elevator panels and can be operated off or online through Vision. This further increases guest security by limiting access to the upper floors to registered guests. "We have designed every aspect of the Hyatt Place brand with today's traveler in mind,” said Peter Fulton, group president for Europe, Middle East, Africa and Southwest Asia, Hyatt. “As the company continues to grow the brand strategically and thoughtfully in key markets around the world, Hyatt Place Jermuk will offer a new choice to future and existing Hyatt guests." With the advantages of Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) technology becoming increasingly apparent to hoteliers and guests alike, the Hyatt Place Jermuk has equipped their 92 guest rooms in Jermuk’s city center with ASSA ABLOY Hospitality’s VingCard Signature Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) locks, offering state-of-the-art design for user-friendly, intuitive guest interaction along with anti-cloning technology that provides extra protection against keycard cloning. The Vision system combines power and flexibility, utilizing a Windows®-based software platform to provide flexible access management control that is far more powerful than the fixed hierarchical structures of many other hotel lock systems, allowing management to control access to every door on the property. The Vision system offers a range of possibilities to choose from, including the ability to integrate with existing PMS workstations and servers, a specially designed Vision touchscreen workstation, or any other Windows®-based workstation.
