ASSA ABLOY Hospitality to Showcase Future-Proof Innovations in Hotel Security Technology at HITEC 2018

Global leader in hotel security and locking solutions to roll out new advancements, including Vostio, Bluvision, and MIFARE Plus EV1 IC technology.

Stockholm – June 18, 2018 – ASSA ABLOY Hospitality, provider of advanced security solutions for the hospitality industry, will introduce a series of new innovations at HITEC 2018, taking place June 19-21 at the George R. Brown Convention Center in Houston, Texas. Continuous demonstrations of ASSA ABLOY Hospitality’s recently unveiled Vostio and Bluvision solutions will be held at booth #901, along with information provided on enhancements made to RFID door lock security via MIFARE Plus EV1 IC technology.

ASSA ABLOY Hospitality will also take part in HITEC Houston’s Technology Showcase on Tuesday, June 19, in room 370-A from 4 to 5 p.m., where they will demonstrate how the Bluvision solution uses location-based beacon technology to enhance safety, while maximizing guest satisfaction and property efficiency. A Bluetooth Low Energy and cloud-based platform, Bluvision beacons can be used to detect movement in areas that are off limits, while providing the ability to create access badges that provide entry authorization. A platform that also focuses on empowering IoT-based services, Bluvision can further be used to provide guests with personalized offers based on their unique interests and specific location within a property. Staff members can use Bluvision’s asset management functionality to track the location of inventory, and its sensors can be used to monitor temperature conditions in cold rooms.       

“As a recognized leader in hotel security technology worldwide, we always look to present HITEC attendees with the latest technological advancements available to ensure their ability to safeguard guests while providing them with experiences that are memorable and fully satisfying,” Christophe Sut, Executive Vice President and Head of the Global Technologies business unit for ASSA ABLOY Hospitality. “For this year’s North American show, we’re excited to be presenting key decision makers with new and innovative technologies that are expected to re-shape the industry and equip hoteliers with the industry’s highest standard in security.”

ASSA ABLOY Hospitality’s latest innovation, Vostio, is the first maintenance free, cloud-based management system designed to maximize operational efficiency and enhance guest convenience. Accessed through the cloud, Vostio can be managed from virtually anywhere in the world, since local servers are not required. Vostio is GDPR-ready and built on the latest industry standards, ensuring total data confidentiality, integrity and traceability through the use of its encrypted system. As a cloud-based platform, Vostio also receives automatic software updates to ensure that properties are always fully protected against the latest threats and vulnerabilities. Because Vostio does not require on-site servers, hoteliers can avoid time-consuming maintenance issues and eliminate the need for expensive hardware.

During HITEC, ASSA ABLOY Hospitality will also demonstrate MIFARE Plus EV1 IC technology, as well as the latest advancements in RFID-based door lock security. The industry leading platform provides hoteliers with banking grade security features and enhanced usability, while also offering a seamless and cost-effective upgrade path. Other company solutions to be exhibited during HITEC include ASSA ABLOY Hospitality Mobile Access, VingCard Essence and VingCard Allure door locks, as well as Elsafe electronic safes.
