Swiss-Belsuites Victoria Park, Auckland, has unveiled a new electronic and mobile locking system implemented throughout all the property’s guest rooms. The collection of 40 luxuriously appointed on, two and three bedroom suites by Swiss-Belhotel enlisted manufacturer and installer ASSA ABLOY Hospitality, the global leader in door opening solutions for the new locking system known as VingCard Allure. The system provides state of the art security while allowing guests to use personal smart devices as secure keys for a true bespoke hotel experience.

Mobile room keys have been a logical step with many people worldwide relying more and more on their mobile phones throughout their travels. The VinCard system offers a sleek design by replacing external hardware from guest room doors with a panel that controls the locking mechanism. This revolutionary mobile key feature also enhances guests’ experience through simplified check-in processes and the convenience of carrying your key on a device people already keep with them.

A digital key is generated for each assigned guest room. The key is encrypted and securely delivered to a guest’s smartphone while also being placed in a secure key vault within the hotel’s own mobile app.
