SALTO Systems to Introduce BLE-Enabled Reader

SALTO Systems, a manufacturer of electronic access-control solutions, has announced that it will showcase its hospitality products, including the new Bluetooth Low Energy AElement Fusion reader, at the annual Hospitality Industry Technology Exposition & Conference (HITEC), being held on June 26-28 in Toronto.

"SALTO has a great lineup of technologically advanced electronic lock solutions for HITEC," said Rob Zijl, SALTO Systems' VP of hospitality-access solutions, in a prepared statement. "We're particularly excited to launch the AElement Fusion—a small, customizable light ring reader that offers a discreet electronic lock for hotels looking to deploy electronic access control that is stylish and innovative."

SALTO Systems' other featured products at HITEC will include systems designed to help hospitality installations streamline operations from back-of-house to the front desk. The company's hospitality solutions exist for virtually every touchpoint that can affect the experience of the hotel brand and create unique keyless experiences for guests.

AElement Fusion is a new electronic lock with a sleek reader and an interactive light ring that illuminates when access credentials are presented, providing a minimalistic design that blends with any hotel décor. The AElement Fusion is compatible with RFID, Near Field Communication (NFC) and Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) technologies that can be integrated with mobile applications, including SALTO Systems' JustIN Mobile.

JustIN Mobile is intended to replace the need for a physical access hotel room card, by securely sending a room key over the air from SALTO's ProAccess SPACE management software to an iOS- or Android-based device. A guest's smartphone sends a signal to open his or her hotel room door's electronic locks via BLE. JustIN Mobile can improve the guest experience by eliminating the need to physically check in or out at the front desk, while streamlining overall hotel operations.

SALTO's XS4 access-control platform combines electronic door components, peripherals and software, providing wireless networked access-control solutions for hospitality management. The company's ANSI-compatible XS4 Mini's compact design enables security professionals to upgrade and replace mechanical-key-operated door locks with electronic access control. The XS4 Mini features stainless steel construction and Mifare-DESFire and BLE technologies, allowing it to work with conventional smart cards and SALTO's JustIN Mobile app.
