Delta Hotels by Marriott Implements ASSA ABLOY RFID Door Locks

ASSA ABLOY Global Solutions has announced the implementation of its VingCard Signature RFID locks at the Delta Hotels by Marriott Dallas Allen, a newly constructed modern luxury property located in Allen, Texas. The decision by Altera Development, the owner of the property, to adopt ASSA ABLOY's RFID-based door locks was based on its ability to provide high-security technologies, the company reports.

With operations and strategic partnerships in more than 166 countries, ASSA ABLOY Global Solutions was able to meet the hotel's local support needs during the implementation, providing expedient installation and staff training. By relying on local support, Altera Development was able to conform to regional regulations and requirements, as well as provide a swift resolution to any subsequent troubleshooting issues.

"From pricing to its unmatched support availability and level of technological expertise, ASSA ABLOY Global Solutions is in a league of its own when it comes to meeting all of a hotel's needs, and selecting the company over competing providers was a straightforward decision to make," said Mike Kennedy, a principal at Altera Development, in a prepared statement. "With the success that we experienced in installing VingCard Signature RFID door locks, we are fully confident in our hotel's ability to provide guests and staff with the highest quality of security that the industry has to offer at all times."

With the installation of VingCard Signature RFID locks, the property has incorporated anti-cloning encryption technology to prevent unauthorized keycard cloning. The locks' RFID abilities ensure that guest keycards function properly, by eliminating the risk of misreads or inadvertently erased keycard data. The system is mobile-access-ready and enables users to activate mobile key functionality without needing to replace any existing hardware.
