KABA, OpenWays Collaborate on Mobile Locking System
KABA was tapped by IHG to implement the smartphone system at its Holiday Inn Express Hotel & Suites Houston - Downtown Convention Center. KABA retrofitted all property locks with the OpenWays Crypto Acoustic Credential (CAC) upgrade module.
The OpenWays cell phone solution works in tandem with normal keycard operations and KABA locks handle both keycard and OpenWays phone access.ÃThe new access system offers freedom of choice. A guest can use his or her mobile phone and go straight to their guestroom, or go to the front desk and get a keycard. The system works with any smartphone including the iPhone 4G, Android, Nokia Symbian, Blackberrys, Windows Phone 7, and with all other cell phones.
