In conjunction with the introduction of Orion by VingCard Elsafe at HITEC, VingCard Elsafe showcased its complete line of electronic locking solutions and safes. VISIONLINE by VingCard, the wireless online system that offers reliable two-way communication from standalone electronic door locks to their host security and PMS systems, operates in conjunction with Orion by VingCard Elsafe, offering maximum functionality through a complete and smooth integration of locks, safes and thermostat on the same wireless online platform. By operating with VISIONLINE, door locks communicate directly with the room's thermostat, informing the thermostat that the keycard opening the guestroom door is either a guest card or a hotel staff card, signaling the thermostat to adjust the temperature accordingly. While operating with VISIONLINE maximizes the potential of the new product, Orion by VingCard Elsafe can also operate independently from a property's locking solution, detecting a guest's presence through as occupancy motion sensor, which uses the RF-online capabilities to communicate with the room's thermostat.

VingCard Elsafe also showcased its Signature RFID by VingCard electronic locks, its widely successful line of contactless electronic door locks that offer highly reliable security features and provide unprecedented convenience and ease-of-operation for hoteliers and hotel guests alike.

Additionally, the system can adapt to its users' needs, employing options from contactless keycards to wristbands to key fobs, and even cutting-edge Near Field Communication (NFC) cell phones to bring a unique experience to each individual that uses the locks.
