RemoteLock, a provider of cloud-based access control and smart lock management software, announces it has partnered with Sleepbox to administer access management for their micro-hotel units. These nap pods are located in the Sleepbox Lounge at Washington Dulles International Airport (IAD), Concourse A.
Sleepbox Lounge at IAD offers 16 private, secure, quiet pods that travelers can reserve, on an hourly basis, through the Sleepbox smartphone app. The app enables customers to reserve, and also unlock the room and control its features—creating a seamless, on-demand hospitality experience. The pods are secured by RemoteLock's OpenEdge smart locks which are controlled via a direct API integration to the Sleepbox application. The integration allows passengers to receive an individual, expirable door access code upon booking their reservation in real-time.
"We needed a proven solution that ensured a stress-free way for travelers to gain entry to their reserved pod within moments of their booking. RemoteLock's API and lock options solved that perfectly," says Peter Chambers, co-founder of Sleepbox. "We partnered with RemoteLock because of their solid reputation developing similar access management applications in the vacation rental market that require continuous smart lock access code updates as guests change."
Dulles International Airport serves more than 24 million passengers a year and is the first airport in the world to offer Sleepbox. Since opening in April 2019, Sleepbox Lounge at Dulles International has served over 3,000 travelers. Additional Sleepbox Lounges will open at airports across the United States in 2020.
