UK Apartment Developer Partners with ASSA ABLOY to offer Students Mobile Access, Locking Solutions

08/01/2017
Bristol, UK-based property developer, Urban Creation, said it successfully implemented the ASSA ABLOY Hospitality Mobile Access solution at two of its new student accommodation sites. The Manor House and Charlotte’s Rise, historic buildings converted by Urban Creation into stylish student residences, are now offering secure and convenient access through ASSA ABLOY Hospitality Mobile Access and VingCard Signature RFID door locks, allowing tenants to gain entry to their rooms and suites with a quick swipe of their mobile device.
 
Urban Creation turned to ASSA ABLOY Hospitality’s innovative technologies to create a unique and streamlined experience for its student residents, making it the first company in Bristol to launch the technology within a student accommodation. An added convenience for both residents and property managers is that check-in is immediate upon the start of each student’s lease through the mobile access app, and the app automatically checks them out at an agreed-upon time at the end of the lease.
 
“We are always looking for clever new ways to improve the experience of tenants in our properties and we think this will help to make their stay a smooth one,” said Jonathan Brecknell, director and owner of Urban Creation. “The move chimes with our ethos of creating homes that are both stylish and practical to live in, paying careful attention to all the little details that make a home a home – from clever storage space to logical layouts.”
 
ASSA ABLOY Hospitality Mobile Access not only streamlines the check-in and check-out process, but also removes the risk of student residents losing physical room keys, which is a security risk and creates added costs for replacing keys and door locks. If the student’s phone is lost or stolen, the key can easily be removed from the mobile app remotely to prevent unauthorized entry. Additionally, The VingCard Signature RFID door locks offer the two properties state-of-the-art security, through powerful and innovative anti-cloning features that prevent unauthorized access.
