This post is for Hotel Managers to consider before choosing a lock supplier for your property.
There are a number of brands targeting the hotel market, namely Assa Abloy (Vingcard Elsafe, Kaba, Saflok and Onity. Each of them has their own system and features that might suit your property's particular needs.
It is often that Managers only focus on the costs of the installation, i.e. costs per lock; without looking into the long term picture which will include the costs of Smart Cards that are compatible with the lock.
For example, a lock supplier may include encryption on their system which will restrict your ability to source cards elsewhere. This can prove very costly in the future, as some of the encrypted cards costs over 50% more than the ordinary ones.
So, it is smart to review the entire costs before settling with a particular supplier.
