High-End Component Design and OEM Integration for Hotels
The new Hyatt Regency Dubai Creek Heights is a major addition to the Dubai hotel scene, catering to a high-end business and leisure clientele.
The new hotel administration an electronic access control system suited to such a prestigious venue with high security and a high build quality. Aperio wireless locks were chosen both for their design and functionality.
Hyatt required both online and offline locks to do different jobs on different doors. To date, local system integrator Al Futtaim Technologies has installed 25 Aperio online E100 escutcheons and 51 offline E900 escutcheons. The system enables security managers to monitor doors remotely; to open doors wirelessly and to create audit trails for specific doors on demand. Integration with Gallagher’s access control system was also crucial. Their Aperio integration is seamless, as Assa Abloy demonstrated live in Dubai at 2015’s Intersec exhibition. Another official OEM partner, x-Plan, integrates the offline Aperio E900 escutcheons at the new Hyatt.
Component design was crucial in choosing this particular solution. Attractive escutcheons were selected to complement the contemporary, luxurious feel of the Hyatt’s décor. They are all wireless so there’s no ugly cabling to spoil the aesthetics, and installation is quick and affordable. It is easy to incorporate additional Aperio locks into the same security system should the need arise later. The hotel’s Safety and Security Manager, Sayed Abou El Ella, commented ”Aperio offered a cost effective solution that did not require any cabling, and good technical and commercial support”.
Available globally, the Aperio system technology enables a wide range of access control providers to cost-effectively integrate non-wired doors with mechanical locks into access control systems. They integrate with almost any security system, enabling access control to penetrate much further into a site than would be possible or affordable with traditional access control. The range includes the L100 complete security lock for higher-security doors, the stylish H100 wireless handle with integrated access control and the KS100 server rack lock.
