Kaba, the provider of Saflok™ and ILCO™ electronic door locks, will present its new AMBIANCE access management software at HITEC in New Orleans from June 20-23.

AMBIANCE embraces industry best practices to deliver return on investment through shorter and easier training sessions and reduced support requirements. The system is scalable to fit practically any budget and manages Kaba’s BLE, RFID and magstripe hotel guest access systems for properties with 10 to 10,000 rooms. AMBIANCE's intuitive operation workflows simplifies training and support to reduce cost for users. 

“AMBIANCE is Kaba’s leap into the future of access management software,” said Barbara Krzywoszanski, AMBIANCE product manager. “The system is designed to be scalable based on property size and provides a variety of deployment options.  We created a user-friendly, guided workflow environment that adapts to a variety of operational needs that includes both Windows™ and iOS operating systems. AMBIANCE is easy to use and maintain to reduce IT costs and help hotels deliver a best-in-class guest experience.” The system is based on the HTML5 user interface that is adaptable for both desktop and mobile use. “As properties move to a mobile technology strategy, Kaba will easily meet their needs,” Krzywoszanski said.

AMBIANCE includes a library of web services that enable clients to add active controls to third party systems like PMS, EMS or other solutions. The system’s ease of use lets operators manage their key security requirements themselves. “We designed AMBIANCE with the end user in mind," said Krzywoszanski. "Its friendly user interface makes it easy to implement and manage. AMBIANCE takes care of you instead of you taking care of it”

AMBIANCE is currently in use at Hotel Giraffe in New York City. “We first installed Kaba’s Saflok door locks when we opened Hotel Giraffe in 1999. We trust Kaba because their locks have performed very well. When it was time to upgrade we turned to Kaba,” said Peter Velk, Hotel Giraffe's general manager. “We were pleased Kaba suggested we implement their new AMBIANCE software platform and BLE-ready RFID locks. The installation was very smooth and their support is excellent.”
