Kaba has released a white paper stating that guest and property security should take top priority as the hospitality industry moves toward mobile access.

The white paper titled "How Hoteliers Can Get to Secure Mobile Key: Understand what lies beyond the Tip of the Mobile Access Iceberg" describes a 3-step process to evaluate whether a property may benefit from this emerging technology. The informative paper also provides a 6-step mobile access implementation process checklist.

Kaba locks utilize a cloud-based mobile access system and BLE (Bluetooth Low Energy) to deliver a seamless guest experience. Kaba provides the Saflok™ and ILCO™ brands of electronic locks.

"The goal of our white paper is to help hoteliers make an informed business decision," said Kerry Hirschy, Kaba senior vice president of sales North America. "Mobile access is still an emerging technology. The publicity buzz often omits the most important consideration: guest and property security. That requires mobile access door locks backed by a well-designed infrastructure. The white paper explains what a secure infrastructure means and how to get there."

The Kaba white paper outlines a 3-step process to help hoteliers assess their readiness for secure mobile door locking systems:
  1. Answer two gateway questions that signal a property’s mobile access readiness.
  2. Identify the motivation for going mobile. Examine both marketing and operational benefits.
  3. Understand the implementation process for a secure mobile strategy. Steps one and two are the tip of the iceberg when it comes to mobile implementation. The technology and operational steps required for a smooth, secure rollout lie beneath the surface. The white paper identifies the six initial elements of a mobile access decision.
