CERN Nuclear Research Facility Installs Kaba RFID Locks to Secure All Hotels

Kaba, provider of Saflok™ and ILCO™ electronic locks, announced the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) in Geneva, Switzerland, installed the ILCO 790 RFID lock system for its 3 hotels and 40 staff and common-area access points.

CERN is the world’s largest particle physics laboratory. Its guests and staff are physicists, engineers, and students from 580 institutions and universities around the world. These specialists use the facility’s complex scientific instruments to study the fundamental particles that make up the structure of the universe.

Advanced Kaba technology keeps CERN’s hotels safe

“We selected Kaba RFID locks because our top priority at CERN is to provide guests with a secure, trouble-free stay so they can concentrate on their projects,” said Bernard Goicoechea, general supervisor for CERN Hotels. “Kaba RFID locks are a reliable, durable product that uses the most advanced technology to keep our hotels safe for the physicists and engineers who stay in them.” CERN’s 3 hotels have a total of 420 guest rooms. The facility relied on Secusuisse in Switzerland to install Kaba’s ILCO RFID locks at all properties.

Goicoechea stated that CERN based its decision to install Kaba on extensive research. “We met with 4- and 5-Star hotels in Switzerland to discuss what locks they recommend. Most of the operators said Kaba is the best partner in hotel access control solutions. Kaba’s 790 RFID locks are attractive and interface with our property management system perfectly. We are now evaluating security updates to other areas of CERN’s facility. We expect to implement RFID locks that track and identify access to these areas and will partner with Kaba for this project without a doubt.”

Kaba ILCO 790 RFID locks

Kaba’s ILCO 790 RFID locking system is cost-effective and attractive. It uses the latest access control technology to provide hotel guests with a contactless room access experience. The RFID technology enables hotels to provide a 1st class guest experience and significantly reduce operational overhead. The 790 Series locks are the perfect choice for hotels looking to take their operation and security systems to the next level. RFID keycards cannot be de-magnetized, so hotels do not suffer the cost and inconvenience of issuing replacements. ILCO 790 locks easily replace existing mechanical or electronic door locks.
