Security is the most important factor on leaders’ minds in the hospitality and travel industries. A true global hospitality company, VingCard Elsafe develops and refines global solutions that protect hotel owners from liability, hotel assets from physical attacks, and travelers and their valuables.

VingCard Elsafe Expands to Meet Hoteliers Needs
Upon introduction of one of the world’s first recodable door locks in 1979, VingCard reinvented the hospitality security industry. Today VingCard leads the industry in creating security systems that meet the needs of top designers, architects, hoteliers and security professionals.

Signature RFID by VingCard®, a contactless electronic locking solution featuring the latest security technology including near-field communications (NFC) cell phone compatibility, allows hotel guests to use next-generation NFC-compliant cell phones to open guestroom doors. The design-centric and friendly radio-frequency identification (RFID) contactless lock is convenient for guests and operates on an open-platform system compatible with the three leading RFID ISO standards (ISO 14443A/MiFare, ISO 14443B, ISO 15693), and also the new NFC secure transaction platform. Hotels equipped with Signature RFID locks offer guests remote checkin with next-generation cell phones featuring NFC-compatibility, and RFID key cards that cannot be duplicated.

VISIONLINE by VingCard®, a radio-frequency (RF) online electronic-locking system for hotels, facilitates reliable two-way communications from standalone electronic locks to the hotel’s host security system.  Uniquely VISIONLINE provides total security control from one central location, eliminating travel to guestrooms to reprogram individual locks, identify and change low batteries, or cancel and re-encode keycards.

Protecting Guests’ Valuables
Since introducing one of the world’s first electronic in-room safes in 1979, Elsafe is a leading provider of safes to the hospitality industry, offering one of the most advanced audit trails, modular design and upgradeable technology at any budget. Supplying more than 50 percent of in-room electronic hotel safes in 165 countries, Elsafe provides one of the only UL-listed (1037) hotel safe series in keypad and card-based models under its Infinity and Sentinel product lines.

Infinity II by Elsafe offers in-room safes compatible with RFID/NFC and RF-online electronic locks. The safes feature exclusive anti-tamper and anti-cloning technology, which track and identify an individual’s unauthorized use of a safe. Infinity II works in tandem with Signature RFID contactless electronic door locks from VingCard, opening only with designated RFID guest keycards, wristbands, key fobs or NFC cell phones, and offering four unique features: an interlocking mechanism; an anti-tamper labyrinth; a solid piece, cold-pressed curved steel door; and extended solid hinges arc-welded to the door. Infinity II mirrors the sleek look of contemporary consumer electronics with glossy black, white and gold finishes.

Sentinel II, stylish in-room safes, operate on digital keypads, RFID/NFC and/or RF-online platforms and with the Signature RFID contactless electronic lock from VingCard to provide exclusive anti-cloning technology, only opening with designated RFID keycard or NFC cell phones. Sentinel II offers a contemporary design with an audit trail, providing the same hardware features as Infinity II.
