Kaba integrated its Saflok RFID guest keycards with elevator banks in the newly revitalized Hyatt Regency New Orleans.  Only keycard holders may be admitted to guestroom floors for heightened security at the 1,193-room convention hotel.  Schindler Elevator’s PORT destination-dispatch technology reads a guest’s Saflok RFID keycard outside one of the eight elevator cars and automatically calls the elevator before a guest enters.
