Kaba Online Lock System Delivers Greater Security and Guest Convenience
Management companies and hotel chains select Kaba’s secure electronic locks for reliability and guest safety and satisfaction. Kaba provides, implements and supports Saflok and ILCO electronic locks that safeguard guests and protect property.

Kaba announced its new Wi-Fi communications backbone for online hotel locks. Kaba's Saflok online lock system increases security and guest convenience. The system uses ZigBee communication from locks and Wi-Fi communication from Kaba's Messenger™ gateways. This enables hotels to realize the benefits of ZigBee online locks with less installation complexity and property impact.

Older, historic hotels frequently have unique floor plans and other constraints that make it difficult to implement networked electronic locks. Kaba's new Wi-Fi communication backbone is an ideal, cost-effective solution for these and many other properties where this was impossible in the past.

Kaba's Saflok Quantum Messenger door locks provide greater security and reliability. They continually communicate their status across an online network that monitors the guest door for optimum security. If a guest’s door is left ajar for a configurable time period, guest services or security can be automatically notified to respond. The Messenger wireless communication system allows Web-based monitoring of electronic door locks and keys for guestrooms and back-of-the-house doors, including ballrooms, meeting rooms, service closets, employee entrances, mechanical areas and storerooms for total property security.
