Kaba Installs Mobile Access Technology at The Cromwell in Las Vegas
Kaba, a leading provider of access control solutions for the hotel industry, has installed a mobile access system at The Cromwell in Las Vegas. Cloud-based Kaba keys operate in all hotel rooms, allowing guests to open their room doors with their own mobile phones or devices as an alternative to a classic RFID card. The use of Bluetooth® Low Energy means that Apple® iOS smartphones are supported.

Kaba's mobile access solutions integrate seamlessly with the hotel’s online system via secure communication between the front desk and the guest door lock.

"Kaba's mobile access system is based on the cloud service set up by security firm Legic Identsystems, which is a subsidiary of Kaba,” said Alastair Cush, head of lodging at Kaba's ADS Americas division and Kaba’s director, product marketing. “With this groundbreaking Kaba hotel locking system, which opens hotel locks in less than a second, guests enjoy a completely new and intuitive experience that very much suits The Cromwell's unique modern-meets-vintage style."

Kaba's mobile access solutions work with a choice of technologies, including Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) and near-field communications (NFC), so hotel operators can use it – and securely issue and manage access authorizations – in the way that best suits their requirements.

The flexibility of Kaba's mobile access solutions with mobile phones ensures a guest experience that meets the latest demands. Guests can check in online with their mobile, and then use it during their stay as their very own mobile room key. Kaba's mobile access authorizations are encrypted in the Kaba system using the Legic ID Connect cloud solution, transferred to the hotel guest, and only decrypted within the hotel lock of the hotel room. This guarantees secure and convenient access to hotel rooms and other secure areas including elevator floor control

Tests Prove Platform-independent Credential Solution is Secure, Reliable
“The Kaba Mobile Access Solution is a secure, end-to-end mobile credential delivery system that uses Bluetooth Low Energy technology,” said Cush. “Our product emphasis is on flexible mobile credential systems based on tested technology that is proven to be secure and reliable.”
