HITEC News: Kaba Launches Software Innovations and Partnerships
At HITEC 2016 Kaba will launch a new global software platform that standardizes all its network lock systems. The new platform delivers greater ease of use for hotel operators, simplifies service and enhances Kaba locks security. Kaba’s new software platform is in use at a prominent Manhattan property.
Kaba will demonstrate its latest BLE (Bluetooth Low Energy) mobile access lock solutions at HITEC. Show attendees can experience Kaba’s newest fully mobile front desk system in use at several major hotel chains. Kaba's mobile key solution works with BLE (Bluetooth Low Energy) so hotel operators can use it – and securely issue and manage access authorizations – in the way that best suits their needs.
Cloud-based Kaba mobile keys enable guests to open their room doors with their own BLE mobile phone or device, including the Apple Watch®, as a flexible alternative to a classic RFID keycard. Most Kaba RFID locks manufactured today are compatible with BLE, IOS and Android mobile technology.   
Kaba welcomes integration partners Intelity and OpenKey in its HITEC booth to talk with operators about how they work together to smoothly and quickly facilitate Kaba’s mobile solutions. Keyscan Control Systems now interface with Kaba’s networked RFID lock systems. Properties can streamline security with Keyscan common-room, commercial access and turnstile systems fully integrated with Kaba on one platform.

The merger of the businesses of Kaba Group, headquartered in R├╝mlang (Switzerland) and Dorma Group, based in Ennepetal (Germany), was completed on Sept. 1, 2015. Together, dorma+kaba is one of the top three global companies in the market for security and access solutions, with pro forma sales of more than CHF 2 billion, and close to 16,000 employees.
