What did they need?

Finding a room lock that could work with the technologies already installed at the hotel was a prime concern. Many manufacturers’ offerings were simply not up to the job. This led them to SALTO, world leaders in wire free and wireless access control technology. After explaining their needs and objectives, SALTO with an acknowledged reputation as the leading manufacturers of advanced security solutions for the hotel and hospitality industry, recommended their Aelement electronic lock as the ideal solution for the task.
