Add mobile & smart access technology to locker rooms with the SALTO XS4 Locker BLE
Security is one of the most important factors in a locker room, as they are primarily designed to store items and valuables safely while people exercise, undergo spa treatments, work, or use other facility amenities. When considering a locker lock solution, you'll need to consider security, convenience, effective management, and ultimately what is best for your guest experience and property operations.
The growing popularity of mobile engagement with hotel guests can be seen through keyless smart access. Guests can now use their phones as digital room keys, to call an Uber, or use Google Maps — all within the hotel app. Some hotels also include a mobile requests feature within their apps so guests can request amenities or ask questions. The establishments themselves also contact guests via the app or text messaging to inquire about arrival times and any other needs guests may have prior to arrival.
With the SALTO XS4 Locker Lock, smart access technology is expanded to locker rooms which adds both ease and efficiency to the whole guest digital experience, from checking in to checking out. The capability of effectively extending real-time, online, and mobile-enabled smart electronic access control to lockers and cabinets has eluded the hospitality market – until now. By incorporating BLE (Bluetooth Low Energy) technology into their latest electronic locker lock, SALTO has delivered a product that extends up-to-date comprehensive electronic access control to lockers, cabinets, and essentially anywhere on the peripheral.
The ability to deliver real-time smart access to locker rooms and cabinets wirelessly – and to link it to guest services – has been long desired in the hospitality industry. Hotel management has desired the capability to build the guest experience and to provide personalized service and extensive hotel amenities. There are a variety of needs for securing the contents of lockers and while SALTO has been a leader in providing electronic access control for lockers with the original XS4 Locker Lock, the new version adds BLE functionality which is a game-changer.
Adding BLE capabilities to SALTO’s XS4 Locker Lock solution not only offers the most up-to-date protection for lockers and cabinets, it also delivers the capability for guests and staff members to control these devices with mobile phones as a technology feature for hotels to take advantage of and to optimize guest satisfaction.
Keyless and mobile access to locker locks creates a more seamless and secure stay
SALTO XS4 Locker Locks are highly durable and have been constructed to withstand the unique environments often found in locker rooms. Security, hygiene, and cleanliness are such a crucial element in the maintenance of locker room spaces. Locker locks allow access to space underneath lockers, ensuring your whole floor space can be cleaned thoroughly and to an immaculate standard.
The SALTO XS4 Locker BLE is an ergonomic design based on the same housing and mechanical mechanisms of the original version. A locking thumb turn makes for easy use – even with wet hands. The outer thumb turn – with a red and green indicator for the availability of the locker – has an electronically-managed release. Ready-to-install into pre-existing doors, the XS4 Locker Lock BLE is designed to be the ideal product for the replacement locker lock and can be used to quickly secure any pre-existing cabinet.
And in an era where contagious viruses and bacteria dominate the headlines, it’s impressive that the XS4 Locker BLE comes standard with BioCote® Antimicrobial Technology that can reduce bacteria and viruses by up to 99.99%.
Mobile Technology helps automate and optimize the hotel guest experience
One of the primary benefits of a smart electronic access control solution is the ability to easily incorporate mobile access use. The SALTO XS4 Locker Lock BLE is JustIN Mobile compatible which means that any guest can use a smartphone (IOS or Android) to operate the locker lock.
Hotels can now take advantage of all the features mobile can offer. Being able to check-in and out, unlock a guest room, order room service, and make amenity bookings are all actions guests will be thrilled to perform via the guest mobile phone application. Adding JustIN mobile functionality to a locker lock means adding more features that can be conducted over the phone network, like updating credentials; blacklist transmission; automatic audit trail collection; and automatic battery status collection.
Guest experience goes to a new level with mobile-enabled smart Locker Lock technology
Platform management systems including SALTO ProAccess SPACE front-desk management software are equally as important as the hardware component of the new SALTO XS4 Locker BLE. ProAccess SPACE advanced hospitality web-based access control management software provides hotel operators with the real-time view of locker usage with available reports and log files of each individual smart locker deployment, the ability to control lockers remotely, firmware update capability via wireless infrastructure, remote locker opening, emergency opening, lockdown capability, and the ability to easily control all access and building user management needs with one easy-to-use system and friendly user interface. This safe and secure management is fully compliant with GDPR standards.
The SALTO XS4 Locker with embedded BLE technology and system features make this product an excellent solution for hotels that require a locking solution for a controlled, easy-to-operate, and fully-integrated mobile access technology system that improves the guest experience and property operations.
