News for the Hospitality Executive
Dallas (Dec. 16, 2010) – The global leader in hospitality security and part of the ASSA ABLOY Group received the prestigious Editor’s Choice Award during the International Hotel, Motel + Restaurant Show (IHMRS) in New York, winning for its innovative Energy Management Solution: Orion by VingCard Elsafe. This new and revolutionary solution allows hotel properties to save energy, enhance guest comfort and promote their green initiatives by managing guestroom temperatures via an online local network and/or web-based server.

Orion by VingCard Elsafe also is designed to meet global needs and can be used in any hotel regardless of door lock system. Hotel staff efficiency and HVAC performance is increased through an innovative monitoring and reporting system. Orion by VingCard Elsafe is one of the most environmentally friendly solutions in the industry today.
Of over 100 entries, only nine exhibitors were honored during the opening ceremonies, which recognized best new products within the categories of design, equipment and supplies, guest amenities, linens, and technology, as well as an eco-friendly equivalent to each of these categories.
