Trendsetting boutique property deploys latest in future-proof hotel security combined with an attractive and sustainable door lock design.

Stockholm – September 19, 2023 – ASSA ABLOY Global Solutions, a leading provider of advanced security technology for the hospitality industry, has announced the first successful US-based deployment of its VingCard Novel door lock solution by CANVAS Hotel Dallas. A property catering to its guests with an industrial-chic design and the latest in modern comforts, CANVAS Hotel Dallas with VingCard Novel can now keep pace with evolving security standards and guest behaviors while maintaining the building’s unique style.

By upgrading its security access operations with VingCard Novel, CANVAS Hotel Dallas notably gains a door lock solution engineered with a modular approach to components. This notably allows hotel businesses to update hardware/firmware or implement integrations with third-party systems as the need arises. Examples include facilitating integrations with energy management platforms and motion sensors, all without having to undergo a costly full lock replacement or designing a complex patchwork of systems.

With all components included within VingCard Novel’s sleek door handle, the solution also features a minimalistic design that can effortlessly blend in with any hotel décor. This ability is further strengthened thanks to VingCard Novel additionally offering several door lock color and design options. As more guests voice their preference for eco-friendly travel by booking at environmentally responsible hotels, VingCard Novel even addresses this growing industry expectation by being designed using sustainable manufacturing practices. VingCard Novel also features enhanced durability, ensuring that components are resistant to wear and tear while providing the solution with the ability to operate both in indoor and outdoor environments without issue.

“A hotel’s security access operations are often the first service that guests come into contact with, so we believe that making the right impression starts with ensuring a high quality, safe and convenient room access experience,” said Jared Williams, Area General Manager at Evolution Hospitality, the lifestyle division of Aimbridge Hospitality, which operates CANVAS Hotel Dallas. “VingCard Novel has absolutely checked off all the right boxes on these needs and is a solution that thanks to its scalable and durable design, is built to last.”

VingCard Novel is supported by Vostio Access Management, a cloud-based solution that further elevates both hotel security and efficiency. Sidestepping the need for costly onsite servers, Vostio Access Management is able to receive routine and automatic software updates that protect against the latest potential security threats. As a cloud-based system that utilizes enhanced data encryption, Vostio Access Management is securely accessible by virtually any device with an online connection. This allows hotel staff to manage and monitor security access operations on the go and without having to first locate a stationary terminal.
