East Coast Five-Star Ski Resort Uses Quantum RFID Key Fobs and Mobile Access for a Secure Guest Experience
MONTREAL, QC, CANADA – February 21, 2019 – It’s time to ski. When winter travelers want to go carving they head up to the East Coast’s only Five-Star ski-in ski-out destination, The Lodge at Spruce Peak in Stowe, Vermont. With thousands of vertical feet of groomed slopes and a dozen lifts, The Lodge at Spruce Peak is a premier resort that offers luxury accommodations and amenities. That is why it installed dormakaba’s Saflok Quantum BLE-enabled RFID electronic door locks to make hospitality smart and secure. dormakaba is a total solution provider for the hospitality industry. Its products include secure Saflok™ and Ilco™ electronic door locks. dormakaba is one of the top three companies in the global market for access and security solutions.
“Saflok’s Quantum electronic locks work very well for Lodge at Spruce Peak. It is a very secure system, and the convenience and reliability of dormakaba’s BLE-enabled RFID system is perfect for our guests,” said Dan Rich, Director of Engineering at the Lodge at Spruce Peak. “We use dormakaba’s RFID locks on entry doors, guestrooms, garage doors and other perimeter access points.”
The Lodge at Spruce Peak is a condo hotel with many ownership units. The property’s guests rely on dormakaba’s RFID access, while owners prefer to use dormakaba mobile access. “Our mobile app is ideal for our owners. They can enter their unit quickly when it is not being rented by using dormakaba’s BLE mobile access to bypass the front desk. This lets owners enter their unit with their handheld’s dormakaba mobile access credential,” Rich said.
The Lodge at Spruce Peak has approximately 300 units made up of the Lodge, Village Townhomes and homes. “Since we are a sport-focused destination in the winter we provide owners with plastic RFID coded keyring medallions to carry in place of a room keycard,” Rich said. “dormakaba’s lock equipment looks great on our doors and we can audit door locks and guest keys to verify room access if there is a question.”
Stephen Pollack, dormakaba vice president of marketing, said, “The Lodge at Spruce Peak does a great job of using all Saflok Quantum’s security options. Their RFID key ring medallions are an effective way to secure guestroom keys and prevent loss for skiers, snowboarders and skaters. This safeguards the key they use to access their Lodge room, garage and secure public spaces. dormakaba’s BLE-enabled mobile access capability also gives owners convenient personalized access to their units. It is a perfect fit for guests, owners and the property.”
