Why Kaba RFID Locks? White Lodging Selected Kaba Locks Based on Product, Service, and Price 

MONTREAL, QC, CANADA - June 4, 2014 - Kaba, provider of Saflok™ and ILCO™ brands of electronic locks, announced White Lodging selected Kaba's Saflok Quantum and RT RFID guestroom door locks for more than 30 Marriott, Hilton, Hyatt, IHG, and other flagged properties. Installation began in 4Q 2013 with completion expected in early 2014. Click here for information on Kaba electronic locks.

"White Lodging selected Kaba's lock systems for these properties after a thorough evaluation of the 3 major lock providers.  We selected Kaba on the basis of product, service, and cost," said Thomas D. Riegelman, VP of engineering & facilities management for White Lodging. "The current agreement covers 30 existing properties and we expect to add a number of additional 'Kaba' properties in 2014 and 2015, both existing and new construction." 

Kaba RFID selection was a good decision

"We have had an excellent Kaba project team managing our implementation," Riegelman said. "We are replacing our non-PMS-interfaced magstripe locks with the latest fully interfaced RFID locks. We are also planning to implement a number of systems that are integrated with the property's guestroom energy management system to maximize guest service and energy savings."

White Lodging has standardized on RFID lock systems for its replacement systems and for all new construction. "Any time you manage a large portfolio of properties, there is always a need for locks to be changed out and upgraded," Riegelman said. "We have 10 hotels opening this year, and all of them will have Kaba locks. I expect White Lodging's strong relationship with Kaba to continue well beyond these current lock system replacements.  Kaba has remained an excellent choice for White Lodging."

The Kaba Saflok Quantum II RFID lock offers an attractive two-piece modular design that combines a contemporary appearance with Kaba reliability. Quantum locks also provide online capability with Kaba's Messenger™ system that converts stand-alone, battery-operated door locks into bi-directional communication devices for greater guest safety and operational convenience. The Kaba Saflok RT is a rugged contactless lock that offers RFID technology to enhance the guest room access experience and streamline hotel operations. The full-body RT lock is a perfect retro-fit option for replacing existing mechanical or electronic door locks throughout a facility.
