Leveraging ASSA ABLOY Global Solutions’ strategic relationships with third-party technology providers, the newly opened luxury property can now provide guests with the highest standard of safety, convenience and personalization while minimizing energy costs. The implementation of this technology was a major reason the hotel was recognized at the 2021 HM Magazine Awards for Excellence as Australia’s Best Tech Hotel.                                                                                           

 Little National Sydney chose ASSA ABLOY Global Solutions to meet the property’s goals of adopting state-of-the-art technology ensuring a seamless user experience for guests. Utilizing ASSA ABLOY Global Solutions’ VingCard Allure door locks, a sleek and stylish customizable LED panel that is implemented adjacent to guestroom doors, Little National Sydney can now ensure maximized guest security through the latest RFID security encryption technology. A customizable door lock designed to accommodate every hotel and guest need, VingCard Allure is capable of fully integrating with the property’s Guestroom Management System (GRMS) by Telkonet. This allows Little National Sydney to determine when a guest first enters the room, with lighting and temperature controls able to automatically adjust to ensure that each guest experiences a welcoming environment from the moment that they arrive.

Through the Telkonet Guestroom Management System integration with ASSA ABLOY Global Solutions locks and access management technology, the property can instantly detect guestroom occupancy status and implement automatic energy-saving settings for in-room amenities such as thermostats and lights once a room becomes unoccupied. The hotel can also leverage the integration to monitor temperature and lighting at all times to ensure maximum energy efficiency.

Guests at Little National Sydney can also use the property’s Liverton kiosks to check-in and out of their rooms, with VingCard Allure lock integration ensuring that all types of guests can be checked-in swiftly while minimizing potential germ exposure by eliminating the need to  come into close contact with others. VingCard Allure’s integration with Liverton’s kiosks notably saves significant labour costs and time while streamlining the guest experience via a much faster and more intuitive check-in process. The kiosks interface with the hotel PMS for check-in/out, terms & conditions acceptance, credit card payment and have the option of linking to rewards programs in order to provide a more personalized experience while enhancing the potential to increase hotel revenues.
