With this ground-breaking Kaba hotel locking system, which opens hotel locks in less than a second, guests can enjoy a completely new and intuitive experience that very much suits The Cromwell's unique 'modern meets vintage' style.

Kaba, the leading provider of access control solutions for the hotel industry, has installed a mobile access system at The Cromwell in Las Vegas. Cloud-based Kaba keys operate in all hotel rooms, allowing guests to open their room doors with their own mobile phone or device as an alternative to a classic RFID card. The use of Bluetooth Low Energy means that Apple iOS smartphones are supported.

"Kaba's mobile access system is based on the cloud service set up by security firm Legic Identsystems, a subsidiary of Kaba. With this ground-breaking Kaba hotel locking system, which opens hotel locks in less than a second, guests can enjoy a completely new and intuitive experience that very much suits The Cromwell's unique 'modern meets vintage' style," says Alastair Cush, Head of Kaba Lodging’s Global Business Development.

Kaba securely integrates with a property’s online system between the front desk and lock

Kaba's mobile access solutions integrate seamlessly with the hotel’s online system via secure communication between the front desk and the guest door lock. Kaba can utilize a choice of technologies, including Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) and Near Field Communications (NFC), so hotel operators can securely issue and manage access authorizations in the way that suits their requirements.

Secure mobile access solutions enable greater convenience

The flexibility of Kaba's mobile access solutions with mobile phones ensures a guest experience that meets the latest demands. Guests can check in online with their mobile, and then use it during their stay as their very own mobile room key. Kaba's mobile access authorizations are encrypted in the Kaba system using the Legic ID Connect cloud solution, transferred to the hotel guest, and only decrypted within the hotel lock of the hotel room. This guarantees secure and convenient access to hotel rooms and other secure areas, including elevator floor control

With 188 rooms and suites, The Cromwell is the only standalone boutique hotel located on the Las Vegas Strip. With its prime location on one of the busiest intersections of the Las Vegas Strip – one that welcomes more than 20 million passersby each year – the luxury lifestyle hotel also features a 40,000 square foot casino, hotel lobby bar, lounge, restaurant by Giada De Laurentiis and beach and nightlife venues by Victor Drai.
