Good looking security for top-line resorts

Top-class hotels need top-class security systems that meet their exacting needs and fit into the exclusive look and feel of the establishment. Baha Mar Resort Hotels chose to use VingCard solutions for two new Bahaman resorts for exactly these reasons.

In a deal announced in October, VingCard will supply its Classic smartcard locks and smartcards for guest rooms at the Sheraton Cable Beach Resort and the Wyndham Nassau Resort & Crystal Palace Casino, both beach-front facilities in the popular tourist destination of Nassau. The hotels are part of a larger, four-year development program. In total, VingCard will secure 6000 rooms. 

Matthew Carey, chief information officer for Baha Mar, says: “We chose VingCard based on the company’s reputation for providing the ultimate in security while offering design choices to match our hotels’ unique style and décor. We are confident that VingCard’s Classic locks will not only meet the security needs of our guests, but also enhance the polished environment of our hotels.”

The Classic range is made from high-quality reinforced steel and uses a high-security lockset with 2.5cm steel deadbolt. All electronic components are sealed and located inside the door, further heightening security.

It’s classy, satin-chrome finishes and design features that eliminate visible wear for up to 1 million openings, ensure Classic’s elegant appearance even in heavy-use cases.

At both resorts, the smartcard solution has been enhanced with VingCard’s Vision System, which connects each door to the hotel’s property management system and point of sale through a simple computer interface. With this technology, hotel management can set who has access to which areas of the complex at what times.

This was an important consideration for Baha Mar, which wanted to be able to keep track of staff throughout the extensive hotel properties.

George Winker, vice president of service and support for VingCard, says the project is the perfect opportunity to showcase the company’s top-of-the-line security options. “Our electronic locks provide unique safety and operational features that will only add to the guest experience at these properties.”
