Aperio - a perfect fit for new-build Hyatt Regency Hotel office spaces in Dubai


Gallagher & x-Plan integration make Aperio® the right choice for Hyatt Hotels Administration in Dubai.


A new 5-star hotel in Dubai’s Healthcare City, the Hyatt Regency Dubai Creek Heights, has 464 luxury rooms spread over 34 floors. It caters to both business and leisure travelers. ASSA ABLOY partnered with Gallagher (online) and x-Plan (offline).


The hotel required a new electronic access control system for its non-public facing areas, including administrative back-office space. The job demanded premium build quality that is found throughout all Hyatt Regency properties. The electronic locks needed to integrate seamlessly with the Gallagher access control system that are installed at the hotel, a full range of both online and offline locks that could be deployed where appropriate, and wireless locks that have a design that would work alongside the contemporary layout of the new commercial areas. The Hyatt Regency Dubai Creek Heights also needed reliable technical and customer support from ASSA ABLOY and a local system integrator as well as a cost-effective solution to meet project budgets.


Back-office access control at Dubai’s new Hyatt is now future-proofed. Local system integrator Al Futtaim Technologies installed a mix of online and offline Aperio® electronic access control devices. To date, 25 online E100 escutcheons and 51 offline E900 escutcheons have been fitted. Aperio enables security managers at the new Hyatt to monitor doors remotely; to open doors wirelessly; and to create audit trails for specific staff-access only doors on demand.

Attractive Aperio component design ensures new escutcheons complement the contemporary feel of the Hyatt’s new commercial back office space. Aperio wireless escutcheons are easy to install and linked to the access control systems. Aperio equipped doors are operated with standard RFID smartcards and powered by standard batteries. It will be easy to incorporate additional Aperio locks should the hotel need them.
