VingCard will install its wireless RF-online system, VISIONLINE, at Singapore’s largest integrated resort and family destination, Resorts World Sentosa, located on Singapore’s resort island of Sentosa.

The product will be installed in all six hotels on the 49-hectare family destination, which will also feature a casino; Southeast Asia’s first and only Universal Studios theme park; Marine Life Park, the world’s largest oceanarium; Maritime Xperiential Museum; and Equarius Water Park.

“With such a large, diverse destination, we needed a product that was going to provide the highest level of security with the flexibility to adapt to our extraordinary hotel structure,” said Mr. Andrew Hickey, vice president of rooms at Resorts World Sentosa. “With the wireless online capabilities of VISIONLINE, we feel confident that our property will be using the most reliable, efficient and secure advanced locking system available today to ensure our operations run smoothly.”

“By centralizing these functions, Resorts World Sentosa can expect to increase employee productivity and efficiency of operations, maintenance and engineering at the hotel,” said Vegard Prytz, vice president and regional director of Asia Pacific at ASSA ABLOY Hospitality. “The VISIONLINE system will maximize security at the property, increasing guests’ satisfaction and ultimately improving the bottom line.”

Built on the ZigBee™ Standard ISO 802.15.4 high-security open platform – the only wireless, highly-secured and open standards-based platform to address the unique needs of low power monitoring and access-control network applications – VISIONLINE offers increased reliability and performance at an affordable cost. Operating on a reliable and secure platform like ZigBee also enables smooth interface and integration opportunities for other online devices such as safes, energy management and mini bars.

“As hoteliers across the globe are becoming more conscious of customer’s needs, VingCard is constantly working to provide the highest security as well as ease-of-use and convenience,” Prytz said. “As customers’ and properties’ needs continue to evolve, Resorts World Sentosa can be assured that VISIONLINE will continue to provide the ultimate security for guest and hoteliers alike.”
