When it comes to locks and keys, you have many options.

Legacy door locks​

Physical Keys

- White, sometimes branded, cards that are expensive to replace. ​

​- Guests have one extra thing to worry about before leaving their rooms and extra stress when forgotten or lost. ​

Cost

- Once installed, expensive to replace/upgrade​

- Parts are expensive to purchase​

- Replacements can lead to unoccupied rooms = less revenue

Security

- One card for one lock​

- No tracking of who exactly is going in/out of the room​

Door Lock Providers

- The current leading door lock providers, due to their size, have become slower in adapting to current trends in the market

Mobile Keys​

These integrations can be added from the Mews Marketplace. ​

Using these solutions will allow guests to bypass reception securely, either by using a PIN Code or Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE)​.
