White Lodging Implements Kaba RFID Guest Door Locks at 30 Properties
"White Lodging selected Kaba's lock systems for these properties after a thorough evaluation of the 3 major lock providers. We selected Kaba on the basis of product, service, and cost," said Thomas D. Riegelman, VP of engineering & facilities management for White Lodging. "The current agreement covers 30 existing properties and we expect to add a number of additional 'Kaba' properties in 2014 and 2015, both existing and new construction."
"We have had an excellent Kaba project team managing our implementation," Riegelman said. "We are replacing our non-PMS-interfaced magstripe locks with the latest fully interfaced RFID locks. We are also planning to implement a number of systems that are integrated with the property's guestroom energy management system to maximize guest service and energy savings."
