RemoteLock Provides Access Management for Nap Lounge at Dulles
The company partnered with Sleepbox to administer Cloud-based access control for napping pods located in the airport’s Sleepbox Lounge.
DENVER — RemoteLock, a provider of Cloud-based access control and smart lock management software, has partnered with Sleepbox to administer access management for its micro-hotel units. These nap pods are located in the Sleepbox Lounge at Washington Dulles Int’l Airport, Concourse A.
Sleepbox Lounge at Dulles Airport offers 16 private, secure, quiet pods that travelers can reserve on an hourly basis through the Sleepbox smartphone app. The app enables customers to reserve and also unlock the room and control its features — creating a seamless, on-demand hospitality experience, according to an announcement.
The pods are secured by RemoteLock’s OpenEdge smart locks, which are controlled via a direct API integration to the Sleepbox application. The integration allows passengers to receive an individual, expirable door access code upon booking their reservation in real-time.
“We needed a proven solution that ensured a stress-free way for travelers to gain entry to their reserved pod within moments of their booking. RemoteLock’s API and lock options solved that perfectly,” states Peter Chambers, co-founder of Sleepbox. “We partnered with RemoteLock because of their solid reputation developing similar access management applications in the vacation rental market that require continuous smart lock access code updates as guests change.”
Dulles Int’l Airport serves more than 24 million passengers a year and is the first airport in the world to offer Sleepbox. Since opening in April 2019, Sleepbox Lounge at Dulles has served more than 3,000 travelers. Additional Sleepbox Lounges will open at airports across the United States in 2020, according to the announcement.
“Our goal in partnering with Sleepbox was to manage access to their revolutionary Sleepbox Lounge in a way that seamlessly blended guest security and ease of access to the pods for travelers,” says Nolan Mondrow, founder and CEO of RemoteLock. “Our platform and API capabilities can support the rapid growth that is ahead for Sleepbox and we are excited to partner with them in on-demand hospitality.”
