Salto Partners With Interel for BLE Wireless Lock Integration
Interel is one of the first hospitality guest room management solutions to integrate with Salto’s BLUEnet wireless technology.
ATLANTA — Salto Systems and Interel announce the integration of Salto’s wireless BLUEnet technology into Interel’s guest room control solutions.
The integrated solution replaces traditional ZigBee wireless language with Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) wireless radios, allowing hotels to minimize their infrastructure investment, optimize energy consumption and take advantage of Salto’s next-generation products, according to the announcement.
Interel is one of the first guest room management solutions to integrate with Salto’s BLUEnet wireless technology, which is designed for doors where real-time control is required and can be installed as an independent system or can complement the Salto virtual network (SVN).
“We’re excited to continue to offer technologically-advanced solutions for the hospitality industry with leading guest room management partners like Interel,” states Salto Vice President of Hospitality Sales Michael Cline. “Our newest integration incorporates the most efficient and advanced technology into guest room access control and energy management and is just another example of how Salto and Interel continue to improve product offerings.”
The integration provides secure room access control for guests and staff that works in tandem with in-room thermostats and controls to ensure that energy consumption — one of the top expenses for the hospitality industry — is minimized, according to the announcement.
Guest room management includes features such as controlling the temperature, lighting, curtains and requesting hotel services with the touch of a button. The integrated solution — which can replace mechanical keys and proximity cards with smartphone-based access control technology — can also alert hotel staff when a room is occupied and can help them to respond quicker to guest requests.
Additionally, Interel and Salto deliver these advanced guest features and online access control functionality without additional infrastructure, reducing total cost of ownership for the hotel, the announcement states.
“Our integration with Salto’s BLUEnet wireless is strongly in line with Interel’s dedication to the future of hospitality,” says Interel CEO Florian Gallini. “By incorporating the latest Bluetooth technology, Interel and Salto are providing hotels with the opportunity to utilize the most efficient way to integrate best-in-class access control and energy management for the hospitality industry.”
