Hartnoll Hotel Installs Kaba’s Confidant RFID Contactless Lock System

Hartnoll Hotel Installs Kaba’s Confidant RFID Contactless Lock System

MONTREAL— The Hartnoll Hotel, located on the edge of the Exmoor National Park in the Exe Valley in Devon, United Kingdom, recently installed Kaba’s Confidant RFID Contactless Lock System to its guestroom doors. Guest room keys were being taken off property,” said Claire Carter, owner of the Hartnoll Hotel. “We had to change room locks each time this happened. We wanted to eliminate the need for the old iron keys and replace them with a more secure lock. Aesthetics were also important. Our doors are the original ones from when the property was built. We wanted secure, modern locks that blended with the look and feel of our historic hotel.” Confidant locks rely on secure RFID (radio frequency identification) entry codes and maintain an audit trail of the last 2,000 transactions for secure retrieval. For safety, a mechanical key may be used to override the RFID system in the event of an emergency. Each keycard is encoded by a portable RFID Front Desk Unit (FDU), uniquely designed for the hotel industry. The RFID keycard reader audits each key’s use, so managers can verify room access for legal support in the event of unauthorized room entry or claim of theft.
