Onity’s ADVANCE RFID Electronic Locking Solution Provides “Plug & Play” Security Technology Upgrade
“The easy upgrade path is a major reason that two-piece guest room door locks are rapidly replacing traditional one-piece units in hotels around the world, said Daniel Foxworth, Onity’s Vice President of Hospitality Sales. “Smart hoteliers know that guest security is of the utmost importance and security technology is constantly evolving and improving. With ADVANCE, it is possible to upgrade quickly and affordably, with less room downtime or disturbance to their guests. It is a seamless process.”
Onity’s ADVANCE RFID locking solution is engineered utilizing the secure and reliable reader technology, which is MiFare® and NFC (Near Field Communication) compatible, and meets the most stringent standards in the industry, including ISO14443A and ISO14443B (part 4). It is also BHMA 156.25 and BHMA 156.13 certified.
The system employs multiple levels of encryption in order to maximize security. All Onity ADVANCE RFID cards are encrypted with the NXP Crypto-1 encoding algorithm, used in more than 1 billion smartcards throughout the world. For even more advanced security, Onity has taken the additional step of further encrypting the information which is encoded on the MiFare token and passed over the ADVANCE RFID lock reader. This encryption is unique to Onity, and provides an extra level of protection by ensuring that newly-encoded cards will cancel out lost/stolen cards once used in the locks, rendering them invalid.
ADVANCE RFID also offers a selection of aesthetic options, including finishes, handle designs, and cover plates that allow hoteliers to blend the guest room door locks into any hotel décor.
