These are hotel locks that operate with programmable cards.
There are basically two types, the card insertion and card
Teso Tech LTD markets and installs latest versions using card
proximity reading rather than insertion.
Proximity types are more recent and have an advantage over the
insertion types because they work faster and are more
efficient. A guest probably drunk, tipsy, in a hurry or trying to
escape from danger doesn’t have to struggle with locating
the card slit on the door lock to insert the card. All he or she has
to do is bring the card close (about 20mm) to the lock to
gain entry. The lock features are as follows:
(a) Locks are powered by use finger size (AA) batteries, which can last for up to 18
months, but warns during the last 3 months for the user to replace the batteries. Battery
replacement is very simple, can be done by virtually anyone and does not require any
special skills. If the battery replacement warning is carelessly ignored or if any unit
becomes faulty, the locks have conventional keys that can be used to bypass the card
access so that the lock can at the interim, function as an ordinary lock.
(b) User friendly software is installed in the receptionist’s computer with a card reader
hardware connected. To check in a guest, a card is inserted in the reader and
programmed to open the room selected by the guest. The card is usually programmed to
contain the following information:
– Name of customer.
– Duration of stay: – Access to the room ceases at the expiration of programmed duration
– Room data, checkin and checkout times and dates.
(c) The smart card used for the locks also operates the card switch / energy saver which
replaces the conventional wall switch for operating the room light. Energy Saving Card
Switch can be installed in rooms to disable power from selected equipment in the room in
a case where the guest is not in the room. Refrigerators for example are expected to be on
when the guest is absent, while air conditioners and room lights should be off. Also this
card switch disables the selected equipment when the duration paid for expires.
(d) Hotel management and staff identity cards can be selectively programmed to have
access to some or all rooms for clean up, laundry, room service or other purposes. Lock
system keeps information of all entrances into rooms which can be retrieved to know who
entered the rooms and at what time.
(e) User friendly and easy-to-use desktop computer software has the following features:
– Gives information on rooms in use and free rooms.
– Gives information on used rooms that require clean up and preparation for subsequent
– Keeps full data of all guests.
– Can enable or disable any card from having access to any room.
(f) The locks are easy to repair and maintain and can be used to replace existing
conventional door locks without any major structural adjustments.
