Singapore's Largest Resort and Family Destination Singles out Wireless Online Locking Solution

| September 08, 2009

Singapore's largest integrated resort and family destination, Resorts World Sentosa, located on Singapore's resort island of Sentosa will install VingCard's wireless RF-online system, VISIONLINE. The product will be installed in all six hotels on the 49-hectare family destination, which will also feature a casino; Southeast Asia's first and only Universal Studios theme park; Marine Life Park, the world's largest oceanarium; Maritime Xperiential Museum; and Equarius Water Park.

"With such a large, diverse destination, we needed a product that was going to provide the highest level of security with the flexibility to adapt to our extraordinary hotel structure," says Andrew Hickey, vice president of rooms at Resorts World Sentosa. "With the wireless online capabilities of VISIONLINE, we feel confident that our property will be using the most reliable, efficient and secure advanced locking system available today to ensure our operations run smoothly."

Electronic door lock communication
Introduced to the market in 2006, VISIONLINE by VingCard is currently operating in more than 20,000 guestrooms worldwide. The product offers a cost-effective solution for properties like Resorts World Sentosa, to facilitate reliable two-way wireless online communication from standalone electronic door locks to their host security and PMS systems, which will increase the efficiency of the hotel.

Unlike traditional off-line standalone locks, VISIONLINE by VingCard utilizes RF-online communication capabilities that eliminate the need to travel to each guestroom to perform tasks such as reprogramming individual locks or identifying and changing low batteries, as well the need for a guest to return to the front desk to change a room or extend his or her stay. With VingCard's wireless system, important functions are just a click away — such as the ability to instantly cancel master cards without re-encoding or walking to update locks. VISIONLINE components also can communicate with multiple rooms at once, reducing the number of network components required for installation when compared to other online technologies.

Built on the ZigBee Standard ISO 802.15.4 high-security open platform — the only wireless, highly-secured and open standards-based platform to address the unique needs of low power monitoring and access-control network applications — VISIONLINE offers increased reliability and performance at an affordable cost. Operating on a reliable and secure platform like ZigBee also enables smooth interface and integration opportunities for other online devices such as safes, energy management and mini bars.
