Smart Access Technology Company UniKey and Leading Hotel Lock Manufacturer MIWA Team up to Revolutionize Hotel Room Entry

UniKey, the industry leader in smart access control technology announces integration of its keyless entry technology with hospitality door locks from MIWA Lock Company, the leading choice of electronic locking systems by hotel chains around the world. The Smartphone based touch-to-open technology will be integrated with MIWA’s flagship ALV2 System and will be showcased this week to the hotel industry visitors at HITEC 2014 in the MIWA Lock Company booth (#1140).

By uniquely combining existing technologies, UniKey has developed a proprietary Touch-to-Open™ Passive Keyless Entry system that will be integrated into MIWA’s existing radio frequency identification (RFID) hospitality lock solutions, providing unparalleled convenience for hotel guests. This solution transforms the hotel check-in experience enabling hotel guests to gain quick and easy access to their hotel room with just a touch of the finger, eliminating the hassle of front desk check-in or the fumbling of locating a hotel card key at their room.

“MIWA is a leader in the hospitality lock industry and we are excited to integrate our proven keyless entry technology into a lock from one of the most well-known providers of security solutions for hotels worldwide,” said Phil Dumas, President and Founder of UniKey. “This partnership will allow us to bring reliable and convenient keyless hotel room access to MIWA’s hospitality customer base. It is the next step in UniKey’s mission to create a platform for how we will interact with all locks in the future. What started at the front door with Kevo is moving to the hotel room through this partnership.”

“Hotels have asked us for this solution, and their guests are demanding more convenience,” said Chris Lawrence, Vice President of Sales, MIWA Lock Co. Ltd. “In partnering with UniKey, MIWA feels that we can deliver the first mass smartphone locking solution to the market, but also the most convenient and intuitive system. UniKey’s technology built into MIWA’s ALV2 enables a platform of automated tools to deliver the ultimate guest experience.”

UniKey developed a background mobile application and lock hardware electronics that enables an electronic key on a compatible smartphone to control access to the hotel locks using Bluetooth technology. Hotel properties and chains will be able to integrate this functionality into their own app and PMS. Like passive key technology now available in many cars, the joint solution from MIWA and UniKey identifies hotel guests as they approach the door, allowing them to gain access to the hotel room with just a simple touch of the lock, without removing the smartphone from their pocket or bag.

Today, UniKey powers the only keyless Bluetooth residential door lock on the market, Kevo, in partnership with Kwikset.
