VingCard Elsafe, the global leader in hospitality security and part of the ASSA ABLOY, has completed the installation of its SENTINEL II by Elsafe in-room safes at the luxurious Grand Hotel Park. Located in the Alpine resort town of Gstaad, Switzerland, the 84-room, 5-star hotel is a cottage-style property situated amid a lush mountainside forest. A member of The Leading Hotels of the World, this recently renovated hotel features five restaurants and a luxurious spa.
“This 100-year-old hotel is the hospitality icon of one of the world's most glamorous resorts, and its guests require and demand the best security technology the industry has to offer,” says Christian Henon, President of ASSA ABLOY Hospitality Europe/Middle East/Africa. “As a hotel property that hosts guests from around the world, the SENTINEL II safe system provides guests of Grand Hotel Park with the confidence to store their valuables within an attractive, design-forward safe.”
The state-of-the-art SENTINEL II by Elsafe UL-listed safes employ the latest locking technology, including a hook-style interlocking system and an anti-tamper labyrinth mechanism that avoids reaching the electronics and a solid piece of cold-pressed curved steel door that provides additional strength with extended solid steel hinges permanently arc-welded to the door. For maximum security, there is no residential master code in the safe, so that any service or emergency openings require a password-protected service device and all openings are individually traceable through the audit trail. The safe's adaptable design makes it perfect for blending into any hotel environment, from contemporary to classic luxury. SENTINEL II features an industry-leading 500-event audit trail with in-room printout option, a backlit LED display, flash memory, inside carpet and optional inside light and anti-tamper switches. Most SENTINEL II models are big enough to host standard laptop computers, and they even include internal power outlet options for secure recharging.
