Starwood Resort in Thailand Protects Guests With Salto Access Control Solution
Salto | Date:
Guests at the Le Meridien Koh Samui Resort & Spa, a new hotel on Koh Samui Island in the Gulf of Thailand, bordering the South China Sea, can now experience the latest in contactless access technology thanks to SALTO's electronic mortise cylinder.
Called the “Coconut Island” Koh Samui is Thailand's third-largest island and the hotel, located on an exclusive stretch of Lamai Beach on the island's east coast, is part of the Starwood Hotels & Resorts Worldwide Group and is the brand's seventh hotel in Thailand and 99th Le Meridien in the global portfolio.
Working in consultation with the hotel, the access control installation was carried out by local SALTO business partner YUMO-Traders. Khun Yupin Mongkolserm, director of YUMO-Traders says: “Thanks to over 10 years experience in the field of electronic access control solutions, and after listening to the clients requirements and what they wanted to achieve with their security system, we were able to specify a solution that was perfect for their needs. This was the SALTO IP66 certified electronic cylinder in an attractive satin brass color scheme which we knew would give the hotel a secure and reliable access control system while saving installation time and costs.”
SALTO gives total control at all times over who is able to access what, where and when but its more than just an electronic cylinder. It's also a powerful new dimension in wire-free access control technology that's part of our 360 degree wire-free solutions platform and is fully compatible with most RFID technologies.
It eliminates the need to replace locks if key security is breached due to the loss or theft of key cards and allows key cards and locks to be simply and quickly updated, restricted or deleted remotely. And thanks to its open architecture design, it can also connect with an existing security system to create a fully integrated platform, delivering increased efficiency, cost savings and complete access control flexibility.”
