OpenWays uses a Crypto Acoustic Credential™ (CAC™) and text messaging to securely deliver a unique acoustic key to the guest anywhere in the world. The CAC™ solution can be retrofitted to the major electronic locks on the market. It is compatible with all 6 billion mobile phones in the world, including all cell phone network technologies (GSM, UMTS, CDMA, 3GCDMA, 4G, LTE, WIMAX...) and ALL Mobile OS standards (Blackberry, Apple iPhone, Symbian, Google Android, JAVA J2ME, Microsoft Windows mobile and more).
This upcoming Holiday Inn will actually use a KABA Saflok RT RFID door handle and electronic lock with the OpenWays mobile key solution built in.
This is something that we think at least all new-build hotels should start implementing. C'mon, let's make mobile keys the Must-Have Amenity for 2012!
