“dormakaba developed its totally new streamlined, Saffire LX lock as the future of hospitality access control,” said Stephen Pollack, dormakaba vice president. “dormakaba makes hospitality smart and secure. Saffire LX is a sleek contemporary RFID and BLE-enabled electronic door lock with a small footprint to accommodate nearly any design requirement. It is an easy-to-use and flexible solution that is visually attractive, high-performing and integrates seamlessly with every hotel décor.” Saffire LX operation is based on dormakaba’s Ambiance Access Management Software for flexible property access control, including the Messenger online feature for connected locks. It is ideal for properties of all types that want an advanced, mobile-enabled access management system.

Today architects and designers are closely involved in the selection of electronic hotel locks. This means aesthetics are often as important as technology. The Saffire LX is available in a variety finishes, including satin chrome, brass and bronze to complement practically any hotel design. The Saffire LX RFID lock is equipped with Bluetooth Low Energy Technology so guests can safely use their mobile device to access any Saffire LX door at properties equipped with dormakaba’s mobile access solution. It is perfect for new construction and easily replaces existing mechanical or electronic locks. Saffire LX is available for orders in late 2018.

Saffire LX operates in a completely sealed contactless reader for use in all resort environments. Visit dormakaba at HITEC in booth #2401 for a personal demonstration.
