Onity enables contactless check-in at hotel properties

ketyIn these unprecedented times, hotels are looking for solutions that help preserve recommended guidelines on social distance and provide contactless interactions

Onity has introduced the DirectKey mobile access solution to hotel chains around the globe, allowing for contactless check-in and property access.

Onity’s DirectKey enables guests to securely download their assigned key to their smartphone through the hotel’s loyalty app, which provides easy access to their guest room and other access controlled areas, and allows them to bypass the front desk – eliminating some of the potential touchpoints with hotel staff and other guests.

Onity is a provider in electronic access solutions to the hospitality industry and part of Carrier, a provider of innovative heating, ventilating and air conditioning (HVAC), refrigeration, fire, security and building automation technologies.

Onity supplies its DirectKey contactless access solution to hotel brands around the globe. DirectKey is used in more than 5,000 hotels and 800,000 rooms worldwide. Since the launch of DirectKey in 2015, guests have used Onity’s mobile key credentials to open doors more than 100 million times.

Fayyad Sbaihat, president, Onity, said, “Our DirectKey solution is built on a proven key credentialing platform that has been deployed across an installed base of nearly four million Bluetooth locking devices, in industries such as real estate, hospitality and utilities.

This platform, combined with Onity’s three decades of experience in electronic locking systems, delivers a streamlined contactless solution – easy, safe and convenient – for guests and hotel staff.”

DirectKey complements the current security features hotels have in place and provides an additional layer of security with 128-bit AES encryption.
