Luxury resort gains integrated access control from Salto

Salto Systems : 03 September, 2008  (Application Story)
600 acre golf resort gains card based access control system for guest rooms and external lodges with additional three point locking protection
Luxury resort gains integrated access control from Salto
Lough Erne Golf Resort in County Fermanagh, Northern Ireland, has chosen a Salto electronic access control system to provide advanced security management for its luxurious hotel and lodge accommodation. The resort awarded the contract to Co Antrim based Salto Inspired Business Partner Ambar Systems.

Set on a peninsula with panoramic views from almost every vantage point, the 600-acre Lough Erne Golf Resort is the ultimate expression in old world heritage and new world luxury. Its two championship golf courses are set on the shores of Lower Lough Erne and Castle Hume Lough.

The resort is designed with luxury and comfort in mind, and accommodation comprises 120 guest rooms made up of 53 hotel bedrooms, two Deluxe Suites, two Lakeview Suites and two Courtyard Suites and 25 Luxury Lodges each exuding an elegant country house style. Fourteen of the lodges offer two bedrooms - 10 of which are a striking turret design - and 11 lodges offer three bedroom accommodation. Other facilities at the resort include a world-class restaurant, relaxing bar, library, drawing rooms and an authentic Thai Spa.

"With an established track record of providing secure access control for several luxury hotels in Ireland and many others around the world, the Salto solution was ideal for Lough Erne Golf Resort' comments Kieran Gorey of Ambar Systems.

'Working in consultation with Salto we designed a highly secure and flexible access control system using 85 E9011085LP5 units and 25 A965OU00IM8 ANSI SSS units in a brushed stainless steel finish meeting all of the requests of the resort. The advanced system design incorporates proximity Mifare operation, anti-vandal protection to safeguard the electronics, which are housed in the inner backplate, on the inside of the door, battery life good for up to 45,000 openings and each lock can support up to 64,000 users' Gorey continues.

The E9011085LP5 units will control access to 85 bedroom doors in the main hotel and the 25 A965OU00IM8 ANSI SSS units will integrate with a 3 point locking system already fitted to the doors on the 25 external lodges.

"To have done this with fully on line doors as part of a fully hard wired solution would have been prohibitively expensive, but through the architect and client opting to use our stand alone locks which ensure the highest levels of security, they will achieve 90% of the benefits of a fully on line access control system for just the cost of a stand alone solution" comments Aznar Sethna, Area Sales Manager Northern Europe for Salto Systems. "

"As a brand new hotel security was an important part of this project from the outset" says Patricia Donohoe of Lough Erne Golf Resort. "We needed an efficient, easy to use system that is flexible enough to grow to meet our future security requirements and that's exactly what we've got with our Salto access control solution. It gives us the ability to cancel key cards from the system when guests leave, loose or do not return them and this enables us to maintain high levels of security ensuring a secure and accessible environment for both guests and staff alike."
