NFC compliant RFID locks for hotel rooms

Kaba Ltd : 06 July, 2009  (Application Story)
Kaba innovation combines with NFC phones to produce hotel access enabled through the use of telephone handsets
NFC compliant RFID locks for hotel rooms
All mobiles will come packed with an RFID chip by next summer — giving your phone the possibility of also becoming the keys to your car or house.

That was the prediction of Ericsson's vice-president of systems architecture, HÃ¥kan Djuphammar, speaking at the company's Business Innovation Forum in Stockholm last month.

He told delegates: "A year from now, basically every new phone sold will have NFC [near field communication]. It's a two-way, bio-directional RFID communication link that makes this device work as a tag or reader".

Using RFID in this way would enable a mobile to be assigned to open a door for a certain period of time only, meaning the company could better manage access to its facilities, while also replacing the hassle of dealing with thousands of physical keys.

"All sorts of things will be enabled by [RFID] — a small piece of technology, but with a complete system around it that opens up tremendous opportunities for innovation,' Djuphammar added.

The Kaba ILCO 790 and Saflok Quantum RFID electronic hotel locks are the result of many years of experience in developing highly effective Access Control Systems for the hotel industry. Both are rendered to be fully NFC compliant.

The Kaba ILCO 790 and the Quantum Saflok RFID locks are equipped to communicate with near field communication (NFC) enabled mobile phones. This means that a guest's "key" can be sent to their mobile phones allowing them to bypass the checking in procedure at reception and go directly to their rooms.

Security Features include:

* Once a "key" expires, the "key" and the access rights are deleted from the mobile phone.
* "Key" in the mobile phone can be cancelled exactly like a traditional keycard.
* System is fully encrypted (multiple layered proprietary encryption).
