Stockholm — May 17, 2016 

Guests at the Hyatt Regency Istanbul Atakoy can enjoy increased safety and convenience as well as a chic, modern environment and sweeping views of the Marmara Sea thanks to a partnership between the new luxury hotel and ASSA ABLOY Hospitality. The Hyatt Regency Istanbul Atakoy has implemented advanced security access solutions by ASSA ABLOY Hospitality, demonstrating its commitment to guaranteeing guest safety while maintaining maximum convenience. In partnering with ASSA ABLOY Hospitality, the luxury property has also streamlined its operations by maximizing efficiency of staff and maintenance operations.

With the advantages of RFID technology becoming increasingly apparent to hoteliers around the world, the Hyatt Regency Istanbul Atakoy has chosen to equip its 284 luxury guestrooms with industry-leading VingCard Signature RFID door locks, and elevator access readers, offering state-of-the-art design that combines enhanced guest convenience and security. While allowing guests to effortlessly gain access by waving keycards within proximity of an RFID reader, Signature RFID also provides unmatched anti-cloning technology through its encryption platform that ensures against unauthorized access.

Using Signature RFID in conjunction with Visionline, team members at Hyatt Regency Istanbul also circumvent the need to manually encode keycards. Lost or stolen keycards can also be cancelled remotely to further limit any potential security issue. Visionline additionally provides properties with remote audit trail tracking abilities, ensuring that hoteliers have detailed and readily available data in the event of a guest dispute.

“As one of the newest and most upscale properties in Istanbul, we adhere to the very highest standards of luxury and convenience for our guests, and security is certainly no exception,” said Sven Hoffmeyer, General Manager of the Hyatt Regency Istanbul Atakoy. “ASSA ABLOY Hospitality solutions are an ideal fit for our operations, and serve to enhance both guest satisfaction and staff efficiency.”

Going one step further in guaranteeing guest peace-of-mind, Hyatt Regency Istanbul Atakoy guestrooms also come equipped with Elsafe Infinity digital electronic safes. Combining eye-catching design with sophisticated technology, Infinity safes are the first to be UL-1037 certified for the hospitality industry, having withstood numerous break-in tests by Underwriter’s Laboratories, Inc., as well as providing a detailed access record in the event of property loss or theft. Download press release
