Digital room keys

Digital keys are better for guests and hotels

Offering guests the option of using their smartphone to open their hotel room is a great way to improve the guest experience. They no longer have to queue at the front desk when they check in to receive a room key. Instead, they download the hotel app and, when they arrive, door access is activated for their room.

There are other benefits too. As guests unlock their rooms, data is automatically collected about the status of the battery in the lock. This remote monitoring of lock status is much cheaper and more efficient for housekeeping. For the guests it means locks are always working - no traipsing back to reception with a series of room keys that don’t work only to find out the lock is the issue.


What’s different about Noetic’s digital keys?

The Noetic key functionality works better for guests sharing rooms too. Unlike other systems, more than one smart key can be created for a single room and they work interchangeably with traditional key cards. So, if one guest prefers a card and the other to use their phone, there’s no issue.

Digital keys unlock opportunities for hotels too

Another benefit for the hotel is that, by offering digital keys through your hotel app, you increase the value of the app to your guests. This increases the likelihood that the app will be used. Once customers are using the app, you can use it as a private channel to offer exclusive deals and perks that help you migrate customers to direct bookers and retain them as loyal guests.
