Chances are you don’t give much thought to your room key until something annoying happens. For instance: It’s the end of a long day rolling dice at the casino and all you want to do is crash.
You blearily locate the doorway of your hotel room and dig into your pocket. Your fingers find the familiar plastic rectangle. Only mere seconds and a locked door separate you from a comfortable bed and restful sleep.
You slide the key into the lock mechanism. Red light. Huh? You try again. Red light. What the …? Even before you give it a third try (and receive confirmation of your complete and final failure), you know where this is headed: another red light and a long walk to the front desk for a replacement key.
Most everyone has a room key rejection story. With the recent installation of keyless entry locks on all room doors, our goal here at Tahiti Village is to make sure you never have another.
What does this wire-free Radio-Frequency Identification (RFID) read-write technology mean? Well, if you’re anything like us, all you want to know is if the technology will make your life easier.
The answer is a resounding yes! RFID key fobs aren’t like mag-stripe keycards that can be demagnetized by cell phones or other articles in your pocket. What’s more, they need only be held a short distance from the lock reader to authenticate the holder. And as a contactless interface, RFID keys don’t collect dirt or require regular maintenance (unlike stripe cards).
It’s just another example of how we utilize your maintenance fees to keep Tahiti Village on the cutting edge – and more secure than ever.
