For more than 120 years, the Kempinski hotel chain has symbolised the very highest standard of service. The comfort, privacy and safety of guests is of the utmost importance in all 78 hotels operated by this brand. Similarly, Kempinski has always been synonymous with elegant design and the use of premium materials in its interiors and representatives of the hotel demanded the same high standards of the new access control system.
“We are very pleased that the Kempinski Group has decided to use our high-end access control solution in Riga,” said Tomáš Vystavěl, Chief Product Officer at 2N, commenting on the project. “Guests in the highest category rooms now have access to the latest generation of our designer 2N® Indoor Touch 2.0 indoor stations (room management system).” These feature an elegant all-glass design with a large seven-inch colour display and touchscreen.
The grand hotel’s presidential suite relies on the 2N® IP Verso, a cutting-edge security intercom with an RFID reader, which has won the prestigious Red Dot design award. The portfolio of 2N products used in this extensive project is complemented by the elegant and unobtrusive 2N Access Unit 2.0, located at all entrances for guests and staff.
All installed video intercoms, indoor stations and access control readers are now easily controlled by hotel management using 2N® Access Commander software. This allows access rights to individual areas of the hotel to be assigned and removed for different members of staff from one location. All this is performed remotely via an intuitive graphic interface.
“Thanks to our 2N® Access Commander software, the security service can continuously monitor staff movements and immediately respond to the need for any change in system configuration,” explains Tomáš Vystavěl. “In addition, hotel management appreciates the ability to add new functionalities at any time, such as an automatic attendance system. Most importantly for the Kempinski brand, however, everything is done in such a way that does not disrupt the comfort of hotel guests under any circumstances.”
