LONDON (23rd September 2016) – Specialist security manufacturer, Allegion, is set to launch its eagerly awaited CISA eGO contactless lock in the UK at the Independent Hotel Show in October.
CISA, one of the industry’s leading brands in electronic access solutions, developed the eGO as a contactless lock that will cut costs for hotel owners and chains, bed and breakfast owners and community buildings.
Designed specifically for the hospitality industry, the CISA eGO has been specified with Near Field Communication (NFC) technology so it can provide the quickest and most convenient access for guests to their rooms, while also reducing the cost of wear-and-tear maintenance and replacement for building owners.
The lock additionally demonstrates the latest in wireless locking and retrofitting development as it uses standard off-the-shelf AAA batteries. Tested and shown to give up to 20,000 cycles, the CISA eGO is intended to be a cost-effective solution for Allegion customers, but also acts as a security measure in the event of a power failure by not being connected to the mains.
Trevor Ball, area sales manager for hospitality at Allegion, comments, “The CISA eGO is a true example of Allegion’s pioneering spirit. We have combined the latest technology with the features that hoteliers and hospitality providers want into a simple-to-fit locking device.
“For vendors, one of the best features CISA eGO offers is being a standalone product that requires no wiring, so it greatly reduces costs from a retrofitting installation point of view. For guests, this electronic locking solution is hassle-free and quick, enhancing the customer journey from reception desk to room.”
Featuring an emergency mechanical override detection system, the CISA eGO is fully compliant to safety and security legislation. It is compatible with fire-rated doors up to 60 minutes, in compliance with European Standards EN1634 e UL.
Allegion will be on stand 131 at the Independent Hotel Show to showcase the CISA eGO alongside the rest of the CISA hospitality range during the 18th and 19th October.
