Onity Deploys RFID Technology for Added Security Benefits
Atlanta – June 21, 2011 – Onity announces the launch of its latest contactless locking solution for the hospitality industry, the HT RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) lock. This new lock allows current HT customers to quickly and easily upgrade from traditional magnetic stripe technology to RFID, which is rapidly becoming the global standard for contactless cards. Onity, one of the world’s leading providers of electronic locking solutions, is a business of UTC Fire & Security, a unit of United Technologies Corp. (NYSE:UTX).
“Onity’s HT locking solution has been our flagship product for years and has satisfied many customers worldwide,” said Laird Hamberlin, President of Onity. “In response to customer demand, we have developed the HT RFID lock that requires no physical contact between the card and the reader which allows added convenience and quick access for the safety and security of the hotel guest.”
Available in various finishes, the HT RFID lock offers new and existing customers several benefits including stand-alone installation capability, the option to offer multiple credentials such as wristbands and key chains, and a simple plug and play upgrade function.
