UK: Hoist Group has finished their first UK based hotel smart lock installation

Hoist Group has announced the completion of its first UK based hotel smart locks installation at The Wentworth Hotel in Aldeburgh.

The Wentworth, which is situated on the beach at Aldeburgh in Suffolk, partnered with Hoist Group to install innovative RFID hotel locks in their property.

The 37 locks were installed on the existing doors, allowing use of RFID in leu of keys. As the door locks are managed by the hotel's Property Management System it streamlines the responsibilities of the Front Desk's team who are now able to issue key cards on a single system.

Michael Pritt, 3rd generation member of the Pritt family who have owned and managed the hotel since 1920: "Everyone at The Wentworth was looking forward to this upgrade. The previous installation left the doors in a disastrous condition and Hoist not only helped us to implement the new system but also made sure it looks presentable. We entrusted our business to a company that has a vision and we are looking forward to future cooperation in other areas."

Bob Durie, managing director of Hoist Group for North West Europe said: "We are a complete, dedicated and innovative partner for small, medium and big hotels. I truly believe that the door lock solution that we are offering fits the need of today's market. 
Hoist has currently 25,000 rooms equipped with our locks across Europe. This first UK based hotel locks installation surely will open more doors for Hoist Group."
