Managing a hotel is no easy task, especially from the standpoint of foot traffic and security. At State Systems, we specialize in installing commercial security systems for hotels and other commercial buildings. An access control system, for example, keeps some areas off-limits to certain guests and staff while granting access to others.

For more information on access control systems for hotels located in the Mid-South, call State Systems at 901-531-6550, or keep reading to learn more.

Hotel Access Control for Staff & Guests

Imagine a hotel with standard locks and keys. Cleaning crews and other hotel staff would have to carry key rings the size of dinner plates, and hotel room door locks would have to be changed with each new guest.

Access cards are a much simpler solution. Cleaning crews are equipped with access cards that grant them entry to every suite as well as laundry rooms and janitorial or storage closets. Kitchen staff members have key cards that let them in and out of the kitchen and dining areas. All the while, guests have a card that opens no other doors but their own room and public areas that are off-limits to non-guests, such as the pool and gym. These can all also be controlled and deactivated remotely.

Hotel Guest Privacy

Hotel patrons understand that cleaning crews have keys to their room for housekeeping and security reasons. However, the knowledge that no other guest can access their room is a vital part of privacy when staying at a hotel. Even guests who stayed previously can no longer access the room because their access cards are deactivated once they check out.

It’s the balance between security and privacy that makes a modern hotel a comfortable place for guests to stay—and it’s all possible with an access control system.

More About Hotel Safety & Security

Many hotels have sensitive areas that require restricted access—behind reception counters, in offices where financial information is stored, and even rooms with safes holding cash to be deposited at the bank are just a few examples.

An access control system determines who has the authority to enter each room in your hotel. Even entire floors can be designated as restricted access areas, with elevators programmed to only carry people there if they swipe the right key card. You can implement this level of security to keep guests out of restricted staff-only areas, or you can use it for added guest safety. With this option, only hotel guests can access elevators that take them up to the rooms, keeping suspicious characters at bay.
