Zaplox Key Centric SDK is based on an open architecture that makes it easy for hotels and developers to add mobile key functionality to their existing apps in order to deliver a safe, contact-free guest experience that supports social distancing. By leveraging Zaplox’s embedded mobile key, hotels can significantly cut down the cost and time for implementation.
Keyless, Contact-free Room Access
Zaplox Key Centric SDK enables guests to use their phone to unlock the hotel room door, thus eliminating the need for plastic cards. Once the check-in is completed at the front desk, the mobile key is issued and can be accessed via the guest app. The hotel room door is unlocked by activating the mobile key in the app and holding the phone against the door’s Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) lock. The guest can easily share the key with other guests electronically.
Since integrations with BLE locks from the leading vendors are already in place, this is the quickest and most cost-efficient way to deploy mobile keys. Getting started with the mobile key functionality does not require integration with the PMS it can therefor be up and running in no time.
Further down the road, additional features that require integration with the hotel’s PMS can be added, including mobile check-in-checkout, payment, etc.
