|HQ Bar upgraded from mechanical to Mul-T-Lock SMARTair across all rooms and facilities|
Mul-T-Lock’s innovative SMARTair™ electronic handle sets have proven such a popular security upgrade at The Mereside Hotel in Douglas that the system is now also being installed at the HQ Bar & Restaurant’s two other four star independent hotels, The Glen Mona and The Rosslyn.
Mul-T-Lock SMARTair™ is a high performance, cost efficient wire free system designed to instantly upgrade mechanically locks into fully functional access control security, with minimal modification to doors and premises.
As an all in one access control system, Mul-T-Lock SMARTair™ removes the need for expensive data cabling and re-wiring and simply operates from a unique management card, so user fobs can be easily added or removed as required.
Mul-T-Lock SMARTair™ electronic handle sets were initially recommended to HQ Bar by trusted local Mul-T-Lock dealers MC Locksmiths Services Limited, as a more convenient solution to improve the security level of all rooms on site and improve key management at the Mereside Hotel.
"We arranged for our other hotels
The owners were quick to realise the features and benefits of upgrading from mechanical to access control across all rooms and facilities and arranged for Mul-T-Lock SMARTair™ to be installed at the Glen Mona and The Rosslyn.
Says Angela McCluskey, owner of HQ Bar & Restaurant chain: “The installation of the SMARTair™ electronic handle sets came about as we were discussing our key management issues at The Mereside Hotel with MC Locksmiths. When guests leave and forget to return keys, alongside the obvious security vulnerabilities on site, it becomes difficult to run the hotel efficiently.”
“We have worked with MC Locksmiths Services Limited a long time and trust their judgement, so when they recommended switching to an access control system as stylish and cost effective as SMARTair™, we had little hesitation.”
“The system is fantastic; it was installed effortlessly and is really easy to use, even for those staff who is not computer literate. We arranged for our other hotels to be upgraded and would have no issue in recommending SMARTair to other independent hotel operators.”
Mark Corrin of MC Locksmiths Services Limited added: “SMARTair™ electronic handle sets real advantage over its competition is how easy it is to install, programme and maintain, alongside its stylish finish. These are all critical features to offer a hotel environment where any maintenance work has to be carried out with due care not to affect the daily operations, or the guest experience. With it being supplied by Mul-T-Lock, globally renowned for offering premium security, the end result is a high performance access control management system for owners, staff and guests’ peace of mind.”
Mul-T-Lock SMARTair™ is cleverly
Steve Ross, Managing Director of Mul-T-Lock concluded: “Mul-T-Lock SMARTair™ is cleverly designed as an all one wire free access control system, perfectly suited for the professional locksmith to install. Its ability to deliver flexibility, convenience and usability, wrapped in an aesthetically appealing design, and offered at a substantially lower cost than traditional integrated access control systems, ensures HQ Bars and similar independent hotel chains can instantly meet the security demands of today’s ever changing hospitality environment.”
Mul-T-Lock SMARTair™ overcomes many of the obstacles traditionally associated with access control systems as an intelligent electronic device with ease of use at the heart of its design.
