AElement Fusion is an electronic lock with a sleek reader accentuated by an interactive light ring that illuminates when access credentials are presented. It eliminates lock hardware on the door by encasing all electronic components inside the door itself, making security virtually invisible. Its modernistic, minimal design blends effortlessly with any style of hotel décor, and its RFID, Near Field Communication (NFC) and Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) compatible technologies enable it to seamlessly integrate with many mobile applications including SALTO Systems’ JustIN Mobile. AElement Fusion “The small, customisable light ring reader of AElement Fusion provides a discreet electronic lock for hotels looking to deploy electronic access control with a stylish, yet technologically-advanced solution,” says Rob Zijl, SALTO Systems Vice President-Hospitality Access Solutions. “We’ve had great success with the first generation AElement product, however, time and technology wait for no one. To keep up with our latest innovations – such as our JustIN Mobile app – an update of our hardware was necessary, which is why we launched AElement Fusion.” With millions of hotel guests having used the original AElement product, new AElement Fusion aims to build on this and allows users to lock and unlock doors using their smartphone as their room key with the help of JustIN Mobile. This uses the latest technology to communicate securely via the Cloud and enables hotel guests to receive their room key online, anytime, and anywhere. Integrated contactless access control “BLE and NFC technology provides the perfect complement to traditional contactless access cards giving hotel guests the choice of two technologies to open doors if they wish” says Zijl. “And by integrating AElement Fusion’s design with the benefits of SALTO's Bluetooth Low Energy platform, it is able to deliver a richer, smarter hospitality experience for guests and further business opportunities for hotels including enhancing the guest experience, freeing up front desk staff, improving security and hotel management, and saving on operational costs.”
The SALTO Hospitality solution delivers a richer, smarter hospitality experience for guests and further business opportunities for hotels SALTO’s stylish AElement RFID lock now supports the company’s JustIN Mobile technology, offering hotel guests a convenient and keyless experience with the help of mobile access. By integrating AElement locks and mobile access, SALTO Hospitality makes it possible for guests and hotel staff to use their mobile devices as a key, redefining their experience and giving them secure access to certain areas of the hotel, an entire property, or multiple locations around the globe. SALTO’s JustIN Mobile app supports mobile credentials, providing hotels managers with better control over access rights, making the check-in process faster and more secure, and providing a truly warm welcome.

"Guest’s demand for the use of smartphones and apps as part of their hotel experience is increasing steeply. More and more major hotel chains as well as individual boutique hotels are embracing this smart technology. With AElement, we extend this technology, combining the design of a stylish lock with the latest and most advanced access control technology." The first version of AElement locks using RFID contactless technology have been a great success: thousands of hotels have installed this lock model in their properties The first version of AElement locks using RFID contactless technology have been a great success: thousands of hotels have installed this lock model in their properties and millions of guests have used it. Time and technology wait for no-one however, so to keep up with the latest innovations such as the JustIN Mobile app an update of SALTO’s hardware was necessary. The JustIN Mobile app communicates securely via the Cloud and enables hotel guests to receive their room key online, anytime, and anywhere. Bluetooth Low Energy The latest versions of the AElement electronic locks are also now equipped with Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE). This additional feature allows users to lock and unlock the doors, using their phone as the key with the help of JustIN Mobile. The BLE technology provides the perfect complement to traditional contactless access cards, giving guests the choice of two technologies to open doors if they wish, and making the best of the latest developments in terms of hospitality technology and mobile application. Secure transmission The JustIN Mobile app is completely secure as keys cannot be duplicated, unlike mechanical keys or some low security RFID technologies. The encrypted data transfer uses SSL (Secure Socket Layer) AES 128-bit encryption opening procedures, to ensure secure transmission. By integrating AElement’s design with the benefits of SALTO's Bluetooth Low Energy platform the SALTO Hospitality solution delivers a richer, smarter hospitality experience for guests and further business opportunities for hotels.
