The Seneca Allegany Resort & Casino and Seneca Niagara Resort & Casino are now utilizing VingCard door locks from ASSA ABLOY. The RFID-based locks are equipped with mobile access and supported by online-based access management.

According to ASSA ABLOY, the door locks are designed using the industry’s latest data encryption protocols and can prevent guestroom keycards from being cloned.

Guests can also use their own personal device for access without first having to wait in line at the front desk to check-in. With mobile access, the casino resorts can also further enhance building and guest safety with the incorporation of ASSA ABLOY’s Seos credential-issuing technology, meaning that digital key and room number information are delivered to guest devices using encrypted communication channels. The same encryption is used when a guest presents their device to the appropriate door lock reader, ensuring that only those with legitimate authorization are able to gain room entry.

“Seneca Gaming Corporation always strives to provide our guests an enjoyable and relaxing stay at each of our properties. The peace of mind that comes with enhanced security is consistent with our ongoing commitment to adopting the industry’s latest capabilities in order to meet and exceed our guests’ expectations,” said Kevin Nephew, president and CEO, Seneca Gaming Corp. in a statement. “ASSA ABLOY Global Solutions has both the technology and responsive support needed to create an environment that’s always safe, using advanced solutions that enhance the overall experience at our world-class resorts.”

For both locations, VingCard locks and mobile access are supported by ASSA ABLOY Global Solutions’ online-based access management technology. Features include the ability to receive real-time alerts for any issues requiring immediate attention, such as a door that has been left ajar or a keycard that is being used on multiple doors in an effort to gain access.
