Hotels don’t want guests to have to linger at the front desk — or even stop by at all.
This is really interesting and I’m no Luddite, but I’d love to know that there is real security attached to this. If it is tied to the MAC Address or some other unique ID that can’t be sniffed or hacked easily, this is a great innovation. Who hasn’t left their mag stripe hotel key in their room?
I guess while I have my reservations (pun intended) and I’d love to have a Zigbee system that opens my gate and unlocks my door, I wonder about criminals hanging around hotel corridors with devices sniffing for my Bluetooth ID. I’m sure these hotels are looking very closely at security or they wouldn’t entertain the investment.
