Boutique hotel Splendom Suites goes biometric


Luxury apartments choose for wireless biometric guest access from Databac

ID specialist Databac has installed a high-end biometric door entry system at the newest boutique aparthotel of Splendom Suites in Madrid, Spain. User-friendly terminals from Biodit were chosen for their reliable performance and intuitive usage, as well as their smart appearance, to fit in with the hotel’s elegant interiors.

Opened this month, Splendom Suites Madrid has one- and two-bedroomed apartments of 65m2 to 135m2 and is located in the city’s exclusive Salamanca district. Biodit Inside terminals are fitted unobtrusively into the walls, in light switch enclosures, to enable guests to enter their rooms without the hassle of keys or cards.

Biodit Inside uses fingerprint recognition and is completely wireless. Inside is connected to the management control software and other network devices using a wireless locking system developed by Biodit for the Zigbee platform. This connectivity makes installation easy, using standard computing resources and avoiding any complicated wiring or building works.

Databac managing director Charles Balcomb says: “Biodit Inside is perfect for Splendom Suites. These attractive terminals perfectly complement the designer décor and do not require any structural work to the classical building in which it is housed.”

“Splendom Suites Madrid is a unique concept in accommodation and we wanted to implement the most advanced biometric technology. With Databac’s help, that’s exactly what we have achieved,” said Santiago Torras, director of The Suites Group.

Splendom Suites Madrid is part of The Suites Group of luxury apartment complexes with hotel services.
