Onity to Showcase Serene Luxury Lock at HD Expo


New lock features sleek, modern design combined with mobile access technology

Onity , a global leader in electronic access solutions, will showcase its Serene™ lock, an all-in-one minimalist lock designed for aesthetically-minded hotels, at HD Expo in booth #1562. This small-form-factor lock combines an elegant design with Onity's innovative DirectKey™ mobile access technology. Onity is part of Carrier Global Corporation (NYSE: CARR), the leading global provider of healthy, safe, sustainable and intelligent building and cold chain solutions.

"We are thrilled to showcase our Serene luxury lock in person at this year's HD Expo. As demand for luxury and connected hotels escalates, we are pleased to now offer an elevated locking system in terms of both form and function," said Fayyad Sbaihat, President, Onity. "Designed to enhance the guest experience, the Serene lock is appreciated by designers and technology specialists alike."

The sleek all-in-one features of the Serene lock can be tailored to fit the look of any property with a range of lever styles and finishes. With minimal on-the-door hardware, the advanced lock features a small glowing halo of light that symbolizes both timeless design and cutting-edge mobile access technology to allow guests to unlock their room with ease as they approach the door. Hotel operators also appreciate that the Serene lock will have online communication for increased operational efficiencies and streamlining.

"The Serene luxury lock is designed to deliver security, efficiency, flexibility and guest satisfaction," said Sbaihat. "While security will always remain our core focus, we are pleased that our Serene lock delivers a locking system that is elegantly designed both inside and out."

Through the combination of Onity's DirectKey mobile access technology and a smartphone app, guests can securely download their assigned key to unlock their room and other guest access-controlled areas of the property. Hotels can provide mobile access through their loyalty or the Onity DirectKey mobile app, which works in conjunction with the hotel's property management system and Onity's OnPortal™ access management software.

"Today's hotel guest expects a seamless and contactless* journey during their stay. Through DirectKey technology, we can provide hotels with an innovative solution for an elevated guest experience that is convenient, secure, and reduces typical touchpoints," said André Lalande, Vice President of Sales, Onity.
