Monitor Employee Movement
Before beginning their shifts, employees must validate their keycards on Saflok Secure Shift to obtain authorization. Employee keycards are inoperable unless authorized by Saflok Secure Shift. So not only do managers have a log of employee attendance, but there is also an added layer of security that prevents absent or off-duty employees from potentially misusing their keycard access. A Saflok Secure Shift unit can also be used in a parking garage in conjunction with another common area lock. For example, the Saflok Secure Shift unit can be placed in the employee section of a parking garage or a gatehouse/guardhouse. Employees could be required to reauthorize their keycard before they even enter the hotel building to begin their shift for the day.
Proactively Respond to Potential Lock Issues
Hotel managers can program Saflok Secure Shift to retrieve data and various lock reports using smart and memory cards. For instance, information such as low battery warning on the locks is recorded onto the cards enabling managers to request reports on all locks with low battery indication. This kind of preventative maintenance immediately increases productivity and saves money.
Addresses Lost-key-related Concerns
Saflok Secure Shift helps ease concerns over lost keys. For example, if an employee’s timed-out key is found, it would not work unless reauthorized to work by a Saflok Secure Shift unit. This feature is especially useful in the event of a lost master key, as it requires validation by a Saflok Secure Shift station before it can be used. This guards against misuse of the master key outside its intended time frame.
