Electronic Locks & Mobile Key Interfaces 🎥

The Visual Matrix Electronic Lock Interface lets hotels easily create electronic keys for individuals and groups.

A few highlighted features that you'll find within the interface:
- VM will auto prompt to make a room key when checking a reservation in
- Make multiple keys, duplicate existing keys, or recreate keys to cancel out any that a guest may have lost
- The interface will set keys to expire based on the hotel's max check-out time on the guest's departure date
- You can create keys from multiple screens within Visual Matrix vs just during check-in

Difference between Electronic Lock and Mobile Key

Electronic Hotel Lock System is a way of being able to access a room without having to use a bulky key, this kind of lock is opened with a PVC Smart Card or RFID Access Card, simple and light just like a credit card.
Also known as a Digital Key, a Mobile Key allows guests to unlock a door using an app on their smartphone, offering safer, more convenient, and more sustainable room access than a traditional plastic room key.

There is no need to purchase anything from Visual Matrix for mobile key, the two-way already handles this.

Visual Matrix is already configured by default, the hotel only needs Best Western to activate it on their end.
