After checking in at the hotel front desk, you will receive a guest card to enter the room and connect the power. In some luxury hotels, this guest card is also used for using elevators, access control, safes, gyms, swimming pools, SPA, parking, and so on. It is easy to use an RFID card to open the door, just put your RFID card in the front of the card reader and wait for some seconds, the door will be open.
In traditional RFID hotel door locks, hotels use a permanent authorization in their RFID card. When the guests checking out and return the card, the hotel will use the same card to open the door for the next guest. As this way has potential dangers, more and more brand hotels choose a more intelligent RFID hotel door lock system.
The typical way is to set a valid time in the RFID card, during the valid time, the guests can use the card to open the door normally. When the guests finishing their staying, the card is useless automatically. During this time, if the guests want to stay some days longer, the hotel can extend the valid time in their PSM system easily.
