Installation of Onity ’s new CodePro electronic locking system is underway at multiple resort and vacation properties across the U.S. CodePro, a PIN code-based electronic locking system, was developed by Onity to meet the unique needs of the vacation ownership and property management sectors of the hospitality market.
Onity is part of UTC Fire & Security, a unit of United Technologies Corp. (NYSE:UTX).
ResortQuest Northwest Florida, part of the country’s large property management network, is installing the CodePro system at several of its Navarre Beach resorts.
Panhandle Getaways, based in Georgia, has also chosen CodePro for its high-rise condominium projects in Panama City, Destin and Fort Walton Beaches.
Three other property management companies, Virginia-based Good Management, North Carolina-based Ocean Isle Beach and California-based Yosemite Region Resorts are all installing Onity’s CodePro locks in properties ranging from the new Cambridge Cove at Bermuda Bay Resort to beachfront and mountain resort vacation homes.
Onity’s CodePro locking system enables property managers and owners to instantly and remotely provide rental clients with access to specific properties for specific periods of time, without the need for a key or keycard.
It also simplifies the check-in process by eliminating the need for a guest to visit a front desk or rental office, providing guests with increased convenience, privacy and efficiency.
The lock’s code is software generated, so that it can easily be sent to users through remote media such as text messaging or email.
Individual access codes with separate time restraints can also be generated remotely in order to manage and track all access to individual units by quests, housekeeping or maintenance staff.
Since the initial introduction last October at the Vacation Rental Management Association (VRMA) annual conference in New Orleans, interest in the Onity CodePro electronic code access locking system has been widespread.
Several of the initial installations were secured at Onity’s first showing at the VRMA Conference.
