Missing Hotel Room Key? Try Your Phone

If you are like me, there are times when you will misplace your hotel key. Times when you’re switching a bucket of ice between hands while searching your pockets or bag. Wondering if you’ve left the key in your room or possibly the lobby. Thinking “I’ve always got my phone on me, wouldn’t it be so much easier if I could use it to open the door.” OK, maybe I’ve never thought that last bit, but the folks at high-security lock makers Assa Abloy apparently have. They’re running a four-month trial of their Mobile Key technology at the Clarion Hotel in Stockholm. Essentially a guest checks in with a phone and the room key is sent directly to the device. No more misplaced keys.
