MONTREAL, QC, CANADA – March 18, 2019 – dormakaba, provider of the Saflok™ and Ilco™ brands of electronic locks, announced a simplified migration path for its magstripe users to upgrade to its Saflok and Ilco mobile-enabled RFID  electronic door locks and Ambiance Management Software. dormakaba is a total solution provider for the hospitality industry and one of the top three companies in the global market for access and security solutions. 

“Innovation is at the heart of our company. Providing smart and secure access solutions based on the latest technologies is the foundation of our business,” said Mike Lopes, dormakaba senior product manager, electronic locks (Lodging Systems). On March 13, 2019 dormakaba announced it will no longer offer its Saflok and Ilco magstripe products for new installations or renovation projects. dormakaba will continue to support installed magstripe locks until March 25, 2024. “Given the continuous evolution of hotel access to RFID technology, the retirement of our magstripe locks aligns with dormakaba’s commitment to offer advanced solutions that deliver a reliable, modern hotel experience.”
