Virdee and dormakaba Partner to Provide Seamless Solution for Digital Check-In and Access

Guests, residents and the owners that serve them benefit from  innovative access control and visitor engagement 

AUSTIN, Texas– April 14, 2021 – Virdee, a SaaS company serving the lodging, multifamily and commercial real estate industries, announced today an integration with dormakaba’s mulithousing smart lock access control solutions. The partnership provides customers and third-party integrators with a seamless solution for digital check-in and visitor engagement at buildings with dormakaba products.

The Virdee platform not only supports property access through the dispensing of key cards from Virdee’s Virtual Reception kiosk, but also through mobile keys via Virdee’s mobile application. Keys are only issued when a visitor’s identity has been securely verified and matches the record on file in the property management system.

  • Partnering to provide mobile key accessibility: Touch-free access is crucial in high contact public places. Transition to contactless, barrier-free and user-friendly access is quickly becoming a must have for the industry. By partnering with industry leader dormakaba, Virdee ensures its customers can quickly and easily integrate its solution with existing dormakaba’s RFID and BLE technology.  
  • Virdee expands electronic hotel locks portfolio: dormakaba’s Ilco, Saflok, AmbianceTM, System 6000 and Atlas product brands offer a complete selection of guest room locking and access management solutions. As travelers look for accommodations that provide a safe, secure entry, Virdee continues to work directly with leading manufacturers to ensure seamless implementation of its product.

Michael Kincaid, Global Business Owner, Lodging at dormakaba, said: “We are fully focused on developing or integrating  innovative access solutions and services that make hotels and the hospitality industry smarter and more secure. This partnership will help our customers provide the completely seamless check-in experience they want to deliver to their guests.” 

Branigan Mulcahy, Virdee co-founder, said: “Bringing together the Virdee platform with the best in the door lock industry further advances our goal of bringing hoteliers, asset owner and property managers one step closer to an end-to-end contactless entry solution. We couldn’t be more thrilled to have dormakaba as a key partner in helping achieve that goal.” 

Nadav Cornberg, Virdee co-founder and chief technologist, said: “By partnering with dormakaba, we provide our customers with a full portfolio of door lock manufacturers they know and trust. In addition, this allows Virdee to enter an expanded market that includes short-term rentals, residential buildings or other properties that require a keyless entry solution.”
