Onity™ Announces First Latin America Installation of the New HT RFID Electronic Locking System

ATLANTA, GA., June 26, 2012 – The B2B Malecon Plaza Hotel and Convention Center in Cancun, Mexico has chosen to upgrade to Onity’s latest locking technology, the HT RFID electronic locking system. HT RFID is the newest addition to the existing HT product line and offers contactless RFID technology.  Onity is part of UTC Climate, Controls & Security, a unit of United Technologies Corp. (NYSE: UTX).

RFID is rapidly becoming the global standard for contactless cards and the B2B Malecon Plaza decided to offer this new technology to hotel guests.  

“Onity delivered a very reliable product, and the customer service we are receiving has been superb,” said Hugo Ramirez, director of B2B Malecon Plaza Hotel. “The new HT RFID lock has far exceeded our expectations and we are pleased that Onity is now our locking solution provider.”

Onity’s HT RFID replaces traditional magnetic stripe technology with radio frequency identification technology, eliminating the need for physical contact between the card and the reader. 

“We are delighted to have been chosen by B2B Malecon Plaza to upgrade the locking system to RFID technology,” said Rafael Ruiz, managing director, Onity - Latin America. “The HT RFID lock requires no physical contact between the card and the reader and offers the option to use multiple credentials, such as wristbands and key chains.”
