  • Poor safety: The key to the traditional mechanical hotel lock is easily copied or lost, and it can also be easily pried or destroyed, which creates hidden safety hazards.
  • Insufficient use: Traditional mechanical hotel locks require a physical key to unlock. If the key is lost or damaged, the lock needs to be reorganized, which takes a lot of time, financial resources, and energy.
  • High maintenance costs: Traditional mechanical key hotel locks must replace key components such as keys, lock cylinders, etc., and the maintenance cost is relatively high.
  • Unable to track records: Traditional mechanical key hotel locks cannot record the time and personnel information of unlocking. If there is a problem, it cannot be tracked and cannot provide effective management and services.

Therefore, more and more hotels have begun upgrading their old manual key hotel locks to keyless electronic ones, such as Bluetooth mobile or Mifare RFID hotel door locks with detailed management services.

Although there are many advantages of the TEMIC hotel lock, such as convenient unlocking, cheap, etc., there are still some shortcomings, mainly including:

  • Poor stability: The stability of the TEMIC hotel lock is poor, and it is vulnerable to external interference and failure, such as electromagnetic waves and other interference.
  • It is not suitable for harsh environments: TEMIC hotel lock electronic components are more sensitive and are easily damaged by debris such as seawater, sand, and dust. Therefore, they are not suitable for use in harsh environments such as coastal, desert, and other environments.
  • Safety hidden dangers: Although the TEMIC hotel lock is cheaper, it has certain security risks because it uses Temic RFID technology to unlock, so hackers can easily hack Temic RFID key cards.

In summary, there are some shortcomings in the TEMIC hotel lock. You can try to upgrade your Temic RFID hotel lock system to Mifare or Bluetooth hotel door lock systems.

The magnetic stripe hotel lock is a traditional hotel door lock. The disadvantages mainly include the following points:

  • Low safety: Hackers easily copy and attack magnetic stripe hotel locks, causing hidden safety hazards.

  • Low efficiency: The magnetic stripe card hotel lock requires manual replacement of magnetic cards. Management is relatively cumbersome, and work efficiency is low.
  • Maintenance: The magnetic card hotel lock must be cleaned regularly. Otherwise, it is easy to fail.
  • The cost of replacement parts is high: When the magnetic stripe key card is lost, buying a newly compatible magnetic stripe card is higher.

To overcome the shortcomings of the magnetic card hotel lock, it is an effective choice to upgrade to the RFID hotel lock or Bluetooth APP hotel lock.

Access Codes Hotel Locks Upgrading

Access Codes Hotel Locks Upgrading

The Access Codes hotel lock is not completely unsuitable for the hotel, but compared to other types of door locks, it has some limitations, such as:

  • Low Security: Compared to traditional mechanical or smart door locks, password locks are less secure. Some password locks may be at risk of being cracked.
  • Poor convenience: In the actual use process, the password lock requires guests to memorize passwords and perform input operations, which may be inconvenient for some older or physical customers.
  • Operation complexity: For guests unfamiliar with the password lock, the initial operation may take some time to be familiar with and master, affecting the guest’s experience.
  • Changing the password frequently: For guests who have left, if the password is not changed in time, then when other guests stay, other guests who have left can still use the original password to open the door.

Therefore, hotels should consider upgrading the password hotel lock to the MiFare RFID hotel lock or remotely controlling by the mobile phone at the right time.
