The challenge

A new 5-star hotel in Dubai’s Healthcare City, the Hyatt Regency Dubai Creek Heights has 464 luxury rooms spread over 34 floors. It caters to both business and leisure travellers.The hotel required a new electronic access control system for its non-public facing areas, including administrative back-office space. The job demanded premium build quality that is found throughout all Hyatt Regency properties.


Key requirements included:

  • Electronic locks that would integrate seam-lessly with the Gallagher access control system installed at the hotel
  • A full range of both online and offline locks that could be deployed where appropriate
  • Locks that are wireless, and with a design that would work alongside the contemporary layout of the new commercial areas
  • Reliable technical and customer support from both ASSA ABLOY and a local system integrator
  • Cost-effective solution to meet project budgets

The solution

Back-office access control at Dubai’s new Hyatt is now future-proofed. Local system integrator Al Futtaim Technologies installed a mix of online and offline Aperio® electronic access control devices. To date, 25 online E100 escutcheons and 51 offline E900 escutcheons have been fitted. Aperio® enables security managers at the new Hyatt to monitor doors remotely; to open doors wirelessly; and to create audit trails for specific staff-access only doors on demand.


Attractive Aperio® component design ensures new escutcheons complement the contempo-rary feel of the Hyatt’s new commercial back-office space. Aperio® wireless escutcheons are easy to install and linked to the access control systems. Aperio® equipped doors are operated with standard RFID smartcards and powered by standard batteries. It will be easy to incorporate additional Aperio® locks should the hotel need them. 

Aperio® offered a cost effective solution that did not require any cabling, and good tech-nical and commercial support.
