The development history of hotel door lock

   Originally made from wood, door locks and keys have been around since ancient times, offering protection and a sense of security. Eventually, metal replaced wood, but lock technology remained essentially unchanged for well more than a thousand years until the 19th century. It wasn’t until the 1970s that hotel door locks experienced a groundbreaking transformation with the introduction of the hotel key card system.
   When hotel key cards began replacing traditional metal hotel keys, it represented a giant leap forward in hotel security, with even the most basic key card door locks reducing break-ins by upwards of 80%. Key cards have also helped protect against employee theft, leveraging hotel door lock technology that monitors door entries and restricts employee access to assigned sets of rooms during specified hours.
