The Holiday Inn chain of hotels will be piloting a new scheme that will let their customers use their smartphone as a key less entry system for their hotel room.
It will be tested out in various hotels in the US, including ones in Chicago, and Houston and it will work on a number of smartphones including Apple’s iPhone and various BlackBerry handsets.
The system will be tested over a three month period, to make sure it works and people don’t get locked out of their room, and it will also be tested for security flaws to make sure the system is secure.
This is the sort of thing that will keep Steve Jobs happy, as he wants us to one day do everything with our iPhone, it will be interesting to see if the pilot works and if it can be easily implement.
