Hotel, motel, Holiday Inn? Doesn't matter – they may need to update their room key software

Fundamental problem

Electronic security doors would need to be connected to the system and log all openings, then the software would be in/on a central server and be upgradeable. You would have to log in at the desk whenever you came in or went out, even to use the pool, bar or restaurant.

It would be very expensive to have to replace door locks every 6 months, when someone electronically hacks them and if the lock prevented staff access and from making up your guests rooms while they were out you might consider a different system.

What do you want from a lock, peace of mind, impregnability ? Door keys were not that secure either.
