The Problem

Has anyone ever said they love hotel room keys?   Whenever front desk staff tell me to keep this key away from all my credit cards and cell phone, I wonder where exactly they expect me to keep it?  We also wanted to help our users skip the front desk altogether, letting them check in via their phones, and bypass the need for a physical key so they can go directly to their room.  



Together with Brivo Labs & Google, we devised a keyless entry solution integrated into the HotelTonight Android app which requires 1-tap to enter.  At I/O, we created two hotel rooms on site where attendees could demo our application and keyless entry technology.
