The Challenge

The Creadex Hotel in Migori County, Kenya is located along the Kisii-Isibania Road, whichserves as a connecting point to the Masai Mara National Park. While the hotel provides arange of services, management is not present on a daily basis and runs the hotel remotelyon those days. As a result, the hotel wanted an access control solution that would ensurethe security of guests, allow for remote management of access, in addition to being ableto generate audit reports.

The Solution

As a cost effectiveaccess control system, that is easy to install and provides many operational and securitybenefits, it is ideal for small hotels, guesthouses and hostels.

In addition, SMARTair’s ability to provide accurate audit trails of whowent where and when, onsite staff is more accountable, while management has moreinsight into daily activities at the hotel.
