The system currently includes a distant check-in system with the perspective of developing an entirely self-check-in system.

VKEE also offers a personal key system which replaces the old cards, which we often lose. The key not only opens your room, but also every piece of furniture inside. It’s your personal handle. In addition, the system has a system for complete disinfection of the keys at reception, as well as an option of a personal disinfection box in the room. It can disinfect your keys, phone, wallet and other small items in less than few minutes.
