RFID Wristbands Seamlessly Replace ID Cards, Hotel Key Cards, and Credit Cards
PDC, a global leader of innovative identification solutions, announced today that Camelback Lodge & Aquatopia Indoor Waterpark in the Pocono Mountains has installed its Smart Band® RFID Wristband System for access control, cashless purchasing, and locker rentals. The newly-opened Camelback Lodge & Aquatopia is the largest indoor waterpark with attached hotel in the northeast of the United States.
Upon hotel check-in, guests are given a waterproof, non-transferable, Smart Band® RFID wristband in place of a room key, providing access to both their hotel suite and waterpark for the duration of their stay. The wristbands feature a one-time snap closure that secures the band to a patron’s wrist, so unlike a key card or cash, it will not get misplaced or lost on water attractions. Each Smart Band® contains a microchip with a unique code that verifies guest data when scanned by a reader at doors, turnstiles and POS stations, increasing security while completely eliminating gatecrashers and counterfeiting.
Serving as a convenient “wrist wallet,” guests at Camelback Lodge can use their Smart Band® to make instant, cashless payments that post directly to their hotel room folio. This added convenience increases impulse purchases, as guests are not required to travel to their lockers or room to retrieve money. “Guests may pass up on smaller purchases like ice cream if their cash or credit cards are not readily available. But with Smart Band®, guests have the freedom to make any purchase with a quick swipe of their wrist. This allows them to spend more time enjoying the resort’s amenities instead of walking to and from their locker or room,” said Robin Barber, Vice President of Leisure and Entertainment for PDC.
“We saw first-hand how PDC’s Smart Band® RFID Wristband System has benefited similar properties and wanted to create an enhanced guest experience that our patrons would remember us by,” said Pete Helland Jr., co-owner and managing partner for Stand Rock Hospitality. “Smart Band® also enhances productivity by park employees by making transactions extremely quick and simple. Plus, since Smart Band® has been fully customized to reflect our branding, every guests’ wrist is now an advertisement for us wherever they go.”
Smart Band® is available in a wide variety of colors, closure options and materials including plastic, silicone, and woven fabric. The wristband can be entirely customized and is offered in both non-transferable and re-wearable styles, optimal for single-day or season pass applications.
