The CODE_n contest, part of this year's CeBIT, turned Hall 16 at the Hanover Trade Fair into an innovation hot spot for a week – and SAG was in the thick of it all.

With the online check-in feature, a Web-based access solution that makes it possible for hotel guests to enjoy completely autonomous access to their rooms, SAG and LEAPIN / Digital Keys were successful in seeing off a good 400 competitors and entering the final round of the last 50 start-ups.

Observing the motto "Into the Internet of Things", the participants had the opportunity to leverage CeBIT 2015 to establish contacts, present their products to a specialist audience or enter into dialogue with interested visitors.

CODE_n was conceptualised by the GFT Group in 2011. Since then, it has actively supported digital pioneer networks and their innovative business models.

"We are presenting our locking system SAFE-O-TRONIC® access DS here; this has now been supplemented by a Web-based PIN code solution and thus meets the current requirements of today's hotel industry", sums up Joaquin Borge Sanchez, Head of the Door and Furniture Locking System Business Division. An online check-in system has been established in conjunction with the software developers at LEAPIN / Digital Keys; this makes flexible access via a PIN code, NFC or also via the conventional RFID card possible for guests using a smartphone app.
