Smart door locks give agencies, service providers and rental platforms a competitive edge whatever their size

New market forecasts predict continued strong growth in the European holiday rentals market. The data and trends also hint at ways small, medium- and global-sized providers can ensure their short-term rental portfolio stays ahead of the competition. According to exclusive SAC Insight research* commissioned by ASSA ABLOY, from a base of ‘ 23.28bn in 2016, the European holiday rentals market will be worth ‘ 32.5bn by 2023.

Compound annual growth (CAGR) is forecasted at 5.8%. For the segment incorporating agencies and other booking platforms, the numbers are equally encouraging. SAC Insight expects European revenue in the agent market to grow from ‘ 14.55bn to ‘ 20.93bn over the same period. Estimated CAGR is 5.1%, a healthy rate for holiday rentals agencies and the blossoming service ecosystem that surrounds them. For modern travellers, the smartphone is their remote control for any trip. It s a boarding pass, a credit card, a travel guide why not a door key, too? The growth through sales and acquisitions of international players like Airbnb, HomeAway, Wimdu and Tripadvisor will continue. Yet smaller, often localised, increasingly professional agents, individuals and booking platforms still generate almost 90% of holiday rentals revenue across Europe. A winning strategy, whatever your scale One important success factor is the value proposition of a holiday rental versus a hotel or hostel at a similar price.

Its perceived value includes service and the authenticity a holiday rental offers. But as hotels innovate with keyless check-in via app in Starwood properties, for example can rentals compete for convenience? Absolutely, if they keep pace with the modern traveller. Small providers can use deep local knowledge to ensure properties stay on the right side of local regulations, for example, ensuring guests a hassle-free stay. This will be critical for agencies targeting business travellers seeking short-term, city-centre rentals. More data from SAC Insight points, unsurprisingly, towards faster growth in online revenue, at 9.8% annually versus 3.8% for offline booking. Small-scale landlords cannot match global brands for SEO or advertising spend, so the importance of online reviews and positive word-of-mouth marketing will grow. In other words, target customer satisfaction. This is where a smart door lock provides concrete assistance and potentially, a competitive advantage.

Get smart renting and forget about keys Tired of handing over keys? For modern travellers, the smartphone is an essential companion; they treat a mobile as their remote control for any trip. It s a boarding pass, a credit card, a travel guide why not a door key, too? The technology is already available and affordable for rental booking agencies and the property owners they represent. Potential admin benefits for agents are obvious. With a smart door lock, you spend less time managing physical keys; you eliminate the risk of lost or stolen keys, and unauthorised copying. It s less hassle all round. If every smart door lock in your portfolio connects to a single system, even one with additional smart home features, managing multiple properties is easier. The best smart door locks can be operated via an app, whether stand-alone or as part of an integrated smart home system.

Key handling is not just an agent problem; it s a big worry for guests, too. With a smart door lock, they will never get locked out. A PIN code or smartphone app opens the front door, so there s no need to carry keys or worry about losing them. With a smart door lock, it s easy for everyone in a group to come and go as they please, because each guest can have their own temporary key. Harmonious groups are happier groups! High occupancy and satisfied customers In Italy, boutique agency Home at Hotel has already reaped the benefits of installing smart door locks on urban holiday rentals in Milan, Rome and Cagliari. Properties are secured with an ENTR lock from Yale and integrated with the user-friendly SCLAK (www.sclak.com) app-powered access system. With ENTR and the SCLAK system, it s easier for Home by Hotel to offer value-added services, including breakfast delivery, grocery shopping and extra cleaning on demand. It s straightforward for agency staff to open doors remotely to admit a cleaner or cook, for example.

Home at Hotel apartments fitted with an ENTR smart door lock receive, on average, a 9/10 customer satisfaction rating No longer are apartment keys running around with the risk of being lost or copied, says Francesco Postiglioni from Home at Hotel. We can see when a guest has left the flat and can inhibit access if they do not respect the rules. We also have full control over our service suppliers, with the exact time they spend in the flat and when an apartment is ready for the next guest. With ENTR from Yale, Home at Hotel entrusts their clients to a lock brand with decades of history securing Europe s homes and offices. Smarter locks make more satisfied guests, which in turn means more return visits and better online reviews for our clients in the holiday rentals business, confirms Omer Sagi, Smart Door Lock Business Development Director at ASSA ABLOY. The outcome has been tangible for this rental agency: Home at Hotel apartments fitted with an ENTR smart door lock receive, on average, a 9/10 customer satisfaction rating. Occupancy is 80%. Get more business from business Looking forward, there are opportunities in short-term rentals for business travel. But here more than anywhere, clients expect a seamless, professional experience.

A smart door lock is one simple way for an agency to enable round-the-clock check-in and check-out, without creating extra work or incurring added staff costs. This is so important, in fact, that Airbnb now require check-in without a person-to-person key handover to qualify for Business Travel Ready status. Business travel will remain a major growth area for Airbnb (and therefore also for the service provider ecosystem that surrounds it). Deals with corporate travel specialists including CWT and Flight Centre**** are already in place. Professional touches such as a smart door lock will help small and medium-sized agencies to grab a slice of this booming market for themselves. With a smart door lock, rental agencies can charge a premium, and still expect the convenience benefits to be reflected in customer satisfaction, positive word-of-mouth, return visits and favourable online reviews. A new eight-page report from ASSA ABLOY Europe s holiday rentals market is packed with more exclusive data and charts, plus expert insight on the European holiday rentals sector and how smart door locks can help you serve it better. * SAC Insight, Europe Vacation Rental Market Analysis and Forecast (2017 2023) About ASSA ABLOY ASSA ABLOY is the global leader in door opening solutions, dedicated to satisfying end-user needs for security, safety and convenience.

How public CCTV operators can avoid eye-watering fines under the GDPR

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) comes into force across the EU including the UK from 25 May 2018. With fines for non-compliance potentially being a staggering 79 times greater than under the existing data protection regime, the stakes for organisations in a range of sectors are enormous. As security practitioners are well aware, a CCTV image featuring people counts as personal data just like a date of birth or someone s marriage status or political views.

Jean-Philippe Deby, business development director for Europe at Genetec, very kindly shared his thoughts on the implications for CCTV operators and the wider security industry with IFSEC Global. The conversation touched upon the importance of CCTV gap analyses, managing authorisations and privacy by design, as well as how the GDPR could accelerate adoption rates in the surveillance-as-a-service market. (How physical access systems will be affected by GDPR was also topic under discussion during IFSEC 2017.) IFSEC Global: What are the implications of the forthcoming GDPR on how organisations manage their CCTV systems? Jean-Philippe Deby: I ve heard that the UK was very vocal and implemented this regulation prior to Brexit. So even post-Brexit, from what I understand, the UK will still apply the regulation. Effectively, as this is a regulation and not a directive, all EU countries have agreed to apply it. A fundamental notion of the European Privacy Regulation is that you need to get explicit consent when you acquire people s data. On top of the way they collect information, there s now the notion of responsibility or accountability on how organisations hold this data. The regulation is telling them this is what you know you can or can t do . If they are irresponsible they will be fined.

If they are hacked and data is compromised, they have 72 hours to disclose it to the public authorities otherwise they will also be fined. Because of the lack of consent and the mass accumulation of data, public CCTV basically falls under the category of high-risk data As we speak, organisations as well as the industry as a whole, are reviewing the regulation to determine the steps that need to be taken in order to meet their obligations. How CCTV comes into play is especially interesting for public CCTV. As we know, it s impossible to get the explicit consent of people being filmed. You can obviously announce that you have CCTV in the train station or store, which is how it s done today, but the specific person being filmed can t say hey, I don t want you to record my images. As part of the regulation there s actually a notion that certain data constitutes a higher risk to a person s rights, where organisations need to make a data protection impact assessment test. Because of the lack of consent and the mass accumulation of data, public CCTV basically falls under high-risk data. GDPR Article 35 is where they mention the activities that make data high risk and the steps which an organisation needs to take. IG: What are the implications of being classified as high risk for CCTV operators?

JPD: As I mentioned earlier, it s a learning curve. There are so many different types of data that a lot of people are trying to understand how it s going to impact their organisations, but basically there are two things that come up. For high risk-data they will need what is called a DPO, a data protection officer, who will report directly to the CEO. It will be interesting to see how it impacts small and medium-sized businesses. The other big thing that comes out is that, de facto, they need to build a system which implements what is called privacy by design . For example, encryption is a recommended method of increasing privacy around the information that has been collected. Another area of focus should be the access to the information itself. Breaches don t necessarily come from hackers; they can be internal, either intentional or unintentional. So managing the process of identifying who is connecting to your system and who has access to the system is also key to privacy.

Who do you authorise, for example, to view live images or live recordings? IG: The fines sanctioned by the GDPR are pretty steep JPD : It s either a ‘ 20m fine or 4% of worldwide annual revenue whichever is higher. Many companies with retail branches have billions of dollars worth of revenue. I ve been talking recently to a company that has about $11bn in sales they could be fined $420m. Until now the argument for SaaS was around operational savings. With the GDPR it s really around helping people meet their compliance obligations There is a process in place which means companies will first be warned before being fined, but really, it s about good governance. Compare the cost of a breach or a company s reputation versus the cost of implementing a properly designed and executed solution. But I do believe that the EU will apply fines around data protection as they already apply large fines for other subjects. , Google was recently fined more than ‘ 2.7bn. If an organisation isn t careful about the way they handle data, I believe the EU will apply the full force of the regulation.

IG: It s not hard to imagine court cases where organisations dispute accusations that their cyber-defences were not robust enough JPD : That s true, but the onus will then be on the organisation to demonstrate the steps they have taken. Ultimately, it s all about responsibility. Under the GDPR, an organisation collecting personal information is the data controller and is responsible for handling the data. The GDPR also introduces another player called a data processor. These companies can help data controllers in managing the collection of information by providing adequate infrastructure or services. This is why companies like Microsoft are quite engaged with their cloud offering, because the data processor is almost synonymous with software as a service SaaS. Genetec has a solution called Stratocast, which is surveillance as a service. Small businesses can rely on our solution to encrypt their recorded CCTV, for example. It monitors their systems 24 hours a day to detect hacks or any unusual activity via our utilisation of Microsoft Azure.

It is really to help any businesses where video surveillance is not their core business and they either don t want, or don t have the resources to dedicate one of their employees to monitor the state of their CCTV systems. embedded content IG: So the GDPR could really be a spur for the software as a service market? JPD : Absolutely. Until now the argument was around operational savings. Here it s really around helping people meet their compliance obligations on top of helping them with their operation. It s an even stronger argument as to why they should be looking into those solutions. IG: How does Genetec see its role in preparing the industry for the GDPR? JPD : The GDPR is an incredible framework for something we ve been pushing now for a few years: the security of security. You cannot have trust without security.

Cameras have become IoT devices that connect to IP networks like PCs or other IP devices. So we re making sure tools and processes are available for customers to build the security policy they want to put in place, like encrypting information. A CCTV gap analysis is especially important for end users filming public areas. They are exposing themselves to high risk With certain partners like Bosch for example we even have the ability to encrypt from the camera. So it s all about protecting access to data. It s also about protecting the integrity of that data. And with the GDPR we have the European Commission and the British Government putting in a legal framework, with financial penalties, that ties in very well with what we ve already been pushing. IG: Any tips for how businesses can strengthen their systems before the GDPR comes into force? JPD : I think it s important for companies to do gap analyses of their systems not just CCTV but also how they are collecting information on their website, their CRMs and so forth.

A CCTV gap analysis is especially important for end users who are filming public areas. They are exposing themselves to high risk. But depending on what they have in place and who they talk to, they don t necessarily have to do a full upgrade of their systems. There are ways to simply strengthen systems, but this is where one vendor will differentiate from the other. Another thing is there s a lot of requests for proposals and requests for information happening as we speak. If you were about to invest a large sum of money to upgrade your analogue system to IP, for example, all the people who are going to participate in your project starting with the consultant, but also integrators and manufacturers should explain their take around cyber security. This is part of our security of security message. Again, if your system is monitoring public areas, there should be a chapter within your RFP to have a well explained position and solution to meet your compliance. Even outside GDPR, it is good practice in any case to ensure you utilise the tools available.

Our 10-day campaign for a stronger, faster response to the lessons of Grenfell

#EUCanBeFireSafe Since the Grenfell Fire tragedy in London on 14 June, the European Commission has not shown any sign of accelerating specific policies that are crucial to making Europe s buildings safer in a fire. Fire Safe Europe is rolling out activities over the next 10 days to get MEPs to call on the European Commission to take action. These actions will culminate in a debate on fire safety in buildings at the European Parliament plenary session on Wednesday 13 September.

Contact us and follow Fire Safe Europe s Twitter feed for more information. Campaign activities A petition has been launched to improve Fire Safety in Buildings. This will be presented to MEPs prior to the 13 September plenary debate. On 6 September firefighters will come to Brussels and speak to MEPs between 12am-3pm at the Esplanade in front of the European Parliament in Brussels. You are invited to come and speak to the firefighters. Photos and information will be published on Fire Safe Europe s Twitter feed. On 7pm on 12 September, a candlelight vigil in the memory of fire victims will be held at the European Parliament in Strasbourg. Fire affects communities deeply. Lives are lost, people are injured; jobs, businesses, firefighters and the environment are affected.

We believe it is important to take the time to reflect and pay homage to fire victims. On 13 September between 3-4pm (TBC), the European Parliament meets to debate fire safety in buildings. It is a fundamental duty of members of theEuropean Parliament to enable people to be safe in their homes. We want MEPs to make a difference by requesting rapid action on key policies that impact fire safety. You can follow the live debate here.

EU Construction Products Regulation has failed to boost competitiveness of European fire industry, says Euralarm

Products standardisation The EU s Construction Products Regulation (CPR) should be reviewed, according to Euralarm. The trade association representing European electronic fire safety and security manufacturers believes the CPR has not boosted the competitiveness of the electronic fire safety industry as hoped. The CPR, it says, is at odds with the industry s need for standardised product performance requirements and standardised behaviour.

For example, alarm buttons that activate a fire alarm system across Europe and the world are always red. However, under the CPR, this is not seen as performance criteria , so the colour can change depending on national solutions. This could confuse building occupants jeopardise lives, Euralarm argues. The CPR s stated objective is to help standardise test methods and foster Europe-wide acceptance of test results in order to facilitate cross-border movement of construction products. However, it also covers a very wide range of products with very divergent characteristics and less reliance on performance criteria. This adversely affects standardisation of fire detection and alarm products, Euralarm believes. Based on initial consultations, Euralarm members favour revising the CPR (Option II of the Inception Impact Assessment) with the aim of facilitating standardisation and boosting the export prospects of European manufactuers.

Euralarm is working with the European Commission and DG GROWTH formerly the Directorate-General for Internal Market, Industry, Entrepreneurship and SMEs to define and implement the optimum solution to these challenges.

Founded in 1970, Euralarm represents more than 5,000 companies and organisations within the European fire safety and security industry, lobbying for greater cross-border standardisation for the benefit of both the industry and safety of citizens.

Home automation: A beginner s guide

Home automation has come a long way since the 1960s when British racing driver Stirling Moss fitted his newly built House of the Future in London s Mayfair with the latest gadgets. The extension of commercial heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) controls into the residential market alongside smart lighting and security solutions has since revolutionised the way home owners interact with domestic systems and appliances using an expanding combination of hardware, communication protocols and electronic interfaces. Certainly use of devices such as IP cameras for domestic surveillance systems, motion detection hardware, door opening sensors and remote controls have surged, though from a low base.

The ubiquity of wireless networks using Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and to a lesser extent ZigBee and Z-Wave in the home has also helped, providing the communications channel that devices, sensors and back end software systems need to transmit, store and analyse the information being collected. Security is the biggest are of demand amongst smart home users, with sales of connected cameras and remotely controlled door and window locks driving much of that usage. But the volume and diversity of deployments and applications is diverse, including connected white goods appliances (fridges, cookers, washing machines etc) alongside audio devices and entertainment hubs, lighting and heating controls, pet and baby monitors, and even products designed to automate the watering and monitoring of plant growth. Developments elsewhere may also have a galvanising affect, particularly the growth of the Internet of Things (IoT) which is forecast to connect over devices by 2020. This vast network of interlinked monitors, sensors, computers, controllers, switches and other industrial and consumer gadgets will collect and analyse information from systems as diverse as manufacturing, retail, transportation, automotive and agriculture. The considerable efforts being put into driving the IoT market by the likes of Cisco, Intel, IBM, Microsoft and other heavyweight information communications technology (ICT) companies will inevitably help to push home automation systems (a form of consumer IoT) into the spotlight. Barriers to adoption But while there is a strong feeling that the home automation industry stands on the brink of mass market adoption, significant barriers to its further development remain. The lack of interoperability between so many different devices, protocols, networks and applications continues to undermine user confidence, for example. Home owners also find systems difficult to use, a problem exacerbated by those incompatibility issues and a general lack of familiarity with home automation in general.

Though they have steadily fallen in price, home automation devices remain expensive and are likely to remain so until their popularity reaches a tipping point that will persuade large scale manufacturers to drive down costs further by producing equipment in higher volumes. Long device replacement cycles push suppliers to charge a premium for current deployments and make it difficult for them to build profitable businesses based on recurring revenue streams one reason why many seek to push consumers into managed services contracts wherever possible. Housebuilders are building smart heating controls and thermostats into new homes designed to give residents greater control over their energy costs, but retrofits on older properties remain more difficult and expensive and a thriving DIY market makes it difficult for professional installers to compete. The potential for cyber security breaches to cause disruption is finally starting to be recognised, if not necessarily addressed. But the biggest barrier is the technological fragmentation of the smart home ecosystem that involves so many different types of devices, networks and software systems, and needs them all to work together to deliver value to the house owner. Market adoption rates One analyst firm has gone so far as to predict that sales of home automation hardware, software and services will exceed US$78bn by 2022, with more conservative estimates forecasting US$20.78bn by 2020. As ever with analyst forecasts, there can be discrepancies of definition that tend to skew the numbers one way or another however, though research firm Gartner has predicted that the average home could contain as many as 500 smart devices by 2022. Much of that turnover will continue to be driven by the larger population base of the US and China, followed by Japan ahead of Europe and the UK which are collectively yet to show the same levels of enthusiasm. Figures from Statista suggest that the number of smart homes in the US will grow from 4.6m households in 2015 to 24.5m by 2020 for example, compared to 400,000 growing to 3.3m in Japan and 300,000 increasing to 2.1m in China over the same period.

Statista calculates Germany to be the single largest European market, with 300,000 smart homes last year growing to 2.4m by 2020 compared to 200,000 in the UK increasing to 1.5m in the same period. Key players Research published by CBInsights earlier this year suggests that a lot of venture capitalist funding is going into home automation start-ups such as Nest Labs. These now fight for market share alongside established industrial automation companies which have moved into the home automation space (Honeywell International, GE, Legrand, Siemens, ABB, and United Technologies Corporation, for example) but also home automation specialists such as Crestron Electronics, Savant and Control4. Technology giants such as Samsung, Google and Amazon are also coming to the fore, having spied parallel opportunities for mobile apps, devices and operating systems alongside information processing platforms that they can exploit. Flagship home automation products to date include the Nest smart home thermostats and cameras, Sonos music systems, GE s Z-Wave components and Samsung SmartThings Hub. Amazon s Echo and Google s Home voice activated smarthubs are also driving usage by delivering Internet connected, multimedia gadgets that can also be used to control smart thermostats and other devices.
