Master key structure

With the use of RFID cards the master key structure for your staff can be configured to match your operating requirements. Each staff member can be issued key a key card that only gives the access to areas that their job demands. Should the need arise these can be changed on an individual basis, by you without the need to reprogram any of the locks.


ALV2 is designed to interface to both PMS and POS solutions, using RS232 or TCP/IP. Key data can be automatically sent to the Miwa system making the check in procedure more efficient and eliminating key stroke errors.

Auditable security

ALV2 can be audited from every angle, the front desk system can be audited to see who has made staff or guest keys, the locks hold the last 600 transactions and the staff keys hold data on the last 140 locks they have been used in. The system has been designed to enable your security and operations personnel complete control over the access to your property.

Upgrade path

Whether your property is large or small the cost of a new locking system is still substantial and at Miwa we take this very seriously, we build systems that last. With this in mind we also realise that technology changes and advances, this is why we have built a new system that can be used to upgrade our existing AL5H locks, without the need to replace everything. The new ALV2A type front escutcheons retro fit directly onto the existing lock case.
