A Whole New World of Automation for the hotel industry

Automation is the word on most hoteliers’ lips today and it should be. By 2020, hotels will be able to assign IP addresses to almost any device.

Within such a setup, the possibilities for automation are endless! Establishments are no longer restricted to automating only repetitive tasks. Managers can now anticipate even infrequent occurrences. For instance, a heater encountering any problems would be able to transmit a message to the manufacturing company. This would ensure timely servicing before any serious malfunction.

Automation like this can have a massive impact on the guest experience as well. There is the possibility of creating guest profiles that record visitor preferences enabling the hotel manager to replicate conditions of the guest the next time the guest visits. Most of these preferences are selected on digital appliances and gadgets such as televisions, thermostats and so on.
