Smart technology offers hotel operators continue to invest in tools that assist them in monitoring online reviews, managing their online reputation, and using this feedback to enhance operational and guest experience standards.

FREMONT, CA: Smart hotel technology offers cost reductions and income options and allows hotel operators to achieve new levels of profitability. From operations to guest experience to marketing, smart hotel technology offers several cost reductions and revenue opportunities, enabling hotel operators to achieve new levels of profitability.

Smart energy management: Smart thermostats and occupancy sensors can monitor and respond to occupancy fluctuations. Energy management systems employ advanced machine-learning algorithms to peak demand loads to optimize energy consumption 365 days a year. Intelligent energy savings are not mere guesswork. Intelligent energy-management systems can lower hotel energy expenses and offer some of the industry's quickest payback times. They can also substantially boost a hotel's resale value.

Anticipatory maintenance: It enables hotels to monitor, measure, and optimize energy use; predictive maintenance allows them to use sensor data to spot wasteful or hazardous tendencies and alert maintenance staff before a problem becomes much more expensive. Instead of waiting for a component to fail before servicing or replacing it, IoT technologies enable engineering personnel to estimate maintenance needs based on system usage, thereby preventing system failures and reducing the expenses associated with operating a flawed system.

Smart guest experiences: No hotel can function without guests, and hoteliers can anticipate that smart technology will continue to alter guest experiences and expectations. Smart technology will continue to enable hotels to anticipate and customize various visitor services based on prior visits and aggregated guest data. Not only can guest data be used to better satisfy guests' demands, but it can used in conjunction with occupancy sensors to automate guest interactions throughout their stay, lowering friction points and personnel expenses.

Smart reserved parking: Hotels may now utilize smart sensors and hotel apps to enable customers to book parking places before their visit and have them allotted upon arrival. This technology can also notify hotel employees when customers arrive, suggest relevant upgrades/upsells, and give a more personalized guest experience, even on the first visit. It will save hotels the personnel expense of manually maintaining parking inventory and provide customers with a more seamless experience from when they arrive.

Mobile room keys and room service: Today, many hotels provide smartphone apps for guest room access. Smart occupancy sensors allow hotels to send menu notifications to customers' smartphones at opportune moments when they are in their rooms. These alerts may also include personalized recommendations based on past purchases. It reduces expenses associated with printing environmentally hazardous plastic keycards and eliminates the difficulty of managing keycard inventory susceptible to loss and demagnetization.
