Marriott ready to create ‘smart’ hotel of the future in its HQ basement

 Wednesday, November 15, 2017 


marriott-iot-roomMarriott International has partnered with Samsung Electronics Co. Limited and Legrand with an aim to create a pair of connected ‘internet of things’ hotel rooms in the basement of the Bethesda headquarters of Marriott.


The IoT Guestroom Lab that is a part of Marriott’s 10,000-square-foot Innovation Lab had been designed to check out everything from intuitive lighting to voice-activated room controls to virtual assistants.


This team would be offering feedback to the internet of things in the next three months prior to taking both down.


In a certain release Marriott has mentioned that its customers would start to see elements of the technology in hotel rooms in the next five years.


The internet of things is actually a device-to-device communication. For instance a hotel guest would be able to extend a laptop screen to the television of the room, a desk light would be capable of working with adaptive brightness or a shower that might be turned on by voice.


Marriott envisions that a customer would also be able to order a wake-up call through a assistant or to launch a yoga routine on a full-length, digital mirror.


The room would actually be fully controlled mainly by apps and systems that remembers the preferences of a visitor and could power down automatically when the customer leaves.


Marriott International comprises a portfolio of 6,400 properties across 30 brands in 126 countries and territories.


As a tech brand Samsung develops several things like televisions to smartphones and even wearable devices, digital appliance and network systems. And, Legrand is a French company specializing in electrical and digital infrastructure.
