Amazon Smart Homes

Hospitality with a voice

As a kid, I didn’t get to stay in hotels too often. It was a treat for us to use one. This made me have a “El Dorado” like approach to them. They were always an adventure.

I grew up and found why we didn’t visit hotels as often as we could. To stay at a really nice one cost a really nice penny. Now when I travel for business I use them. (A quick side note here. Personally I love using Air BnB’s. I like having a house like setting. I believe this is what pushed Amazon to offer this new idea to hotels.)

Amazon for Hospitality is a good move for both the Hotel industry and Amazon itself.

My house uses both Google Home and Alexa. I can do almost anything I need to do while at home. This also is the case when others visit my house. I have code written to help feed my animals (a quick few words and you know how much Maui gets versus Akroma Zone), I have words for total light shut off, and I have playlist premade for people to use with another command.

To make hotel stays more enjoyable and “home like,” this is a great idea.

Here are just a few things that guest will be able to do with Alexa in their Hotel room:

  • Play music by station, genre, and artist
  • Control in-room devices by voice
  • Find local business and servies
  • “Alexa, order room service.”
  • “Alexa, send up two more towels.”
  • “Alexa, call the front desk.”
  • COMING SOON: Have clients connect to their personal Amazon account, allowing them to call their contacts, play their music and their Aubile audiobooks.

This is a great idea! you can make rules and code to set up automated responses and send the right requests to the right department.

Imagine coming to a hotel and feeling like home with a personalized program. I hope most hotels pick this up…especially Vegas Hotels.
