Modern hotel showcases an automation system

I recently stayed at a high end hotel that included a easily new building automation system, the several features were super impressive, extravagant and convenient, then however, I was bizarre with this level of technology and struggled to figure it out, when I inspected in, the concierge explained how to operate the elevator.

  • There were no buttons to push, then i simply waved my key card in front of a screen.

The elevator automatically recognized the location of my room and took me to the regular floor. If I wanted to be taken to the fitness center, restaurant or pool level, I could make this request via a touchscreen inside of the elevator; At the door to my room, there was no need to insert the key card; Even if the key card was tucked inside my billfold, the door lock responded and automatically gave access. Inside the room, there was no light switches, no remote control for the cable and no temperature control. It took me forever to figure out how to make adjustments to anything. The mirror hanging on the wall was also a substantial touchscreen. There was a easily small button on the mirror to convert it into a control panel… From there, I could open and close the window blinds, dim the lights and adjust the temperature. I could select background songs or scroll through a list of films to watch. I was able to set a wakeup alarm and order room service; Once I figured out how to operate the system, the automated features were actually helpful.
