Mode:Green, Volara Partner to Offer Hotels Custom Voice Control Tech
Hospitality integration firm Mode:Green announced an official partnership with voice-based guest engagement company Volara, to bring hotels and their guests voice control of room thermostats, lighting, and hotel services by combining custom automation and software solutions.
The partnership makes personalized hospitality voice control available on a single interface, which can be tailored to suit any hotel and its guests. Voice control is a natural method of control in the hotel room to create a more comfortable stay for guests with easy temperature, entertainment, or lighting control, as well as interaction with services such as housekeeping, concierge, valet, and room service. Voice control in the hotel rooms is enabled through an integrated system such as lighting, temperature, sensors, speakers, TVs, do-not-disturb status, and door locks installed by Mode:Green, facilitated by the Volara-powered hardware such as Amazon Echo, Google Home, or others that connect with a natural-language processing platform.
Mode:Green and Volara tested the solution successfully in guestrooms featuring a Control4 automation system installed by Mode:Green for lighting and temperature control. With Volara, the bellman escorts guests to the room and says, “Welcome our guest,” to open the shades, activate several light fixtures, and play a recorded message with a personal greeting from the hotel’s general manager.
