How the hospitality industry is embracing the Internet of Things

There’s no question that the Internet of Things can make an enterprise more efficient. The harmonizing of sensors, devices, and data harmonized into one system gives rise to context-aware computation and enables the environment to respond instantly to change, be it in temperature, light, movement or other factors. This not only brings numerous new opportunities, but also significant cost savings, music to the ears of today’s business leaders.

Press Coverage: Barron’s – New TVs, New Advisors

by Glenn Kenny

The world of home entertainment technology is evolving at breakneck speed. In the same way flat-screen televisions made the tube television as quaint as a rotary phone virtually overnight, the once familiar plasma display panels are now on the way out.

They are being replaced by 4K display, which delivers 4,000 pixels of resolution, a huge leap over the current home high-definition format, which maxes out at 1,080 pixels. The 4K display televisions range in size from 39 to 85 inches and prices, accordingly, range from $500 to $40,000.

Bed Bugs of the Internet

Am I really vulnerable?

Why risk the well-being of your home and business when you can take simple precautions to ensure that they are safe and secure? For the sake of this discussion, we don’t mean having an alarm system installed or contracting with a central monitoring station. The risk we’re referring to is more virtual in nature, something you can’t see, hear or touch, and unfortunately, you won’t even notice it until the damage has been done.

Child’s Play

A bright, colorful touchscreen is tough for any kid to ignore. And although they are meant to be touched, those eye-catching buttons can cause real havoc around the house when poked by the curious fingers of a 5-year-old. Unbeknownst to you, that little rascal has reset the thermostats and disarmed the security system. Given the amazing technical aptitude of most kids, he may have even discovered how to get at the R-rated movies you keep on your own DVR.
