Network World: How the hospitality industry is embracing the Internet of Things

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.

Beefing Up Your Home’s Wi-Fi Network

It’s a critical first step when adding electronic control systems to your home.

In the early days of Wi-Fi, the technology served mainly as a convenient wire-free connection between your home’s router and laptop computer. While it’s still the go-to communications platform for this type of application, Wi-Fi over the years has become even more prolific in the home as you can now find the technology in products ranging from surveillance cameras and light switches,  to complete home automation systems. And if a device isn’t speaking Wi-Fi, you can bet that it’s able to communicate via some other type of wireless communications language like Z-Wave or ZigBee.

Now that so many different types of products communicate wirelessly, establishing a rock-solid network in your home has become absolutely crucial to the success of any home electronics project. That router your cable or phone company set up for you simply won’t be able to handle all that additional communications traffic. You might experience lag as you stream music, or worse yet, the commands you launch from your iPad to the lights, thermostats and other equipment may not even make it to their intended destinations. These hiccups might not be the end of the world, but if they happen a lot, it may be annoying enough to make you want to rip out all that new gear.

While you’d ordinarily need to call in an IT specialist to beef up your home network, increasingly, home systems integrators are becoming proficient at network installation and facilitation. The same person who designs and installs your home theater gear, lighting system and home automation system should be able to also set up a home network that’s fast, reliable and able to handle any technology you throw at it. When you’re shopping for a firm to outfit your house with electronic systems, be sure it has the IT factor—professionals who are skilled at setting up enterprise-grade networks.

Press Coverage: Hampton’s Magazine – Bankers Buck the Boardroom, Do Business on the Beach

From a story printed August 24, 2012: Sagg Main beach, Monday, 7 AM. Amid the joggers and dog walkers taking advantage of the quiet are what looks (from a distance at least) like people absorbed in very serious reading. The text in question must be weighty given the concentration on their faces (e.g., furrowed brows despite the Botox). One might even conclude they were praying.

They’re not. Upon closer examination, it’s not a well-worn novel you see in their hands but an iPad, BlackBerry, or iPhone. And what is it they’re reading? The latest Bloomberg feeds, of course. A morning stroll before the US stock markets open at 9:30 am is the ideal moment to catch up on financial news and prepare for a day of trading—by the pool. Dan Levine, CEO of CytexOne, a top technology company with headquarters in Manhattan that caters to a broad range of customers, including NYC-based bankers and Hollywood stars with Hamptons homes, says technology is now so effective that a banker could, on occasion, go missing from the office for a week and no one would notice. “You can now transfer work calls from your mobile using the office system,” he says. “Your PA might never figure out that you were on the beach.”
