Through an integration with Amazon's Alexa and Volara, BeyondTV provides the hotel's guests with the enhanced convenience of complete voice control over guestroom televisions, allowing guests to change channels, access the program guide and turn TVs on or off without having to locate the remote. BeyondTV's advanced virtual-assistant abilities also allow guests to instantly locate information on available hotel services and make requests without having to pick up a phone or leave the room. 

By using a voice command, guests can request housekeeping, roomservice, valet parking and can check out instantly in addition to an array of other services available via BeyondTV's virtual-assistant functionality.

Guests also are able to delete their personal data at any time during their stay with a push of a remote control button.
