Mode:Green, Volara partner for custom voice control

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.

Mode:Green has partnered with 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 roomservice.

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 continuously looks to new technologies to enhance the guest experience, and we’ve had our eye on voice control as a natural control method in this environment,” Mode:Green President Bill Lally said in a statement. “Integrating our guestroom automation systems with Volara’s easy-to-use voice control helps us bring an end-to-end solution for hotels to deliver a new experience for their guests, as well as new capabilities for room activity and energy monitoring.”
 
“Volara’s voice-based guest-engagement solution provides a fun and frictionless way to engage hotel guests,” said David Berger, CEO of Volara. “Our voice-hub allows the seamless integration of other hotel technologies that can drive real efficiencies and an ROI for our hotel clients.”
