Visitors staying at the new $8.5 billion dollar CityCenter, for the 2010 CES Expo in Las Vegas will get a real automation treat after Control4 installed a brand new system that gives visitors to every room access a new automation system that controls food ordering, lighting, television, entertainment and blinds.
More than 4300 guest rooms in the CityCenter and Aria Resort & Casino and Mandarin Oriental in Las Vegas will include Control4 technology, making it the largest Control4 Suite Systems deployment to date.
Guest will use a single remote and Control4 on-screen view to use the TV to set the systems in their rooms to their personal preferences, including lighting levels, room temperature, television/video systems, music, blinds and guest services.
The new mega-resort is opening with much fanfare, especially since its reported $8.5 billion construction price tag brings considerable pressure to succeed in the midst of the US recession, claims CEPro.
As part of the system, an automated “welcome experience” activates when guests open the door to their rooms. The lights gradually come on and the blinds open.The TV turns on to display a list of automated controls.
After a guest has checked out, a room can quickly be put in “unoccupied” mode, which shuts off the lights, heating or cooling, entertainment systems, and any other electronic device in the room.
Functions also include:
- Integration with property management systems to deliver concierge-type services, as well as automate the guestroom, based on check-in/check-out status.
- Sending an alert to the technical systems staff regarding problems in the room, such as low batteries in remotes.
