Electric Mirror, specialist in smart mirror technology, will ship its first large order of the Savvy SmartMirror this autumn. Over 150 Savvy SmartMirrors will be installed in guest room bathrooms in the upscale new Sinclair Hotel in Fort Worth, Texas.
Part of the Marriott Autograph Collection luxury hospitality brand, the Sinclair Hotel has been billed as the first ‘Intelligent Building’ in Texas. The decision to use Electric Mirror’s Savvy SmartMirror at the Sinclair establishes the product as a preferred IoT platform for the Smart Hotel.
“Savvy is the first smart mirror designed specifically for hotels,” says Jim Mischel, Electric Mirror CEO. “Offering personalised communication, information and entertainment, Savvy creates a level of luxury and pampering for guests that’s never before been seen.”
Like an in-room concierge, Savvy provides information on hotel services and nearby events and attractions, and allows guests to make dinner reservations, retrieve their car and make requests like extra pillows or a late check-out. Through the mirror, guests can set a lighting scene, lock the door, open the curtains, and play their favorite music. The on-mirror display streams real-time news, weather, and sports and can broadcast favorite TV shows or movies.
Because Savvy is built into the guest room mirror, there’s no need for special apps or in-room devices. It’s available in both a 10in and 22in interactive touch-screen display, as well as with or without artificial intelligence (AI) voice capability, for greater guest convenience and clarity.
The product of course can be customised to offer unique features and showcase the hotel brand. Hotel management can send individualised messages to guests to personalise their experience, conduct guest surveys, respond to feedback, and incorporate user analytics into hotel planning. Content, including special offers and promotions designed to boost hotel revenue, can be created or updated at any time. And new features and enhancements can be added as soon as they’re available. “This flexibility keeps the hotel relevant and ahead of guest expectations,” says Mischel, “delivering an experience that delights guests and hotel management alike.”
Savvy’s proprietary cloud-based platform is built to be easy to integrate, quick to implement, simple to manage and intuitive to operate, and allows for continual software updates and upgrades.
Hoteliers will appreciate the proprietary Hospitality Management Software for provisioning and analytics; remote power cycling for troubleshooting, maintenance and monitoring; PoE (Power over Ethernet) for low-voltage installation and energy efficiency. Built-in security features include full end-to-end encryption, real-time device monitoring with automatic lock-out, and restricted access to protect against malicious applications.
There is also a Savvy Home SmartMirror which was recently demonstrated at the U.S based CEDIA Expo and will be available globally from Q1 2019.
