Given that studies have shown an increase in a hotel rating can correlate to an increase in the all-important average daily rate for a property,it’s no wonder why the hotel industry is trying to find ways to anticipate guests’ needs before they have time to bring it to the attention of hotel staff.
In a busy, bustling world, noise can be a problem for both hotel guests and hoteliers.
One company, Quietyme, has set out to reduce noise and cut down disturbances with the help of advanced technology.
Quietyme — founded in 2012 in Madison, Wisconsin — uses sensors to pick up the decibel levels of locations. Sensors can be placed in individual rooms and are connected via an electronic network. The sensors not only pick up the origin of high noise levels, but also indicate which particular rooms within a property are affected, based on each room’s decibel level. Reports are then sent to hotel staff either via mobile device or through the main hotel system.
Huey Zoroufy, COO of Quietyme, said the technology was originally designed for apartment managers, who used it to both monitor noise levels and curb property damage associated with high noise levels.
