The ARIA Resort & Casino collaborated with Control4 to develop an unprecedented level of personalized automation for every guest room, a luxury previously only available in high-end custom homes and select resort suites. Using Control4 Suite Systems, coupled with one gigabit of bandwidth networked to every room, the hotel provides an intricately choreographed, personalized experience from the moment guests enter their rooms. When guests open the door to their rooms, they are greeted with an automated welcome experience: the lights gradually come on, the drapes open to spectacular views of the city or mountains, and the TV turns on to display a list of automated controls. Using one simple remote, guests can easily set the systems in their rooms to their personal preferences, including:
• Lighting levels
• Room temperature
• Television/video systems
Having all guest room devices incorporated into one platform makes it easy to provide “scenes” that modify all settings at once. For example, each room features a “good night” button next to the bed which turns off the lights, TV and/or music; closes the drapes; and turns on the privacy notification for the room. Similarly, guests can select a “wake-up” scene where lights and music gradually come on, the temperature adjusts, and the drapes open for a more soothing wake-up experience.
Cinemagic was one of only three companies that provided lead programming and technical service for the project.
