Control4, a provider of IP-based home and hospitality control systems, announced that its platform is being used to enhance the guest experience at Jumby Bay, a Rosewood Resort located in Antigua, West Indies.
Each of the 40 guestrooms, suites and villas, scattered across the 300-acre private island resort, is equipped with a Control4 system. Guests use a single, remote and on-screen interface to control the television, NXTV system, sound system, DVD Player and iPod docking station. The hotel can upgrade the ZigBee-based wireless system with additional capabilities, such as lighting control and energy management without complex rewiring and additional construction costs.
Last summer, Rosewood Sand Hill, located in California's Silicon Valley, installed Control4 suite systems for its ability to give guests one platform for controlling TV and video content, as well as automated room control. Using a single, handheld remote and onscreen HD user interface, guests can select TV stations, integrated IPTV video-on-demand content, music as well as lights in the room. The success of the Rosewood Sand Hill installation led to the Jumby Bay project.
