“We are very excited to make this integration with Volara available on our new EOS WiFi Smart thermostat,” said Florian Gallini, INTEREL CEO. “Together, EOS and Volara provide a powerful combination of energy management and voice-based customer engagement with no on-premises infrastructure required. EOS leverages its built-in IoT radios and environmental sensors to enable any hotel to be retrofitted as a Smart Building, all packaged into a single device that replaces an existing thermostat. Better still, it is very competitively priced. We can’t wait to see our customers’ reactions when they realize how this joint technology will help them operate more efficiently and deliver more personalized, contactless service.”

The new EOS WiFi Smart Thermostat turns any building into a Smart Building with its built-in environmental fusion sensor and IoT hub capabilities. It features a total of seven environmental sensors, amongst them a barometric pressure sensor, that will soon detect door and window openings. The built-in IoT hub consists of six different radios that cover all relevant wireless standards, such as a Beacon that can serve as part of an asset tracking or staff alert system; and a WiFi Signal Strength Sensor that can monitor the WiFi quality in every room. The thermostats are compatible with most leading commercial door locks, enabling alerts to be sent through the INTEREL pathway if a door is left ajar.

“We are pleased to expand on our existing relationship with INTEREL to further meet travelers’ demand for voice control over the hotel room environment,” said Dave Berger, Volara CEO. “This is especially important for safety conscious travelers who want to keep in-room touchpoints to a minimum. On the back end, the devices are easy for hotel staff or field technicians to configure and deploy. Whether the hotel is using an Amazon Alexa or a Google Nest Hub, the joint solution is easy for guests to use and hassle free for hoteliers to manage. Volara will continue to work with innovative partners like INTEREL to ensure guests and hoteliers alike have the benefit of voice based engagement and environmental controls.”
