Using the Q-SYS vCore as the central “brains” of the system, it will allow the magic of creating the best guest experience for any hotel enterprise. Running the vCore on an in-room mounted PC, and using some connect Q-SYS IO devices, either by the touch of a soft button on the bed-side touchscreen and/or using an occupancy sensor, the room can be fully automated based on the guests’ needs and wants from temperature control, motorized shades, television control, lighting control, entertainment system and more. In a connected world, most devices can be connected and programmed to the vCore, all on the same network, with just a single network (cat5e) cable. A small Q-SYS network amplifier can then power either a pair of discreet in-ceiling Q-SYS speakers or a high-fidelity pair of Genelec speakers for more boutique-style hotels. With a strategically programmed bedside touchscreen, the hotel can affiliate itself with the best service partners in town and help elevate the guest experience by having a one-touch button shortcut to call a taxi service, guest services, or any of the best restaurants in town. This helps enhance the customer experience and reduce calls to the concierge. Additionally, the hotel can charge a fee to businesses or service partners to display their “shortcut button” on the touchscreen, which would help cover the cost of the entire system. The sky’s the limit when it comes to having the Q-SYS vCore as the main processor.
