Control4 Unveils Suite Systems Concierge Service, Allowing Hotels to Personalize, Customize the Guest Experience

Digital Application Store Connects Hotel Guests With 'Must Have' Information and Services, Also Boosts Hotel Green Efforts in the Process

ANAHEIM, CA--(Marketwire - June 23, 2009) - HITEC 2009 -- Control4, a leader in affordable, IP-based home control and entertainment systems, today launched Control4® Suite Systems Concierge Service, a digital application store that connects hotel guests with information, services and reservations both within and surrounding the hotel / resort. Following last year's release of Control4 Suite Systems, a practical, reliable automation operating system designed specifically for the hospitality industry, Concierge Service takes the personalized guest experience concept a step further, while helping hotels maximize business efficiency and deliver on green initiatives.

Control4 Suite Systems Concierge Service allows hoteliers to select customizable digital applications that contribute to each guest's unique, personalized experience. Guests can easily book reservations, learn about events and order services from the comfort of their hotel rooms. They can also interact with their own Facebook and Twitter pages on a flat-screen television, making appointments to fit within their 'portal' schedule of events:

--  Schedule application -- offers a personalized calendar of events
    
--  Reservation application -- allows guests to make reservations for spa
    treatments, dining reservations with the hotel and via Open Table, golf tee
    times and other activities offered by the property
    
--  Room service application -- allows guests to request room service,
    'turn down service,' towels and room cleaning
    

The customizable Hotel Application Store provides a platform in which hotels / resorts can select applications to offer their guests during their stay, both within and surrounding the property. Hotels also save printing-related costs by eliminating the need for hard copy Compendium Books in each room. With a digital compendium, information, events and room service menus can change instantly and often to accommodate real-time updates and daily specials.

"Hoteliers face a difficult balancing act, managing costs, 'green-optimizing' their properties and making the guest experience a personalized and memorable one," said Will West, chief executive officer, Control4. "We've been working closely with hospitality industry leaders during the past year to offer one-touch control for lighting, room temperature, entertainment, draperies, security and even the guest 'wake-up experience.' Our newest Concierge Service increases personalization and attentiveness, allowing hotels to better serve their guests with even more features."

Control4 Suite Systems Concierge Service and Hotel Application Store are priced at $.50 - $2.00 for each application per room per month, and are available now.
