I heard about this during the stay....
I met Scott in London while he was staying in this hotel and experiencing what was a losing battle with his room... which amazingly he had not trashed (though that would have required a separate app)

It was funny for me to listen to his experiences... I am not going to so readily complain about flakey hotel WiFi again.

I can only see a configuration problem. What hotel was this? -Susan

Always bring your own connectivity (and lighting, blinds, emergency tools). Especially when you'll be somewhere remote... remotely modern!

Let's spare the hotel the notariety of being named, let's just say it's still new enough that the top floors are still under construction! Wonder how they got such old Android tablets?

Re: I heard about this during the stay....
I'm wondering why a hotel room would seem the ideal place for IoT unless management thinks it can save money by turning off lights, controlling water temp and generally limiting power consumption.

In which case, having lights that come on in the middle of the night, remote controls that never sleep and water that is too hot seems to defeat all the purposes, for hotel owner and guest alike. 

And I'm guessing they bought the Android tablets in bulk before massive construction delays...

At least the elevators had buttons for the floors!

Hotels - the first customers of IoT
I see restaurants, airlines and hotels as the early adopters of IoT. Given their obvious cost savings, relative ease of deployment and numerous use cases; it's an easy sell. Such bad experiences will only be the beginnings.

Re: I heard about this during the stay....
I find this interesting and would love to have an IoT experience in any hotel I go to. As we move forward, this is be eventually fine tuned to perfection, as with every new technology. There should have been maybe an option for all devices to revert to manual :) as a backward compatible feature.
