3 Commercial Audio-Video and Automation Trends in Hospitality
Managing a hotel, local attraction, restaurant or bar? Get acquainted with these industry changes!
Given the surge in commercial automation and audio-video technology, today’s customer arrives with heightened expectations. Tech-drenched hospitality centers, including hotels, pubs and restaurants, grow more commonplace and accessible, and your guests will expect more businesses to raise the bar. It’s unfortunate but true: If the hotel down the road from your Frisco, TX, location offers voice control, your prospective guest might choose to go there instead.
Attract more guests, and keep returning customers safe and entertained, whether you own a hotel, restaurant, bar or resort. We’ll share a few of the top commercial audio and video and automation trends and how you can apply them to your hospitality business with the expert help of DeVance Electronic Lifestyle. Curious?

Big, Immersive Entertainment
As video displays get more and more expansive and even cover entire walls, hospitality-sector managers should think bigger when it comes to entertainment. Whether you’re preparing your new bar for a busy SEC season or building a more competitive resort property with poolside TVs, don’t dismiss the power of video walls and massive displays. They’ll keep guests entertained and therefore more likely to say “Yes!” to a second round or dessert, increasing your profits. Size isn’t the only consideration: Ensure you have enough displays dispersed around the property to entertain a diverse fan base.
Every vertical within hospitality will also benefit from audio. Spas rely on music to help relax their guests while they enjoy a massage or facial service. Hotels need the right ambiance to greet lobby customers. Restaurants require masterful sound dispersion and volume control so diners can hear the music and their conversations.
No matter your aim, DeVance Electronic Lifestyle will make sure your commercial audio impresses customers. We strategically place speakers so that music sounds immersive, never overwhelming. And our multi-zone audio control lets you efficiently maneuver which songs play in which speakers, control volume and more, all from a convenient button press.
Owners need to know that today’s client gets to try before they buy. Prospective customers can now tour many facilities before booking with augmented reality devices that let them peer around and make sure your space fits their specifications.
They also have more information at their fingertips including your peak times (More guests may visit at off-hours now to avoid a rush!), your parking lot size, surrounding neighborhood and nearby attractions.
If searchers find everything they’re looking for, they can act more quickly. Hotel guests can now check into an accommodation using only a smartphone app, and diners can reserve a table in seconds. With this in mind, make sure you’re always highlighting your business’ best features. You can get started with lighting control, captivating decor and seamless commercial A/V options, like hidden speakers and retractable TV displays.
Alexa for Hospitality might be arriving at a hotel near you, and this voice-controlled digital assistant impresses guests at every turn. Whether a client asks for towels, advice on what to order for dinner or to adjust the temperature by two degrees, they just have to ask. Hoteliers can add a specialized Alexa device to the bedside table, so guests don’t have to even get up to see their wishes granted.
