Travelers aren't just bringing mobile devices to your hotel, they are packing Bluetooth-enabled smartphones and tablets with the ability to stream their music wirelessly for more personalized in-room entertainment. Today, Hotel Technologies is introducing two stylish iHome audio solutions that enable hotel guests to feel a little more like home. The iHome HBN20 FM Stereo Alarm Clock Radio with NFC Bluetooth and USB Charging, and the iBN26 NFC Bluetooth Stereo Speaker System with Speakerphone and USB Charging, will be on display in Booth No. 2720 at the International Hotel/Motel & Restaurant Show, November 9 to 12, at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center in New York.
"Bluetooth technology is a worldwide wireless standard that will be around for many, many years," said Ely Ashkenazi, Hotel Technologies National Sales Manager. "It's affordable and fully automated, with low interference and low power consumption technology that consumers find easy-to-use and convenient. That's why Hotel Technologies is unveiling two new iHome products at IH/M&RS that leverage the best of NFC and Bluetooth capabilities. These products will enable guests to stream music up to 30 feet and enjoy true stereo sound through both units’ Reson8® speaker chambers, designed for superior sound quality, clarity, depth and power. Even guests' phone conversations come across crisp and clear using the iBN26 Speakerphone.
"Hotel Technologies is known for bringing the 'Science of Feeling at Home™' to travelers, and today we are using the world's coolest technology to create hot in-room products that command attention," he said. "The HBN20 and iBN26 both give guests a reason to want to stay in their rooms and enjoy the remarkable in-room audio experience."
The HBN20 FM Stereo Alarm Clock Radio with NFC Bluetooth and USB Charging uses NFC technology to make touch-to-connect with Bluetooth super quick and easy. Guests can wake to Bluetooth audio, FM radio, or select from four alarm tones. The HBN20 offers a Gentle Wake feature that peacefully awakens guests with gently ascending alarm volume. The unit's Single Day Alarm feature prevents unwanted alarms from sounding, while its Sure Alarm battery backup maintains clock settings and ensures alarm wake time in case of power failures. Instructions for both alarm setting and Bluetooth connectivity is printed on the cabinet.
The iBN26 NFC Bluetooth Stereo Speaker System with Speakerphone and USB Charging is the perfect space-saving, wireless audio solution for desks and conference rooms. Like the HBN20, guests may wirelessly stream their music through the NFC Bluetooth connection. In addition to Reson8 speaker chamber technology, the iBN26 adds SRS TruBass for superior sound. A built-in microphone, ATI SoundClear® voice echo cancellation and answer-and-end controls make using the speakerphone a breeze.
A USB port on both devices makes charging and playing any mobile devices a snap.
