Bob W and Mount Kelvin collaborate to create autonomous hospitality experiences
Bob W is building a slicker alternative to hotels and short-stay apartments. The pacemaker company has chosen Mount Kelvin GRMS to help it create local and contactless five-star experiences at scale.
Inspired by the handpicked neighbourhoods in which they’re located, each Bob W apartment promises guests local design, a focus on sustainability, and curated nearby services. Both Mount Kelvin and Bob W challenge old habits and systems with the aim to take the guest experience to a whole new level.
More than lighting control
Mount Kelvin is best known for its simple and beautiful room controls, but there’s a whole new world to explore with sensor data possibilities.
Through sensor kits installed in the rooms, Bob W is able to set the perfect lighting when guests arrive, detect alarms and noise issues, adjust the temperature and humidity as needed, and be aware of no-shows – all remotely. With everything connected to the cloud, there’s no need for a frontdesk.
“We believe in the future of software as part of the hospitality industry. That’s why we’ve made this investment, and we plan on rolling out Mount Kelvin in all of our units in multiple countries, including the London, UK launch next winter,” said Niko Karstikko, co-founder and CEO of Bob W.
