The Digital Hotel Uses IoT to Create the Ultimate Guest Experience The refurbished Sinclair Hotel gives new meaning to embedded IoT. Technology is built into every aspect of the hotel from check-in to room amenities to hotel dining. IoT and Power Over Ethernet (PoE) are making the Sinclair more efficient, drastically reducing power costs. Now, the automation has even more value in virus defense, as its technology profile allows the hotel to eliminate dozens of touchpoints when it reopens later this year.
