The Carlyle Suites and Savoy Suites Hotels in Washington, DC have introduced a new security feature for their staff. Every housekeeper wears an ID badge that doubles as wi-fi transmitter. In case of emergency a button on the ID badge can be pressed that would not only alarm security but also point to the location of the employee. Richard Spigler, President of the Carlyle Suites & Savoy Suites Hotels said “We recognize that other conditions such as medical emergencies can occur quickly and without warning. This simple pressing of a button will instantly notify additional staff bringing about a quicker response and resolution to the problem.” The system is planned to go live next week.
