TraknProtect recently confirmed that Ruckus Networks (now part of CommScope via acquisition) is part of an exciting new end-to-end solution for the hospitality industry. More specifically, the TraknProtect solution helps hotels protect employees and monitor assets in real time.
“Through its partnership with Ruckus Networks, TraknProtect’s safety buttons can communicate to the associated cloud service via IoT-enabled Ruckus H510 access points deployed throughout a property,” the company stated in a recent press release. “The Ruckus IoT Suite can then manage TraknProtect device onboarding and security and protocol translation while acting as a gateway to the TraknProtect cloud application and dashboard.”
It should be noted that the Royal Park Hotel is currently beta testing TraknProtect’s safety buttons to ensure staff safety and comply with AHLA’s 5-Star Promise. Indeed, BLE beacons are attached to staff lanyards or master keys, and when activated, these beacons communicate with Ruckus’ IoT Suite and notify management of an employee’s exact location. The hotel is also using TraknProtect for IoT asset tracking, with beacons attached to carts, trays and other hotel equipment, such as rollaway beds. IoT asset tracking to help manage inventory, as well as notify staff when items, such as food carts or bed trays, should be picked up, or when assets have left the property.
