• Aragon is a voice-controlled automation system for hotels. It is designed to meet all the requirements of the hotel environment.
  • Aragon is the first offline voice control assistant which fits in a wall mounted box. That is to say that it can be easily embedded in the wall, or next to a preexisting switch.
  • Voice control is intended for hoteliers who wish to develop a unique and memorable experience for their guests.

Why voice control?

  • Language is the most intuitive way for people to express their wishes. Aragon allows guests to operate the lighting, dimming, heating, and air conditioning in a hotel room from the comfort of a bed or chair, with just a few words.
  • Your clients can ask for room service, order cleaning, and control media devices with their voice alone. The vocabulary integrated into Aragon is the most complex on the market, making voice control easy to use.
  • Voice control gives your guests a personalized experience, which makes your guests feel instantly comfortable and at home. In addition, there is even a special feature to welcome your guests by name to their rooms.

In partnership with SONOS / Snips

SONOS/Snips offers a dynamic and rich vocabulary. Therefore, this means that the possibilities for voice control in hotels are very diverse. Aragon easily adapts to suit every situation due to its AI learning capabilities. For example, even if Snips does not initially understand a device name, it learns on the job. It adds the name of the device dynamically in run time. Aragon, together with Snips voice assistant, controls everything in the room. In other words, commands and queries for lighting, shutters, HVAC, and media systems may be intuitively spoken in hundreds of different ways.
