Smart home company MyLiveGuard launches new hotel smart room service

MyLiveGuard has launched a new hotel smart room solution based on its smart home software. Using existing TV’s or Set Top Boxes, MyLiveGuard can run their software on the hotel in room devices and allows users to control their hotel environments remotely through the TV or their mobile phone.

The Abercynon-based company are already in talks with an international hotel chain and a well-known cruise company regarding their new service which will allow guests to check in, turn on the TV remotely and set the temperature of their rooms - all before arriving. The company has been supported by equity investment from Finance Wales.

“We’re really excited to be able to utilise our technology in this way,” explained Managing Director Miles Woodhouse. “We offer a white label product, which integrates seamlessly with existing android devices – like set top boxes and smart TVs. Through an app on your phone you can automate and control a number of features in your room, from lighting through to air conditioning and heating. You can even control some coffee makers so there’s a fresh cappuccino ready for you on arrival.”

The platform hub is flexible and can run on any Android device, with Android and iPhone users able to access the service via an app.

In addition to its hotel check-in product, MyLiveGuard also offers smart home solutions for assisted living, student accommodation and the growing smart home market.
Finance Wales Portfolio Investment Executive Sarah Smith said: “This is a brilliant and innovative product which really taps into a growing, tech-savvy marketplace. There’s already been a lot of interest in this new service and we’re really pleased to be able to support Miles and the team as their company grows.”

MyLiveGuard received a six-figure equity investment from the Wales Technology Seed Fund, which offers investment into start up and early growth technology companies based or relocating to Wales.
