Glyde have all the answers

What is Glyde?

Glyde is an innovative mix of IoT and function to improve your experience in any sort of accommodation environment. Glyde will ensure that your room is at a comfortable temperature when you return to it after a long (hot or cold) day’s work, , entering using the multi function mobile App or RFID tag. All the while reducing the volume of greenhouse gasses that are produced to ensure your comfort.

What is the Internet of Things (IoT)?

According to Wikipedia IoT is defined as:

“The Internet of Things (IoT) is a system of interrelated computing devices, mechanical and digital machines, objects, animals or people that are provided with unique identifiers (UIDs) and the ability to transfer data over a network without requiring human-to-human or human-to-computer interaction.”

Glyde is a system of interrelated intelligent computing devices, mechanical machines (Your door locks) and people (You and the staff at the facility where you are staying) that have unique identifiers (Lock number, staff and guest identifiers) and the ability to interact with each other. All the while collecting environmental data with the ability to communicate directly to devices within the room.

In simple terms, Glyde uses email, small computers in locks and a centralised reservation system to automatically tell you what room you are in and to let you in without you having to queue at reception to be allocated a key. The IoT actively measures the temperature and humidity in the room to make dynamic decisions based on yours and the accommodation provider desire.

How is the data being used?

We use the data provided to us by you and/or your employer to ensure that you can access your room, manage the energy use of your room, and to notify you of your reservation/stay across the site(s).

What happens if the power goes out?

Even if the power goes out our batteries will kick in and you can still use Glyde to get into your room. Swipe your tag, and in you go!

What type of device works with your application?

In this era of mobile phones, we don’t need to carry our bank cards, diary, notepad, pen and calculator, so why not leave the key at home too? If you use an Android phone or an iPhone, you can use your smartphone to open your door on your arrival.

What if I need access to more than one room?

What? You don’t want to carry a gym/laundry/ice room key either? We’ve got you covered. With the mobile app, you can gain access to multiple doors on site – if you are permitted. No more fumbling looking for the right key – just tap the phone and unlock the door.
