Whether it’s through sharing Moments, sending Sights, versing a friend in a favorite WeChat game or just chatting with loved ones, there’s no question – WeChat is helping users to connect their online and offline worlds in more ways than any other chat app in the market. And now, WeChat is bringing you the ultimate feature to help merge your worlds, the ability to control your smart room all from the palm of your hand.
During this year’s Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas, we partnered with Ayla Networks and Caesar’s LINQ Hotel & Casino to showcase the first connected suite in Las Vegas. By scanning a room-specific QR code, WeChatters were able to connect to the suite and control various aspects of the room remotely through their phones via WeChat.
Imagine walking into your hotel room after a big day out and being able to switch on the lights, open the blinds and curtains and play with the room temperature, all from the comfort of your couch or bed. This and more is possible at the LINQ Hotel connected suite where WeChatters can also control how devices interact with each other. For example, users can pre-program the “sleep” scenario on WeChat so that once selected, the room automatically switches off the lights, closes the blinds and curtains and locks the door.
