Nowadays, more restaurants are relying on tech, and more companies are working to design innovative technology to improve the hospitality sector. But the concept of a smart restaurant goes farther than the mere use of a tablet with a digital menu, language selection option, and a complete description of dishes, their ingredients, time of process, and pictures.
Before a guest gets to the menu, it is the whole impression of the environment that encourages/discourages a potential diner from having a meal at the place. Lights, as we well know, are one of the most important complementary elements in space aesthetics. What the trendy technology provides is a network of interrelated components that can be managed remotely and/or through a single control gadget.
LED advances have provided limitless lighting options and designs. Numerous TIS LED lighting fixtures have made it possible to easily configure and control more sophisticated lighting in restaurants, bars, cafes, etc. Dimming lights helps to create a nice dining atmosphere. Working with TIS automation protocol is so smooth that any light mode can be easily set to best go with the music of the hour.
TIS technology has made it possible to upgrade management in the hospitality sector as well. With an easy-to-use management hub, all data is editable with a few clicks/touches. Things work smoother for the person in charge of opening, since he/she can benefit from pre-programmed opening tasks, such as turning on all the lights, adjusting the temperature, and playing the music with a single touch. The closing process is just as convenient.
TIS smart technology also makes the temperature control quite easy, too. Having intelligent temperature sensors helps to manage the indoor environment in every corner so that each spot gets as cold/hot as it needs to. Additionally, utilizing these temperature sensors is in line with your energy efficiency policies.
Music is another factor that guests notice as soon as they enter commercial food facilities. It plays a central role in creating the right mood, and, fortunately, there are many TIS A/V solutions and smart speakers to ensure a good balance of sound and visuals.
Integrating lighting and A/V systems turns your facility into a hot spot during sports shows, series release, live concerts, etc.
Also, security is enhanced with new smart technology. TIS functional security solutions are now available for monitoring and alarm systems.
Smart curtain/shade control is another benefit of TIS technology in restaurants, bars, cafes, etc. This is in line with energy efficiency policies that require lighting and indoor temperatures to be set to consume the least amount of energy possible.
At the end of the day, technology cannot compensate for bad food and drink, but it creates an unforgettable experience to go with a good meal. What it definitely does is make a difference—a big one.
