Virtual Remote Control
Airwave Technical Director, Julian Arnold, demonstrates the Virtual Remote Control
Hands-Free Remote Control Functionality
Used by multiple people over a short period of time, Hotel TV remotes are known to be an infection contamination risk and, due to the nature of their design, are difficult to sanitise.
Airwave and Otrum's virtual remote control (VRC) eliminates exposure to the germ harbouring in-room TV remote control.
The guest uses his or her smart device to scan a unique QR code from the in-room TV (there is no requirement for an app download). This launches a web-based remote control on a phone or tablet, allowing navigation of TV channels and menus via an intuitive and responsive interface.
For operational efficiency, the VRC is automatically disabled on guest checkout.
Key Features Include:
- Reduce the risk of in-room contamination
- Guests use their own smart device
- 100% cloud based
- QR based authentication
- No app download necessary
- Access deleted at checkout via PMS

Whether for a hotel environment, a restaurant or any other public venue, now, maintaining safe social distance is a priority.
The PeopleCount single entrance solution uses a sensor, which is connected to an app on the display at the entrance to the premises. This enables you to track the number of customers entering and leaving a public setting through a single entrance.
Delivering real time information to the display for customer queue communications – alerting them when it’s unsafe to enter – via a simple traffic light system.
