Tech Partners Team Up for IoT-Enabled Smart Hotel Room


The Fiesta Americana Viaducto Aeropuerto Hotel in Mexico City now features a room full of Enseo’s smart hotel room technology.

Enseo and its sister company Catapult Tech have teamed up to bring a unique, connected in-room experience of the future at the Fiesta Americana Viaducto Aeropuerto Hotel in Mexico City. The new hotel uses a mobile app and and IoT device management platform to offer a suite of smart hotel tech — including remote management and streaming entertainment.

“We are thrilled to be working with Enseo and hope that this is the first of many projects to come,” says Simón Galante. The FibraHotel CEO says, “We have a strong desire to become the hospitality leaders in technology in Mexico. FibraHotel is in a technological transformation, and Fiesta Americana Viaducto is the best example.”

Technology for Entertainment & Energy Conservation

Guests use the Fido IoT platform app and customized user interface to control room lighting, temperature, and window shades, and the platform also includes a cutting edge entertainment system with popular apps like Netflix and YouTube. Guests don’t have to download an app, log in, or even join the hotel’s WiFi. The Fido solution requires only that people pair their smartphone with the TV to instantly access entertainment and room management options.

 “I am honored to have been chosen by Fibra to bring the world’s most advanced guest room into reality. Mexico City has always been known for culinary and fashion innovation, now we’ve worked together to add ultimate hotel technology,” commented Vanessa Ogle, CEO and founder of Enseo. “The leadership of Fibra and Posadas worked together with the technology team at Catapult Tech. By joining everyone’s expertise, we launched the world’s most advanced and welcoming guest experience and also brought tremendous benefit of an enticing price point to the owners that will save both the bottom line as well as the environment. This team has paved the way to the hotel room of the future.”
