Rest Solution

Keeping your rooms smoke-free has never been easier 

Rest enables hotels to detect smoking in rooms in real time and get scientific evidence of all smoking events. 

  • Uncover previously undetected smoking activity 
  • Be first to know when a guest is smoking and take swift action
  • Prevent fire risks, eliminate odors, and save on cleaning expenses

Automatic Detection

When there's smoke detected, your management staff gets automatically notified, simplifying the process of charging smoking fees.

Data-driven Algorithm

Rest constantly monitors room air quality, using a proprietary algorithm to pinpoint any tobacco, marijuana, or nicotine presence.

Easy Setup & No Maintenance

Our installation partners handle having expert technicians on-site, ensuring a quick and discreet setup (under 5 minutes per room.) The sensors are low-bandwidth, connect via Wi-Fi and plug into an outlet - which means no cartridge swaps, recharging, or upkeep. And discreet so that guests won't know it's there.

Private & Secure

Rest's technology is non-intrusive and privacy-compliant, allowing you to enforce policies effectively without disturbing your guests.

The Robust Algorithm Behind Rest's Smoking Detection

Rest utilizes a powerful algorithm to accurately detect smoking in hotel rooms. By analyzing various factors and patterns, Rest ensures that hotel policies are upheld and guests can enjoy a smoke-free environment.

Accurate Detection

Rest's algorithm analyzes air quality, temperature changes, and other indicators to identify smoking behavior.

Efficient Reporting

Once smoking is detected, Rest promptly alerts hotel staff, allowing them to take appropriate action.
