The hotel industry was forced to evaluate their security procedures in the days and months following the October 1, 2017 mass shooting in Las Vegas. 24-hour security was placed outside the elevators at the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino shortly after the shooting and many other hotels across the country have implemented new rules and security measures to ensure guests that their safety is a top priority.
In addition to an increase of security guards, some hotels have begun using robotic devices. The Pechanga Resort in Temecula, CA recently began using two separate robots for enhanced security. One monitors the valet parking area while the other is located in the hotel lobby. The robots are made by California based company Knightscope and are currently being utilized in select shopping centers, sports arenas and other businesses across the country.
Some hotels have also started to use panic button systems to protect hotel employees. Companies such as Enseo have created an “associate distress” system to assist employees in the case of harassment or other type of critical situation. Once the wearable button is pressed, a signal transmits the location of the employee in need of assistance.
