I think the hotel room is a great place to test Alfred, so the first thing I did, even before unpacking, was to set up Alfred. Where, in a hotel room, may be the best location for Alfred?
We received thank-you notes from Alfredians that travel a lot who found their stuff taken during housekeeping. I think if I can top their true stories with my personal experience, we will have more confidence introducing Alfred to travelers. After all, what is easier than placing your smartphone on your dresser, connecting it to hotel wifi and getting a stronger sense of security?
First thing first, I needed to find perfect locations for my Alfred devices. I want one Alfred to watch the door, one to watch my luggage and one at the bed. (After Ocean’s Twelve, you kind think hotel bedsheets may not be as clean as you assume.)
Can Alfred receive strong wifi signals there?
There is a wall socket behind the microwave and I thought Alfred can be set up on the tabletop but unfortunately the wifi signal is not too strong here.
Alfred gets better signals on the bedside. (By the way, look at the vintage phone.)
And on the dresser too.
To my surprise, I found the strongest wifi signal in the en-suite bathroom.
So, based on wifi strength, I set up my Alfred devices.
