The idea of using remote-controlled devices to patrol the movements of people at night is nothing new. Drones for security inspection have been in production for decades and is beginning to make its way into general use at small budget hotels thanks to technology.

"We're not trying to collect good and bad data; we're trying to collect valuable data," he said.

The selection of a robot is based on "the skill and the intelligence of the workforce, how quickly it can correct the problems. Then as [employee] turn into associate, multiple steps before turning towards supervisor and finally till the line has returned back to either line calls or new task."
