Angie Hospitality’s interactive guest room assistant meets the health, safety, and environmental protection standards established by internationally-recognized product testing and regulatory bodies, including the FCC (Federal Communications Commission), IC (Industry Canada), CE (Conformité Européene), and UL (Underwriter’s Laboratories), along with many others. Angie has been rigorously tested to ensure that its radio and electrical emissions do not interfere with other devices within the same environment in accordance with the stringent FCC Class B standard. This certification ensures that the device’s Zigbee, Wi-Fi and BLE capabilities all meet the more demanding FCC standard. While not compulsory, Angie’s AC adaptor is UL-listed and meets the safety standards required in most workplace settings.
