Energy Saving

Hoteliers around the globe have positioned energy saving as a
top priority of their environmental policies, as part of their
corporate social responsibility. By installing the room
management system in a property, the hotelier gains online
monitoring and control of the major utility consumers within the
guestroom, which statistically account for 70- 80% of the total
utilities consumption of a property. The R&D at SMART-G4 has
developed highly advanced energy saving logics, based on the
interaction of various guest presence sensors within the room,
along with the actual room status from the front office (PMS)
and the building management system. The logic includes
day/ night and seasonal settings, multiple temperature set
points based on the occupancy and short-/long-term vacancy
of rooms. This interaction allows a seamless automation of
procedures, minimizing staff interaction and optimizing energy
consumption based on real-time status of the room. The
hoteliers can now give their guests the opportunity to take part
in the green initiative by selecting the ECO comfort® setting on
the thermostat. ECO comfort® is a customizable setting that
uses a more environmentally friendly HVAC algorithm with
minimum impact on the felt temperature.
The smart-G4 Hotel RMS also logically detects real occupancy
even if second valid guest card (Wife card) is inserted in
keycard slot while room is vacant. and Automatically adjust to
save energy accordingly in special way and methodology that
help avoid any mistakes.

 

Guest – Hotelier Benefits

The Hotelier cares about guest satisfaction index, socially
responsible use of resources, return on investment, quality of
service and high levels of staff efficiency. The SMART-G4 room
management system helps to improve all of the above.
It starts with the flexibility of the system infrastructure, which
leverages on the existing structured network of the property,
avoiding a proprietary separate network infrastructure. The
TCP/IP network guarantees high scalability and real time
actions with third party interfaces. The online interaction with
the property management system allows an automated
management of the guestroom based on its actual occupancy
status, optimizing the energy consumption by eliminating
unnecessary utilization. The engineering department has the
ability to remotely diagnose and maintain guestroom controls
and the equipment connected to it, therefore anticipating
failures and minimizing the number of complaints from guests.
The user interfaces on our thermostats and guest service
panels utilizes human friendly designs with ease of usability.
Large internationally recognized icons completely avoid the
use of small descriptive text, so that the guests will immediately
familiarize with the intuitive features of the HVAC, lighting and
guest services. Guest security and privacy are greatly
enhanced by the communication of the electronic door locking,
the keycard holder and the room safe, with features such as
online deletion of lost (master) keys, online extension of
expired keys and many more.
The hotelier knows at any time if the guest is in the room, asked
not to be disturbed, or requested for cleaning. This allows the
hotelier to attend to guest requests much faster.

new glass switches offers the user from 1 to 12 control
buttons, where each of the buttons uses a large, internationally
recognized icon.
Clients can choose the icons from our wide portfolio of existing
icons or work with our designers to create their individual
