As part of a recent refurbishment, the 1926 Hotel and Spa wanted to implement the latest technologies to reduce its carbon footprint and improve its operations. The hotel sought a Room Energy Management System to reduce unnecessary energy consumption within each guest room. Furthermore, they wanted a seamless Check-In process for their guests which eliminated the need for plastic cards.
Room Energy Management System
AIS Technology delivered a Room Energy Management System (REMS) across the hotel’s 170 rooms. The REMS uses sensors to determine the room’s occupancy and switch off the lighting and air-conditioning systems automatically. Sensors were installed across the doors and balcony windows, which automatically switched off the Air-Conditioning when opened. The REMS delivered a reduction in energy consumption and costs, as well as minimising the hotel’s carbon footprint.
AIS Technology also implemented a PIN-based Access Control system for a seamless guest experience. The Access Control system integrated directly with the hotel’s Property Management System to provide guest access to the hotel, without needing any intervention from the hotel’s staff.
Guests are notified of their check-in details via email and SMS before they arrive at the hotel. The access control system was also extended to other areas of the building. The software allows the hotel’s staff to set access rights, schedules, and permissions quickly and effectively.
An electronic Do Not Disturb/Make-Up Room (DND/MUR) system was installed to replace the traditional paper-based setup. The technology allows hotel operations to know guest preferences in real-time, improving their efficiency and minimising guest disruption.
Today, 1926 Hotel &Spa benefits from:
- Lower energy consumption cost as a result of the latest Room Energy Management System technology.
- The innovative Access Control system led to seamless guest check-in, giving the hotel a modern and technological feel.
- The use of Access Control and DND/MUR technology improved the hotel’s operations and efficiency.
