WiSuite Delivers Big Three Benefits to Downtown Detroit Hotel

Detroit – WiSuite, a leading provider of connected guest room energy management systems for the hospitality industry, has completed implementation of its WiSuite Intelligent Network (WIN) at a downtown Detroit property of a Top Five hotelier. Managers confirm that their 265-room property now benefits from reduced heating and cooling costs, improved guest service and will have a smaller carbon footprint.

In cities like Detroit, where temperature extremes are common, energy requirements to heat and cool hotel guest rooms can be volatile. WIN helps managers at the Courtyard by Marriott Detroit Downtown capture energy cost savings by monitoring occupancy in real time and controlling thermostat settings based on their status. With annual energy costs in excess of $2,000 per guest room for U.S. hotels, WiSuite’s systems rapidly reduce a property’s operating costs and deliver returns on investment in fewer than three years, on average.

“WiSuite has worked with several Marriott properties, allowing us to witness firsthand the commitment to conservation and community sustainability that’s become so highly associated with their brand,” noted John Gallant, CEO of WiSuite USA. “As of 2012, less than 20 percent of hotels had invested in a connected system like WiSuite’s, so Marriott is clearly an industry leader in this regard and they benefit from improved loyalty from increasingly environmentally conscious customers.”

Unlike other systems that offer limited integration, antiquated hardware and slower returns on investment, WiSuite’s fully connected system can deliver additional guest satisfaction and property management benefits. WiSuite’s WiStat-SS “smart screen” thermostats can recognize malfunctioning HVAC units in occupied guest rooms and notify hotel staff of the issue before it causes guest inconvenience via an alert system. Reporting capabilities within WiSuite’s software can also identify the least energy efficient units within the hotel, enabling hotel engineers to schedule maintenance or replacement.

WiSuite Reigns in Seasonal Energy Consumption Resort and Spa Property of Top 3 Hotelier

Detroit, MI – WiSuite, a leading provider of connected guest room energy management systems for the hospitality industry, has completed implementation of its WiSuite Intelligent Network (WIN) at a Top 3 hotelier’s premier resort property near Albuquerque. By providing the power to monitor guest-room occupancy in real time and control thermostat settings based on their status, WiSuite’s systems enable hotel and lodging industry professionals to reduce heating and cooling costs, manage hotel assets, improve guest service and lower property carbon footprints.

“Our client is committed to conservation efforts as part of an aggressive set of environmental goals they’re working to reach by the year 2020,” noted John Gallant, CEO of WiSuite USA. “WiSuite’s system installation is part of an overall environmental sustainability strategy that includes a strong commitment to reduce energy usage through sustainable solutions that can be replicated across all of their properties.”

At destination properties, where tourism is responsible for a large percentage of annual guest bookings, seasonal energy consumption requirements can vary significantly. At resort properties, many guests may spend much of their day outside of their rooms, making energy for heating and cooling an unnecessary expense to the property. During off-peak seasons, unrented rooms create a similar challenge. Property engineers at the Albuquerque area resort selected WiSuite’s system for its power to monitor occupancy
in real time and control room thermostats through a centralized and connected system. When installed as
a fully connected system, WIN’s ability to manage guest room heating and cooling requirements can produce energy savings of as much as 43 percent annually, resulting in returns on investment in fewer than three years, on average.

“As a fully connected system, WIN can deliver additional guest satisfaction and property management benefits that first-generation standalone systems cannot produce, such as property asset intelligence,” added John Gallant, CEO of WiSuite USA.
“Our WiStat-SS “Smart Screen” thermostats relay data to our central control software to produce reports that identify inefficient or malfunctioning HVAC units, helping hotel staff to plan for maintenance or replacement.”

WiSuite Helps Hyatt Drill for Sustainable Guest Satisfaction in San Antonio

San Antonio, TX – WiSuite, a leading provider of guest room energy management systems for the hospitality industry, announced the Hyatt Regency San Antonio Riverwalk implemented its WiSuite Intelligent Network (WIN) and WiStat-SS Smart Screen thermostats, following a review of available solutions. WiSuite’s technology helps hoteliers capture energy cost savings by monitoring guest room occupancy in real time and provides the Hyatt property improved profitability, environmental sustainability and guest comfort.

“Hyatt is an industry leader for comprehensive global energy and water data tracking across its properties,” noted Jimmy Yarbrough, Hyatt Area Director of Engineering. “WiSuite’s technology gives us the power to accommodate guest preferences and reduce our energy usage, contributing to both guest satisfaction and our Hyatt 2020 Vision of responsible environmental stewardship.”

WIN allows hotel management to monitor conditions in guest rooms in real time and make changes remotely, empowering them to proactively anticipate guest requests and minimize disruption to hotel operations. WiSuite interfaces with the hotel’s property management system, enabling the hotel to decrease energy consumption associated with heating and cooling in vacant or unoccupied rooms.

“Hyatt manages how its hotels use energy to serve their guests in a clear and thoughtful manner,” noted John Gallant, CEO of WiSuite USA. “Hotels in a climate like San Antonio’s have tremendous potential to save on cooling costs and make meaningful reductions to their carbon footprint and other sustainability measures – this investment demonstrates clear alignment between the Hyatt 2020 Vision and its day-to-day operations.”

WiSuite’s state-of-the-art thermostat also influenced Hyatt’s decision to select WiSuite. WiStat-SS Smart Screen thermostats combine sleek styling and a touchscreen interface that can display hotel logos and useful information for guests, such as outside weather conditions.

“WiSuite has consistently delivered throughout this project,” added Yarbrough. “The new design of the thermostat combined
with the software capabilities made it an easy choice to alternatives we reviewed and they completed the installation on
time and within budget.”
