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.”
