Interfaces to PMS software
The interface to your hotel PMS system makes better.energy unique. The intelligent solution is specially designed for use in hotels and adapted to the special features of hotels. The connection to your hotel software ensures that the room control knows your hotel’s occupancy. The Smart Home System always knows, which of your hotel rooms are occupied and which are vacant.
Advantages of the PMS interface:
- Occupancy-dependent control of the heating in the hotel
- No waste of energy in vacant rooms
- More energy efficiency in occupied rooms
- Intelligent pre-heating for arrivals
- Automatic temperature adjustments for departures
- No manual control of the thermostats needed
- Precautionary pre-heating
The intelligent energy management solution only heats occupied rooms. Of course, other hotel rooms will not cool down in winter either. Simply enter a moderate temperature in the system for your vacant rooms, for example 17 °C. Turning off the heating completely would also be rather disadvantageous from an energy point of view. You will consume much more energy to then reheat the hotel room. Efficiently lowering the temperature in the hotel room when it is not occupied saves energy and money.
If your booking system indicates the actual arrival of your guests, the room will already be preheated at the specified check-in time. By default, this is +2°C. As soon as the check-in is actually completed and your PMS system reports that the hotel room is now occupied, the temperature increases to your predefined values. Thanks to the additional boost function, your radiators heat up the room in the shortest possible time.
Integration in hotels
Incredibly easy and completely automatic
The smart energy management solution better.energy is integrated into your hotel infrastructure without any structural measures. You only need to replace your old thermostats on the radiators with new wireless thermostats. The thermostats and the software automatically connect to each other via a gateway after switching on. This creates a stable and reliable connection between the intelligent room control and the wireless thermostats.
Of course, the thermostats and gateway are pre-configured and delivered turnkey. With the help of the web access, monitoring your radiators is possible from anywhere.
- No structural measures
- Stable and reliable connection
- Software and thermostats connect automatically
- Easy control via web access
A permanent connection will be created, which ensures secure data transmission to our smart home system and your PMS system. However, thanks to the use of state-of-the-art wireless technology, the WLAN load on your hotel’s network is minimal. Figuratively speaking, the intelligent room control system will not burden your WLAN more than a simple WhatsApp message.
State-of-the-art wireless technology
Greater range with less bandwidth
The intelligent energy management solution better.energy is based on the LoRaWAN wireless standard. LoRaWAN wireless technology offers numerous advantages over other wireless technologies. Benefit from increased security thanks to encrypted data transmission, long battery life, low susceptibility to interference, extremely long ranges and very good signal penetration within your hotel. In addition, you save a lot of cables and wiring effort during installation in the building. By operating in the ISM band, in the frequency range from 867 to 869 MHZ, the intelligent room control can be used without incurring license fees, completely independent of your hotel‘s WiFi and guest Internet. In addition, with the support of LTE, there are options to operate the intelligent room control better.energy completely independent of your hotel internet.
“The radio technology is simply forward-looking and also environmentally friendly. It has enabled us to save a great deal of copper and plastic cables. And we’re not just talking about a few meters here, but kilometers of cables and wiring that were saved by the intelligent system.”
– Jens Philipsenburg, Managing Director DQuadrat Living, Das Schlafwerk Stuttgart
Always have everything in view via web access
With the intelligent energy management solution better.energy, you always have an overview of your hotel’s energy consumption via web access. You can see which rooms are currently being heated, whether a window is open, what the heating profiles of the hotel rooms or public areas look like, and much more. Of course, you can also quickly and easily adjust pre-set temperatures via the backend and readjust the intelligent algorithms if necessary.
The smart room control system handles everything automatically
The smart hotel system not only lowers your operating costs but also reduces the effort for you and your staff.
