Hotel Room Energy-Saving Kit

Until now, the most commonly used method to control the electrical supply to lights, socket outlets and A/C in a hotel room has been via a keycard or fob activation switch. The occupant of the room activates the power by inserting their keycard or fob into a holder, and power remains on until the card is removed. The problem with this system is that a spare card can be left inserted in the switch while the room is empty. This wastes valuable energy and undoubtedly costs a hotel huge amounts of money when taking into account how many rooms may be affected over the course of a year.

No more key cards

This problem is now a thing of the past. Our simple, intelligent control system replaces inefficient card systems, and prevents needless energy wastage. The system is suitable for use in new build applications and retrofit projects. The kit uses occupancy sensing to turn power on when someone enters their hotel room, and automatically turn it off when the occupant leaves.

It has been developed to ensure quick and easy installation by a qualified electrician. Products are modular, and plug together, resulting in a fast, trouble-free install. Furthermore, flex7 lighting controls operate at Protected Extra Low Voltage (PELV) making it a safe option to use in spaces accessed by the general public. Sensor heads are small and unobtrusive ensuring they blend seamlessly with the room’s décor, and the flashing LED is only active during commissioning.

The control kits are designed to operate in a single bedroom with adjoining bathroom, but can easily be expanded to operate in a multi-room suite of almost any size.

How does it work?

When the bedroom door is opened a magnetic door contact opens and the controller initiates the power supply. Power will remain on as long as the door is open. When the door closes the following steps are automatically carried out by the system:

  • The power supply is held on.
  • For the next 10 seconds (adjustable) the system monitors the space for occupancy via sensor heads installed in the bedroom and en-suite, while continuing to maintain the supply.
  • If a person is detected in the room, then power will remain on until the door is opened again.
  • If no occupancy is detected within the 10 second time frame power to the room will switch off.

The process above is repeated every time the door is opened and closed, ensuring power remains on if the room is occupied, but is immediately turned off once the room is empty.

As a safeguard, if the power is off in a bedroom, but occupancy is detected, regardless of the state of the door switch, the output will switch on and remain on until the door is opened again.
