Greater energy efficiency for your hotel

Lights that stay on all day long. Air conditioning cooling a room when the window is open. Wasted energy in heating rooms when another warmer room is empty. All of these are examples of how energy can be wasted increasing the costs. These things can be solved with Domotel, a system which manage the hotel resources more efficiently.

First you must know that 60% of energy consumption is due to hotel rooms. However, in high season, it can reach 80%. The bills will be reduced if we create “smart bedrooms”. These rooms have systems to optimizing the energy, managing efficiently the amount of heat, cold or light. Thus Domotel can give comfort to the client adapting to hotel circumstances and occupancy rate.

Let's see some examples of how Domotel can provide solutions. On the one hand, Domotel does not allow activating the air conditioning or any other service with any other card different than those dispensed by the system. As a result, the system avoids the customer to leave lights or heating on. Furthermore, this management software can put the air conditioning in stand by mode when the user leaves the room. It can also be disconnected when the guest opens a window. Similarly, the system save energy disabling electrical devices such as televisions, whirlpools or saunas.

There are different ways to use Domotel with energy saving criteria. For example, the software will help you to place the host in the room that would be easier to heat. Another option should be the lighting and temperature control of the common areas.

These are just some examples of how Domotel increases energy efficiency. If you have any questions or want to explore new possibilities, please contact us.
