Hotels get smarter with Signify’s New Lighting IoT System for Hotel Room Mgt.
Aug. 2, 2018 –
Singapore, Singapore – The smart hotel of the future got a step closer
today with the launch of Interact Hospitality from Signify (Euronext:
LIGHT), the world leader in lighting. The hotel room management system
enables guests to alter lighting, temperature and make room service
requests at the touch of a button. This smart system also lets hotel
staff know if a room is occupied and helps them to respond quicker to
guest requests, providing useful information to improve the guest
experience, optimize operations and save energy. The first commercial
implementation of this smart system takes place at the 1,261-room
Swiss˘tel The Stamford in Singapore.
Smarter hotel management
Imagine a hotel room where hotel staff will never disturb you unnecessarily. A room where you don’t fiddle with a key card to switch things on - the lights come on automatically when you enter, and lights, HVAC and other systems shut down to conserve energy when you leave. A room so smart, that it remembers your preferences and knows if you’re in or not. This has all been made possible by Interact Hospitality, a software system designed with the Internet of Things (IoT) in mind.
Interact Hospitality also benefits hotel managers. By integrating lighting, sensors, HVAC and Property Management Systems, Interact Hospitality allows managers to monitor their entire property via a single dashboard.
The system’s open Application Program Interface (API) enables its connection to a variety of hotel systems, so that real-time information can be fed into everything from housekeeping to engineering systems, helping to make hotel operations more efficient.
One of the key operational benefits of Interact Hospitality is energy savings. In hot climates especially, HVAC can consume more than half of a hotel’s energy use. By using data from occupancy sensors located in guest rooms and information from Property Management systems, Interact Hospitality can automatically turn down systems – including HVAC and lighting – when rooms are unoccupied. This allows managers to reduce electricity bills while ensuring rooms match guest preferences.
The intuitive room management system also displays information on room status so that staff do not reach out to guests unnecessarily. If a room is set to ‘Do Not Disturb,’ the laundry delivery is automatically paused to respect guest wishes and save staff unnecessary trips and time. This also helps to increase staff satisfaction through more seamless processes.
AccorHotels’ iconic Swiss˘tel The Stamford, is the first hotel to showcase Interact Hospitality (see video). The hotel, which is one of the tallest in South-East Asia, will have the system fully installed in each of its 1,261 guest rooms by the time the hotel completes its renovation at the end of 2018. Signify with its Interact Hospitality and Swiss˘tel The Stamford share an aligned vision to be leaders in technology within hospitality.
