Occupancy Based Room Controls; A smart management of temperature and light
Your energy management agenda starts at the door. Here’s how saving energy through occupancy detection could work for your facility:
The door contact switch signals the room’s thermostat, which acts as the “information center” that the room has become occupied, immediately adjusting temperature, welcome lighting and drapes adjustment. A Passive Infrared Sensor (PIR) continues to detect occupancy, assuring that the desired temperature is maintained. Conversely, shortly after detection of room vacancy, the door switch will return the room to an increased energy saving level, with the temperature effectively stabilizing at a predetermined, unoccupied state.
The SmartCon team will work closely with you to structure and implement an energy management system that works best for your facility. Expertly installed and commissioned room energy controls can provide revenue savings of up to 30 percent per room, per year.
Lighting & Room Automation
Smart Lighting That's Brilliant
Sophistication meets Automation
Smart lighting will subtly, but effectively, influence the ambiance of a room, complementing the aesthetics of its décor, while also providing convenience and energy efficiency. Your tenants can brighten or dim any light in the room—with a single touch. Or automate lighting to respond to their lifestyles without any touch at all. With configurable, custom engraved buttons, everyone will know what each button does. Built-in sensors change the button brightness depending on the lighting of the room, so they’re always perfectly lit. It’s not just smart, it’s brilliant.
