Elegant Guest Facing Technologies

Multi-Dwelling Units
Optimizing energy efficiency in multi-dwelling facilities can be more complex than achieving this goal in any other building type. Much of the difference lies in the variables of the resident as owner, or on a lease agreement. Temperature and lighting use patterns and the desire to regulate appropriately can vary greatly.  Also, an adequate level of financing for upgrades usually does not support this undertaking.

Despite these issues, the benefits of reduced energy consumption have emerged as a priority to management teams. SmartCon Solutions will work closely with property managers to develop and implement a plan that will save on energy revenue, and increase the facility’s value. We are experienced in the installation of multi-dwelling energy management technologies that combine efficiency, building longevity and improved tenant safety.

Energy Management
​​​Title 24
The state of California has instituted occupancy based room control standards that require Multi-Dwelling Units (MDU) industry compliance in an effort to achieve energy efficiency. The adopted codes emphasize lighting standards, without compromising the quality of lighting and preserving environmental quality. SmartCon Solutions, in conjunction with their industry alliances, provides the solution that best fits your facility through energy saving lighting and HVAC technologies.

Load Control
An Energy Management system’s capability to remotely control power consumption in high capacity buildings has proven to be an effective operating application, which does not affect the customer’s day to day business needs.  The simple shift of reducing energy consumption to periods of lower demand can dramatically influence energy cost savings. In addition, an enhanced guest experience can be achieved through controlling room lighting ambiance.

Big Data
The SmartCon Solutions team has the experience in analyzing the information that generates from your Energy Management System. This data can provide insights into your facility’s energy consumption trends and expose patterns that can determine causes of energy waste and other system issues. Through the use of analytics that can anticipate a facility’s energy functionality, companies can improve decision making and implement an accurate strategic plan.

  
The Savings Potential in Multifamily Buildings
Multifamily buildings present a tremendous opportunity for energy savings. Comprehensive, cost-effective upgrades in multifamily buildings can improve efficiency by 15-30%, representing an annual sector-wide savings of almost
​$3.4 billion.

Demand Response
A SmartCon installed and commissioned automated demand response program provides the latest in technology for optimizing energy usage during the stages of demand response, ensuring facility responsiveness. This technology can ensure a reliable and swift functionality.  An energy rationing approach, especially during peak periods, allows facilities to respond automatically, temporarily controlling energy usage. Targeted energy consumption during demand reduction events assists in meeting incentive payments and cost reductions.
  
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 unit 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

SmartCom Living solutions provide energy savings without sacrificing elegance and  comfort.

Lights, shades, and temperature can automatically adjust in response to time of day, special events, or by using occupancy Intuitive controls.
