Running a hotel can be a hectic, challenging business, but there are certain things you can do to make things a little easier on your staff and improve the experience for your guests. One step you can take is adding commercial automation systems to your hotel. Automation can free up your staff from routine tasks, giving them more time to concentrate on customer service, while offering new and exciting services to your customers. Here are a few ways you can turn your Maui, HI property into a smart hotel.
Automated lighting control can not only save you time and money, it can also make your hotel a much more pleasant place to stay.
Let’s start with the benefits for you and your staff. A commercial lighting control system can automatically turn off the lights in rooms that aren’t being used by your guests or staff, thereby lowering your energy costs. Another way you can increase efficiency is to have your lights automatically adjust to different light conditions throughout the day, which lets you make the most of the available natural light and lowering your energy usage even further. These systems also make adjusting lights much simpler by bringing control of all your fixtures under one device, such as a touchpad or wall panel.
Lighting control can also help your guests have a better stay. Integrating lighting control into your rooms gives them more control over the ambiance in their space. These systems also let them wake up more easily in the morning by gradually increasing the intensity and color temperature as their wake-up time approaches. The reverse is also true when they’re ready to drift off to sleep.
If your hotel caters to business clients, then you absolutely want to invest in integrated room control.
Put simply, integrated room control is the process of synthesizing control of different systems within a room with one easy-to-use device. You can integrate lights, room temperature, shades, videoconference systems and more using one device. You can even create a system to let guests check the availability of conference rooms and then reserve them on their own.
This makes it much easier for business clients to do presentations and hold meetings in your hotel. It also makes it much easier for your staff to do their job, as they can manage all these systems from one device instead of having to make multiple adjustments with separate systems.
There are additional efficiency opportunities available through automation. By centralizing control of your HVAC system, doors, lights, AV systems and more, you can automatically make sure no resources are being wasted in unoccupied rooms.
This also gives you a central interface to monitor these systems and see if there are any problems. Integrating remote monitoring and network control allows you to quickly any issues before they spiral out of control.
These are just a few ways that automation can turn your Maui, HI property into a smart hotel. For more information on how Control Freaks Hawaii can incorporate automation into your hotel, call us at (808) 874-8019 or visit us online.
