Wireless controls reduce hotel room energy use by 33%

November 01, 2009 |

A recent independent study conducted at a Wyndham Hotel in Boston showed that hotel rooms controlled by the Verde wireless/batteryless energy control system consumed 33% less energy than rooms without the energy harvesting controls. The Verde hotel room energy system determines if a hotel room is vacant or occupied according to the status of the system's keycard access switch. When a guest enters the room and inserts the key card into its dock, a radio signal is sent to alert the system that the room is occupied. When the guest leaves the room, the removed key card automatically shuts off controlled lights and other electronics and sets the in-room HVAC system back to its unoccupied/energy-conservation mode.
