April is a big month for the hospitality industry. With the Easter break falling at the start of the month two of the UK’s major airports, Heathrow and Gatwick, are expecting a combined total of 4.9 million holiday-goers before Sunday 15th April. At peak times such as these it is imperative that hotels provide the ultimate guest experience. Intelligent building technologies can help make sure guests get the most out of their time away.
As hotel owners you want your guests to start enjoying themselves from the moment they arrive. Through using KNX technologies you can ensure everything runs smoothly from checking-in to checking-out. Room management and smart card systems provide accurate information about each room. Smart cards, used by guests and staff, show when a room is occupied, when it is being serviced, and when it is ready for the next guest. Your guests are not kept waiting as data from the network provides to-the-second room status.
When on holiday comfort is key. There is nothing worse than getting to a hotel room to find it is too hot, too cold, too bright, or too dark. This is where DALI lighting systems and KNX climate controls can really make a difference to your guests’ stay. The room management system allows guests to choose their preferred temperature and lighting settings. These settings then adapt to the environment throughout their time with you to optimize their comfort.
Finally, we all want to feel safe away from home. Integrated security systems give you and your guests complete peace of mind through intelligent intruder detection and panic and emergency alert systems. With the KNX building management systems you are given real time information about the occupancy of a room or space within the hotel. Any unauthorised access is immediately reported and dealt with. These building management systems are also vital in emergency situations such as fires, structural damage or medical difficulties. They enable staff to locate and react to the problem safely and speedily.
