New hotel system puts users in control

09 December 2013

Legrand has launched a new guest room management system that it claims provides ease of use, customisation and control for guests, reception staff or the hotel head office

Compatible with Fidelio, Suite and Opera hotel reservation systems, the new guest room management system from Legrand optimises comfort, energy efficiency and aesthetics providing intuitive, ease of use for guests and control of individual rooms, floors or the whole building for the hotel.

Pre-programmed with an entry scenario (access control, temperature set and courtesy light) and exit scenario (temperature set, lights off), the room settings can be altered to suit the guest’s requirements when they make their reservation, when they check in or when they arrive at their room.  Guests can select from a number of pre-set scenarios to suit their requirements, including comfort (do not disturb, temperature set, dimmer), sleeping (do not disturb, lights off) and eco scenarios (open window, eco temperature), creating a bespoke environment incorporating all room functions to meet their preferences. These settings can then be monitored and controlled by the hotel’s reception, enabling lights to be switched off or heating to be turned down while the room is vacant and can be linked to the hotel’s building management and HVAC system via KNX or BACnet. Preferences can also be logged by the reservation system to prompt custom settings when the guest makes a future reservation.

Designed to offer complete co-ordination with Legrand’s Arteor and Synergy ranges of wiring accessories, the discreet and simple to operate guest room management system enables centralised control of the room with an eight button unit that can be customised with the hotel’s choice of symbols and branding. The unit can be used in combination with manual switching in the room or remote access by hotel staff.

Comments Richard Hayward, marketing manager for Legrand’s wiring devices business: “Hotel guests are used to having a personal greeting on their TV screen when they enter their room but our new guest room management system takes the tailored hotel room to a new level, without being too complex for guests to enjoy it.  Meanwhile the hotel is able to enhance the experience for guests by personalising their room to their requirements while benefitting from a tool that allows them to monitor use of different functions and retain complete control over rooms and both occupancy and vacancy settings.”
