Interel's Energy Management Meets Water Management At The 2016 HTNG Techovation Awards
INTEREL has nominated its TCP/IP-based Water Management System, a world’s first for the hospitality industry, for the HTNG 2016 TechOvation Awards
On average, an overnight guest staying in a luxury hotel consumes 300-1,400 litres of water depending on usage profile and geographic area. Through INTEREL's new online guest room water management solution, a hotel will be able to save substantial amounts of water and therefore decrease overheads every year while enhancing the guest's comfort and experience.
INTEREL's TCP/IP-based water management system deeply impacts hotels' sustainability programs with the opportunity to significantly enhance a property's profitability." He added.
INTEREL's new TCP/IP-based Water Management System allows guests to have instant control over the water flow and temperature in their room. This means they can select personal water preferences with the simple touch of a button, instead of struggling with adjusting unknown basin and shower faucets till they find their preferred temperature. Through the integration with the INTEREL online Guest Room Management System, different maximum water temperatures can be predefined based on guest or housekeeping presence in the room. The controls also allow guests to select their preferred settings, and the 'Eco' mode automatically selects the most water and energy-efficient settings, allowing guests to contribute to the hotel's sustainability program even further.
Hotels benefit from significant water and energy savings, access to online real time water consumption data, as well as fewer leaks and a longer life for the property's plumbing infrastructure, as pipes within the room are no longer required to be under pressure. Along with these advantages comes a saving on the cost of the plumbing infrastructure of each room, during the construction period of the hotel.
"As an active vendor member of HTNG, INTEREL has repeatedly experienced the industry impact and value delivered by our consistent involvement in the HTNG global events. Our continued participation in the HTNG TechOvation Awards has been a tremendous global momentum builder for our firm and a strong validation for our connectBsmart™ "beacons as infrastructure" enabled Guest Room, Energy and now Water Management solutions." Gallini concluded.
