Evolve Hotel Guest Energy Control System Saves 30-50%

Hotels face unique sensor and control challenges with constantly rotating occupants. A key card based energy efficiency program can save 30% in energy costs, and provide easy to use convenience for guests.

Evolve Guest Controls

Evolve’s key card based system controls all of the devices in a guest room, including the HVAC, lighting and television. By inserting their key card a guest activates all of the devices in a room, when the key is removed all of the devices are deactivated.

Hoteliers can expect a 30%-50% savings on their energy costs with an ROI of less than 2 years.

According to an Evolve system case study of the Richmond Hotel in Miami, FL, The Richmond chose this energy saving system because of the utility savings and ease of installation in their hotel that was built in 1941. The Evolve system was able to be installed in the Richmond with no new wires run to any of the devices, the system had no impact on the décor of the hotel or the rooms. The complete installation had little impact on the daily rental of the rooms. The Richmond will see a return on their investment in less than 2 years, due to the low cost of installation and the high savings in energy costs.

The Energy Star Partner system is key card based, and unlike sensor based systems, cannot be fooled to create false-positives. With Evolve the guest inserts his room key in a reader when he enters the room to activate the lighting, TV and air conditioning. When the guest leaves the room, their key goes with them and this turns off all of the lights and the TV and sets back the air conditioning.

Evolve Guest Controls, an affiliated company of the Mason Family of companies, was created to bring energy efficiency to the Hospitality Industry.
