We have prepared a few different ranges of hotel automation solutions that are included in the most common standards in the industry. The table below shows solutions for basic, advanced, and most demanding apartment complexes.
AUTOMATICS OPERATION SCENARIOS
Below are the most common scenarios of operation of apartment automation.
Entering the room:
- Hold the card near the Card Reader (on the Electronic Door Lock).
- The Card Reader opens the door.
- Pleasant welcome lighting switches on immediately after the door opens.
- Put the card in the Energy Saving Switch that sends data to the Controller.
- The Controller activates the in-room power supply, sets the air conditioning into Comfort mode, allows switching on the lights and controlling the window blinds.
Exiting the room:
When the card is withdrawn from the Energy Saving Switch for more than 1 minute, the Controller turns off the power supply, sets the air conditioning to Economy mode, turns off the lights and disables the blinds’ controls.
- Window and/or door contact sensor detects opening of windows/doors and sends the status to the Controller.
- If the window is opened, the Thermostat turns off the fan coil.
Alarms are defined according to the wishes of the apartment administrator. The Controller triggers an alarm if:

- Air conditioning does not work (for example, due to an error, no power supply, etc.);
- Doors to the room are opened for too long;
- SOS alarm is triggered in the bathroom;
- There is a flood in the bathroom;
- Temperature difference between the desired and actual room temperature is too high.
