The CentraLine BMS system can be set up to interface directly with market leading room reservation systems. e.g. via the Fidelio protocol. Thereby the CentraLine system is able to find out in advance when hotel rooms are booked (reserved), when customers check in or when rooms are unrented. Factoring in this information in the overall control strategy in a smart way optimizes customer comfort, while reducing energy consumption:
Status: Room is unrent
Action: Allow significant deviation of room temperature from setpoint, without switching on air condition ("Off"-Condition). Additionally, shutters and blinds can be managed to prevent overheating though solar radiation (summer) or cooling down by transmission losses (winter).
Status: Room is rent, but guest has not yet checked in.
Action: Bring room into “standby” condition, with contained and controlled deviation of room temperature from comfort setpoint.
Status: Guest checks in
Action: Bring room to comfort conditions. Do this even before guest enters the room. Shutters and blinds will typically open in that state.
Status: “Rented” period
Action:Control room conditions according to the guest presence:
When room is empty, fall back to “standby” condition to save energy. Shutters and blinds can be managed to optimize energy gains and losses.
When room is occupied, switch to comfort conditions. Shutters and blinds will be exclusively managed by the guest (no automatic intervention)
Status: Guest checks out
Action: Allow significant deviation of room temperature from setpoint, without switching on air condition (“Off”-Condition). Shutters and blinds can be managed to optimize energy gains and losses.
