Salto Systems' universal energy-saving device system allows hotels to optimize energy consumption by turning off lighting and adjusting climate-control systems when guests are not in the room for long periods of time.

On average, 90 percent of wasted electricity usage comes from the guestroom, according to Salto, which can be your property's most unmanaged resource (a guestroom air conditioning/heating system can represent 70 to 90 percent of that wasted electricity). 

The hotel HVAC and lighting systems receive room status (occupied/unoccupied) from the sensors and, as a result, activate or deactivate the room's lights, air conditioning or heater while maintaining a comfortable temperature (which is configured and preset by management).

The maximum level of efficiency is reached if there also is a door or window sensor to differentiate between the use of air conditioning and lighting, depending on whether the windows are open or closed.

The system components and Salto's universal ESD ecosystem uses infrared detectors and advanced wireless technology. Installation and set-up is very simple and reliable and can be accomplished in approximately 20 minutes, ensuring your guestrooms remain available for sale.

Reduction in electricity use can be easily evaluated and will vary by hotel depending on the facility size, climate, geographical location and other factors.
