White Lodging installed energy-management systems from Inncom by Honeywell. White Lodging is a hospitality development, ownership, and management company with more than 160 premium-branded, select, and full service hotels in 21 states. All White Lodging managed properties are branded hotels that include Marriott, Hilton, Hyatt, Starwood, and IHG flags.
"Ensuring a high level of guest comfort and satisfaction is always our first priority at White Lodging. The INNCOM thermostats help us meet this goal while we also realize excellent energy savings," said Thomas Riegelman, CFM, White Lodging vice president of engineering and facilities management. "Inncom's smart thermostat with occupancy detection has been a standard for most of our new builds since 2011 and we have retrofits under way."
Inncom delivers significant energy efficiencies and a greener footprint, according to Riegelman. "We start getting energy savings the minute we install the system. White Lodging reaps savings from several levels of Inncom's line of energy management solutions. These range from installations of standalone digital smart thermostats to fully networked, property-wide smart solutions that interface with property management and other third-party systems. White Lodging's Marriott Courtyard/Residence Inn Austin relies on Inncom's fully integrated network EMS to optimize energy conservation and savings. Inncom's state-of-the-art wireless Deep Mesh RF network technology provides high-speed communication to automatically monitor and control the thermostat in each guest room.
The Inncom network solution has lowered energy costs by $79,459 in just the first seven months of operation for a 37 percent savings at the Austin property. Inncom monitors guest comfort and safety from check-in to departure. Each guest experiences seamless environmental comfort from check-in to departure. Inncom's INNcontrol 3 near-real-time reporting server links energy management components with the property-management system and automated door locks to ensure guests are always comfortable.
