Solution #1

  • Control Relays

The wireless keycard switch is powered by EnOcean’s® “energy harvesting” technology that converts the slide of a plastic keycard into a small amount of electricity. This electricity is used to transmit a wireless signal that communicates to Functional Devices’ EnOcean® enabled wireless relay that is controlling the power to the HVAC unit in the room.

When the access card is placed in the Key Card Access Switch, the room is enabled, thus activating the room’s HVAC unit. When the occupant leaves the room and the access card is removed, the room will deactivate and the HVAC unit will turn off or go into set-back immediately, preventing the room’s temperature from moving outside a preferred range.

Using Functional Devices’ energy saving system in retrofit applications can provide a relatively quick and easy energy savings solution for hotel owners and managers who wish to quickly establish control over rising energy costs.

Solution #2

  • Solar Door / Window Switch
  • Control Relays

If a hotel room has a patio door, even more energy savings can be realized with the Wireless Magnetic Door / Window Switch. When the patio door is opened beyond the contacts of the door switch, a signal is transmitted and the wireless relay will deactivate, disabling the HVAC unit. The HVAC unit will be disabled as long as the door is left open disregarding any signal from a thermostat calling for the room to be cooled or heated. When the patio door is closed the power will be activated and a thermostat will regain control of the HVAC unit.

Solution #3

Combining system components can facilitate more complex solutions which may involve lighting control in combination with HVAC control. Please consult our sales staff for customized kits.

Self-Powered

Energy Harvesting - Functional Devices' EnOcean® enabled solutions make use of energy created from slight changes in motion, pressure, light, temperature or vibration. The self-powered wireless devices help make buildings smarter, safer, more comfortable and more energy-efficient. No batteries - building professionals and end-users can now realize the promise of battery-less and wire-free control systems. Because they are anchored by self-powered transmitter switches, buildings are more flexible and cost-efficient to design, build and operate.
