Energy management solution Orion by VingCard reduces hotel’s energy costs

Comfort Suites in Gothenburg Nebraska reduced their energy costs while ensuring the best possible guest experienc with electronic door locks and online management systems from VingCard Elsafe.

VingCard Elsafe recently completed the installation of Orion by VingCard Elsafe at the 74-room Comfort Suites property located in Gothenburg, Nebraska. To complement Orion, the hotel also chose Visionline, VingCard Elsafe’s wireless RF-online system and Signature RFID, its contactless electronic door lock with NFC cell phone compatibility.

“Gothenburg attracts visitors from all across the US for a mix of business and pleasure,” said Diana Unterseher, general manager of the hotel. “To offer our guests the most convenience and best experience, we chose a combination of security and energy products that work together to provide the ultimate experience.”

As the latest innovation by VingCard Elsafe, Orion’s intelligent thermostat detects whether a guest is in the room to automatically control room temperature and to seamlessly integrate energy management solutions as it adjusts temperature settings. Additionally, the system provides hoteliers with preventative maintenance schedules and occupancy trends and reports, providing real-time feedback for staff on the entire property.

 “Energy is one of the biggest costs for hoteliers each year, and we were searching for a way to save on energy costs without taking away from the guest experience,” said Unterseher. “By installing this intelligent energy management solution, we are able to do that. And because the system was designed to offer maximum functionality with Visionline, we now have the added convenience of full security integration.”

Introduced in 2006, Visionline is a cost-effective solution that facilitates reliable wireless two-way communication from standalone electronic door locks to their host security and PMS systems. To complement this system, the hotel also chose Signature RFID contactless electronic door locks with RFID technology, which allow for contactless guest room entry and are compatible with next-generation NFC cell phones.
