Lutron launches myRoom for guestroom management
The solution to save energy and enhance hotel guest experience
Lutron has launched myRoom for the Middle East hotel industry to facilitate lighting, shading and temperature control, while saving costs.
Hotelier attended the launch of the lighting supplier's new in-room technology at the Four Seasons resort.
The Pennsylvania, USA-based company was founded by the inventor of the template for the modern dimmer switch and has over 2,000 patents.
Lutron Middle East sales director Shadi Kharouf said: "Light and temperature control plays a vital role in the overall guest experience of a hotel room and lighting alone typically accounts for 25% of an organisation's electricity consumption (source: Carbon Trust).
“Control of the room environment by the guest - and by the hotel when the room is unoccupied - adds value and significantly reduces energy costs.
“Dubai is at the heart of the region's hospitality sector and a world class hospitality hub, with World Expo 2020 stimulating further strong growth. When guests stay in Dubai, they expect a very high quality experience and hotels need to deliver this experience elegantly, sustainably and cost effectively and myRoom helps to meet this need."
myRoom utilises guest presence detection to save energy by turning lights off when a room is unoccupied or initiating HVAC (heating, ventilation, air conditioning) setbacks when a room is unsold. Moreover, it allows guests to adjust the environment with a touch of a button, allowing tactile and audible feedback, automatic programming, control and comfort.
The solution can be integrated with existing property management and building management systems, lighting control and window systems solutions.
Lutron works with many hotel groups in the hospitality markets around the world, and provides lighting control and window systems solutions to a number of properties in the region, including the Rosewood Abu Dhabi; The Ritz-Carlton Abu Dhabi; Four Seasons Resort Dubai; The Palace Downtown Dubai; Four Seasons Hotel Doha ; and The Regent Doha.
