The SALTO in room energy saving device (ESD) available from Electro-Com helps to save up to 65% of a hotels rooms electricity consumption and unlike standard (magnetic stripe) energy savers, only authorised SALTO key cards will switch on the lights. Any other card (frequent flyer, business card etc) will not be recognised.
The energy saving device is also available in a connected on-line version, which as well as energy saving indicates in real time the presence of guests or staff in a room, logging the information directly into the hotel PC.
When a guest enters the room and inserts their card into the ESD it switches on all electrical equipment.
When staff enters the room for cleaning or maintenance, the ESD recognises their staff card and switches on only the electrical equipment they need to accomplish their work.
The TV, air conditioning and mini bar are switched off or locked saving energy.
