A hotel on the US Eastern Seaboard noted by ForbesTraveler.com
as one of America's Greenest Hotels and a popular casino hotel
at the shores of Lake Michigan will install EcoSmart intelligent
thermostats, occupancy sensors, outlets and light switches in
all of their guest rooms to integrate with door contacts,
doorbell, room signage and the hotel's property management
system to reduce their carbon footprint in a luxurious setting.
The EcoSmart system is part of their overall environmental

The cloud-based EcoCentral Virtual Engineer(TM) Command Center
will control a wireless mesh communication network that manages
data between rooms and floors to individually learn each room's
HVAC needs and optimize energy efficiency. Remote 24/7
monitoring will provide alerts and predictive reports to reduce
troubleshooting and increase facility staff response time and
efficiency. A myriad of equipment performance data is analyzed
in real time to continuously calculate actual energy savings and

"Over 15,000 hotels
around the world use the Hotel Carbon Measurement Initiative to
calculate and communicate the carbon footprint of hotel stays and
meetings in a consistent and transparent way. The EcoSmart system is
perfectly positioned to help hoteliers meet specific energy-savings
goals, such as reducing their carbon footprint by as much as 30% -
an objective where Telkonet is becoming a preferred provider,"
explained Telkonet CEO Jason Tienor. "In these two properties, the
EcoSmart system is projected to reduce HVAC energy consumption by
32%, yielding a payback of less than 2.5 years. It has shown to be
incredibly flexible and scalable, providing centralized control and
effective energy management. As proof, Telkonet's energy management
technology is installed in over 300,000 hotel rooms worldwide."
At these Green focused properties, guests, staff and vendors are
encouraged to embrace and practice an environmentally sensitive
lifestyle. The EcoSmart system will provide aggressive energy
savings by turning off lights and power outlets while guests are
away and set back HVAC equipment to save energy, then resume
guest-specified comfort levels within minutes of their return to the
room. A deep setback setting lets HVAC equipment idle at minimum
settings while guest rooms are unsold to maximize cost savings.
