A climate control system may not be the first thing that comes to mind when you think of commercial automation, but businesses in a growing variety of industries have discovered the customer satisfaction and energy savings that come with intelligent climate control.
Hotel chains have been using automated climate control systems for years. With The SOHO Shop’s technology, guests can easily set their temperature preferences using a convenient in-room touchscreen control. From the intuitive interface, guests can automate everything from a steady 72°F to a climate routine that cools off as they sleep, then wakes them with gradually increasing temperatures and slowly brightening lights. And in addition to the obvious benefits for the guests, the hotel itself benefits from an automated system that turns on when a guest checks in and shuts down when the guest checks out, reducing energy wasted on unoccupied rooms.
Businesses such as salons, spas, and doctor’s offices are increasingly using this same type of client personalization as an enticement to grow their own customer base. Using an in-room keypad or touchscreen, clients can choose from an array of personalized options, including entertainment, lighting, or temperature. Comfortable clients are far more likely to feel that they’ve had a positive experience and to want to return to your business.
Energy costs are a large and growing sector of business expenditures, and the push to go green can benefit both business and the environment when reduced energy consumption results in lower power bills. Intelligent climate control can help a system maintain a stable temperature without constantly running the furnace or air conditioner, and The SOHO Shop’s programmable interface allows you to set routines that draw power only during your business hours, saving you from the cost of heating an empty building.
