Honeywell said it is expanding its INNCOM e-Series energy management thermostats to include a battery-powered model for quick and flexible installation. The e7w Wireless EMS Thermostat is equipped with built-in occupancy, temperature and humidity sensors that can help hoteliers save 25-40% on guestroom HVAC energy usage1 when part of an INNCOM networked Energy Management System (EMS).
While a networked EMS can help hoteliers improve their bottom line, the e7w’s advanced EMS offers continuously optimized climate control for guests through passive infrared sensors (PIR) technology. Together, it offers hoteliers a comprehensive, scalable energy management and hospitality IoT platform.
The e7w has a battery life of two years and enables easy installation, providing hoteliers up to $50 in labor cost savings per room by eliminating the need to pull wires. The thermostat’s wireless design also allows it to be placed virtually anywhere in a guestroom, allowing for precise occupancy detection while also creating more opportunities for accessible temperature control, making it ideal for challenging applications such as ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act) designed rooms.
With a user-friendly interactive design and an easy to read keypad, the e7w thermostat delivers real-time data when deployed in a networked application for INNCOM’s INNcontrol™ 3 or INNcontrol™ 5 system. This allows hoteliers to access and track data on room occupancy status, energy usage, equipment alarm reporting, as well as integrate to a major property management system (PMS) among other systems.
