Honeywell said it is shortening training and installation requirements for hotel properties around the world with its design, commissioning and sales software offerings, INNtool and EngINN. The Honeywell INNCOM solutions simplify the design and implementation of its hotel guestroom systems. INNtool is a guestroom design tool that allows real-time, on-property INNCOM system design, HVAC equipment compatibility confirmation, and pricing. This can lower costs for Honeywell partners and authorized system integrators (ASIs) by reducing installation time so they can bid more competitively on projects. EngINN is Honeywell’s on-property system commissioning tool that quickly pushes guestroom configuration across an entire property.

The evolution of INNtool and EngINN make any INNCOM solution suite easy to design ‘on the fly’ to save hotels time and money for complex projects. The systems are developed for international deployment and are used by Honeywell partners and ASIs globally in the more than 35 countries in which it sells products. Honeywell’s 32 years of hospitality experience with its INNCOM solutions continues to lower the cost of essential hotel systems and increase profitability for operators. Access to the INNtool and EngINN solution suite is provided at no charge to partners and ASIs that order an INNCOM project.

With INNtool and EngINN, you can help setup the following solutions which Honeywell provides: intelligent energy management, lighting controls, drapery controls, entrance controls, voice controls, Deep Mesh networks and amenity and service requests each of which are installed in thousands of existing properties worldwide.  

INNtool gives INNCOM staff the ability to work with the property’s team to make real-time design decisions based on room type, equipment and third-party integration criteria. INNtool also matches INNCOM’s products with property design and finish requirements and provides a clear product render and an accurate quote on site. This lets hoteliers quickly confirm their design so samples can be supplied promptly. When all design features are finalized, INNtool’s files are loaded into EngINN for system commissioning and set up.

EngINN may be used in networked properties to communicate ‘over the air’ with INNCOM devices to establish a hotel’s guestroom temperature settings. EngINN is able to centrally configure INNCOM equipment for optimal guest comfort and energy savings on property, without engineers commissioning thermostats individually.

INNtool and EngINN shorten the mock-up time for room system selection and saves time and money for property operators. Honeywell’s INNtool graphically shows each component of a proposed installation and makes it possible for clients and global technology partners to work together more efficiently.
