Sensor Technology Saved 8700 KWh per Year at Dorint Hotels

Ensure efficient hotel management with touch sensors and temperature monitoring.

Operational inefficiencies can happen in many areas of the hotel, including the backroom server and the hotel lobby. No matter where those inefficiencies are, process bottlenecks are an unprofitable pain.

Powered by Disruptive Technologies' sensors, the IoT solution from Conrad Connect eliminates both hotel downtime due to server room outages, and guest serving inefficiencies.

As a result, hotel guests are happier and the hotel saves money and energy.

Save data and energy by knowing when to adjust the Air Conditioning run time in your server room

All your hotel hard drives and data storage banks should operate at optimal capacity, which sometimes causes overheating and server room outages. Thus, the server rooms in your hotel need constant temperature monitoring.

DT sensors measure server temperature around the clock and send insights to the Conrad Connect platform. The solution automatically adjusts the A/C run-time to ensure temperature optimization in your servers, no human intervention necessary.

By installing temperature sensors in your server room, you lower A/C run time by 20%, saving up to 8.700 KWh per year. That's comparable to the energy costs of two 4-person households!

Know through the touch of a button when your guests need serving

Your guests should be able to reach hotel staff from any place and at any time. It is nerve-wracking for guests to walk around the hotel to find cleaning staff or a server who can take their order.

Installing touch sensors around your serving areas and washrooms allows your customers to call servers to place orders or reach staff about hygiene concerns via the touch of a button. The solution improves your customers' experience and increases guest satisfaction.

By using Disruptive Technologies’ wireless sensors, you increase the efficiency of your operations and reduce repetitive tasks for your employees.

"Thanks to Conrad Connect we improved the service quality for our guests with a "Call Service - Button", which immediately passes the information on to the responsible employee using rules from the Conrad Connect Portal."

- Torsten Keppler, Head of IT, Dorint Hotels.


How to Use It

You can install this benefit-packed solution in three easy steps.

  1. Attach Disruptive Technologies temperature sensors to your server and the touch sensors in your lobby area.
  2. Create a Conrad Connect account.
  3. Set up your alarms to get alerts and relevant data visualization and analysis.

Why Disruptive Sensors

Sensors used to be bulky, complex and often inaccurate. We've completely rethought sensor design to enable data collection anywhere and everywhere. There's no need to "rip and replace" legacy systems to turn them into "smart" equipment.

  • Mini-sensors are the size of a postage stamp
  • Low power consumption means long battery life
  • Robust construction
  • Cost-efficient
  • Direct connections provide maximum accuracy
  • Proactive insights to IT teams to resolve server A/C related issues
  • Industrial-grade connectivity and built-in redundancy
  • Supports next-generation Internet of Things (IoT) networks
  • Increase in customer satisfaction
  • End-to-end security built into the design
  • Extensible platform to integrate into your systems
