The 426-room Hyatt Place
- Waikiki in Honolulu, Hawaii has implemented the Telkonet, Inc.
EcoSmart energy management solution. The installation featured the first usage of the EcoRemote, an infrared transmitter developed by Telkonet to operate any remote-controlled HVAC unit with an on-the-wall thermostat.
Pacific Energy installed Telkonet’s EcoRemote inside mini-split HVAC systems at the Hyatt Place to allow for convenient guest control from EcoSmart thermostats. Additionally, the EcoRemote enables Telkonet’s patented Recovery Time technology to maximize energy savings in an unoccupied room without compromising guest comfort. Through Recovery Time’s constant monitoring of an HVAC unit’s ability to drive temperature and the real-time adjustment of setback temperature, rooms are never excessively hot or cold when a guest returns.
In addition to providing EcoRemote modules, Telkonet worked with Pacific Energy to install EcoWave intelligent thermostat packages, EcoView occupancy sensors and EcoContact door contacts. The door contacts, installed on patio doors, stop in-room HVAC units from running when a patio door is open to prevent the units from being overworked and provide additional runtime savings.
