Hotels and B&Bs
Hotels and B&Bs
Any accommodation facility, from large hotels to small B&Bs can be profitably equipped with a domotic system. Automation makes it possible to:
Control operating costs.
Optimize all energy consumption to achieve a more sustainable and competitive facility.
Activate, manage, and control all room service operations.
Provide access to guests and staff in a completely autonomous way (e.g., automation of check-in and check-out operations).
Efficiently manage all service personnel.
Remotely manage the front desk (for managers who request it).
The Benefits of Automation: A Competitive, Sustainable and Comfortable Facility
Equipping a hospitality facility with an automation system, regardless of size, is a winning choice and an investment with guaranteed return, both for hotels open year-round and for those facilities that operate seasonally (even small to medium-sized ones).
The primary benefits are the creation of a sustainable facility and a focus on guests’ needs. No matter the size of the facility, the automatic management of a hospitality business’s technology guarantees significant energy savings without compromising the customer comfort.
A typical example is a seasonal hotel or a family-run bed & breakfast. In facilities subject to variable tourist flows, an automation system allows you to activate only those rooms that are occupied in accordance with the booking calendar. During months of inactivity, consumption can even be set to zero, ensuring optimal management of expenses from an ecologically sustainable perspective.
Cost reductions are tangible. With smart lighting and temperature control systems, energy costs can lead to savings of up to 36% on electricity bills and up to 48% on heating-related expenses (estimates based on EN 15232).
At least, in a highly competitive industry such as tourism, customers are likely to choose facilities that can offer them more comfortable rooms, customizable room service settings, and greater autonomy (e.g., self check-in / check-out). This is an added value for the facility that contributes to the loyalty of satisfied guests through positive customer experience, positive publicity, and word of mouth.
The Three Duemmegi Solutions for Hotels, B&Bs and Student Residences
Another key advantage for an accommodation facility is the access management. An access automation system allows guests to move around the facility independently, and employees and suppliers to optimize their access time. Privacy and security are guaranteed as each person is identified and enabled with access only to designated areas without affecting anyone’s privacy and freedom of movement. Even outdoor spaces such as pools, spas, and parking lots can be managed through automated access management.
Duemmegi provides 3 solutions to meet the specific needs of each facility.
HOTELS – Traditional badge system for facility automation with access and room-service control. This is the conventional system already available in many hotels, even small ones.
HOTELS and B&Bs – “Get-Access for Hospitality” is a complete automation solution with remote reception and integrated business management systems. Access is granted via mobile phone or, in case of emergency, using a QR code. Remote reception makes it easy to manage self guest check-in and check-out, as well as the reservation process.
B&Bs – A system designed to manage an accommodation facility remotely. Equipped with an Internet-accessible console to create access credentials (with expiration dates), the system allows guests to enter the facility independently through numeric keypads or QR code readers (without an integrated PMS management system).
All Duemmegi solutions for the automation of hospitality facilities ensure system flexibility and, in many cases, aesthetic customization of components in order to meet both technical and design requirements.
