The system allows a front desk to manage temperature, monitor humidity, sense motion, and to control costly HVAC functions. This system closes the loop on cleaning staff and maintenance functions with the front desk. The reception desk can be either on-site or across town, anywhere with internet access. (Great for off-property condo and time-share management)
Temperature limits can be remotely set for both heating and cooling modes. Any user or remote changes are logged to the cloud and are accessible to lodge management staff. Vacant rooms can be set to energy saving setpoints. If internet service is interrupted, the thermostat reverts to a “stand alone” mode and will operate independently as any thermostat, using the latest setpoints.
Using the LodgeStat wireless LEAK detection sensors in common leak zones we detect leaks before significate damage has been done. When a leak is detected we automatically close the main water valve and turn off the hot water heater. Simultaneously when a leak is detected a e-mail and/or text alert is sent to maintenance staff to prompt a maintenance visit.
MAIN WATER VALVE CONTROL:
The main water valve assembly is made up of 2 parts – the valve and the flow meter. When connected to the main controller the valve can be used to turn on and off the water as well as monitor flow. By turning off the valve when a leak is detected we can limit the amount of damage occurs in the unit.
With the flow meter we can verify flow in the unit where the leak is has been detected.
-The flow meter can detect constant flow in a unit. If constant flow is detected for over 24 hours a alert is sent via e-mail and/or by text to facilities maintenance so it can be checked.
-The flow meter can also detect cycling flow in a unit. This could indicate leaky toilet flapper that could be a source of wasted water.
MANAGEMENT of Availability and Maintenance:
Built-In communications allows immediate front desk annunciation (and logging) of when the room/unit is clean and ready for guests. The system also indicates which of the cleaning staff has cleaned the room. Any maintenance performed or required in the room can also be easily logged as well. (No cell phones or apps required)
LodgeStat easily replaces any conventional thermostat and usually installs in less than 20 minutes.
Each LodgeStat module communicates via its’ own built-in wireless network with the Condo Master unit. There is no other wireless setup needed as it does not use the Lodge’s WiFi network.
