Development of an energy management system for hotels with standard sensor/actuator components and the European Installation Bus (EIB)


Today the energy management of multifunctional buildings like hotels consists of island solutions. Typical these are various centralized systems for management of heating, electricity room access control, fire protection, time management, house breaking with individual wiring. The objective of this project is the development of an energy management with standard sensor/actuator components and the European Installation Bus (EIB) for heating, lightening, window status, air conditioning, guest presence detection and its integration into the Hotel management systems. The information available in the hotel/room management system will be used for an effective energy management. It is expected to reduce total energy costs by 20 %. Installation costs will be reduced because of the integration and multifunctional use of sensors and actuators for systems like access control, fire protection, Single room energy management, break in protection and hotel visualization and communication only by the EIB. ESR Automatisierungstechnik GmbH develops concepts and distributes products for building automation and energy management. Elektrotechnik Bunke provides complete solutions in Building system technology. Claus Grothusen OHG distributes tele- communication, television and safety systems for Hotels, including planning, installation and testing.
