DETROIT and MIAMI, Sept. 25, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Known for its stunning mid-century modern style, The Confidante Miami Beach now has a 21st century approach to guest comfort, thanks to its recent installation of the WiSuite Hotel Energy Management system. The innovative solution enables hotel management to achieve their energy savings and sustainability goals while meeting the high standards of room comfort their clientele expect.
The WiSuite solution features touchscreen-enabled WiStat-SS smart thermostats in all 363 guest rooms connected to the hotel's property management system (PMS) via the WiSuite Intelligent Network (WIN). Hotel operations staff can now remotely manage all guest room HVAC units using algorithms that automatically analyze room sensor and revenue-based occupancy data. When a guest checks in, the WiSuite system automatically takes the room out of energy savings mode and initiates a predefined comfort mode.
In addition, the WiSuite platform tracks equipment runtime hotel-wide, helping streamline the deployment of staff for preventative maintenance tasks and extending the life of HVAC assets.
Tailored guest comfort strategies
WiSuite collaborated with The Confidante's operations team to define guest comfort templates that optimize the system for unique property characteristics, including sun load, room size and configuration, and specific HVAC equipment profiles. The hotel team can now set room-specific climate strategies to ensure a high level of guest satisfaction throughout the property.
The WiSuite system also helps accelerate response to in-room equipment issues. The platform generates demand warning alerts when HVAC units fail to meet guest demand, enabling The Confidante's engineering team to proactively resolve issues before guests are even aware.
"The Confidante has a well-earned reputation for 'wowing' our guests with impeccable service and unmatched style and comfort. The WiSuite Hotel Energy Management system is a powerful new tool for maintaining that reputation while helping us effectively manage our energy use," said Keith Butz, General Manager of The Confidante.
"Helping our clients hit profitable hotel energy management targets without compromising guest comfort is the reason we're in business," said WiSuite CEO John Gallant, "To have a hotel as well-known and respected as The Confidante choose WiSuite for their energy management is a wonderful validation of our mission, our technology and our team."

The WiSuite Intelligent Network (WIN) and WiStat-SS line of smart thermostats provide comprehensive energy consumption savings, management and reporting.
