Hotels and cruise ships must pay special attention to energy efficiency if they want to control costs. They can save energy and reduce energy consumption by intelligently controlling heating and cooling in hotel and cruise rooms without compromising guest comfort. A variety of lighting scenes in the lounge, dining room and spa can enhance the atmosphere of the room depending on usage and schedule. For cost-conscious hotel room applications, the BC9191 Compact Room Controller provides all the features required for a standard room. The Befo software library helps optimize connections to external components and systems: for example, the TwinCAT FIAS server provides a direct interface to the hotel management system, Fidelio FIAS, so that the hotel reservation system can communicate directly with the room controller.
Befo's PC-based control solution integrates all the systems used to control the stage machinery on the same platform. Integrated technologies include object movement control, stage lighting control, audio-visual multimedia technology, and building automation control.
