ATLANTA, January 7, 2019 – Honeywell (NYSE: HON), a global leader in connected hospitality, announced that the Avista Resort installed the Honeywell INNCOM e7 Thermostat and Deep Mesh Network throughout its 378-room property. The Avista Resort is operated by Seaside Properties in Myrtle Beach, S.C. The INNCOM e7 Thermostat offers a modern design with easy-to-use controls based on a patent-pending Smart Wall Plate that provides hotels with a reliable back-up of the device configuration. The e7 automatically reduces in-room energy costs in some cases as much as 35 percent, is compatible with most HVAC solutions and equipped for Honeywell’s Connected Guest integration.
Honeywell continuously strives to strengthen its products and customer experiences. The e7 Thermostat comes with a series of three step-by-step videos to simplify the installation process that accessible to customers via the provided QR code on the box and partners can also log into the portal to view the videos. These videos include an out-of-the-box experience, installation, commissioning and troubleshooting guides.
Honeywell’s INNCOM e7 Thermostat is the first enterprise-grade environmental control and energy management solution to work with Amazon Alexa voice control in hospitality for an effortless guest experience that may include room temperature, lighting, drapery and amenities services. The easy-to-use controls and patent-pending Smart Wall Plate design featured in the e7 Thermostat provides hotel staff with a reliable back-up of the device configuration. It also makes routine maintenance or replacement of the e7 energy management system simple, even for other staff, which helps reduce ownership costs.
“The e7 Thermostats work well with the resort’s air conditioning and electric heating systems. But it’s not just about the system; it is about the people behind the scenes that deliver the system to you. Honeywell was very responsive and provided excellent installation service, training and support to Avista,” said Chris Shroff, owner, Seaside Properties. “I would recommend Honeywell and the e7 to other operators.”
The e7 also integrates with technologies from other companies including Crave and Intelity to control the entire guestroom environment from a designated tablet. These integrations and controls can even be expanded to other in-room user interfaces such as smart TVs or video-on-demand boxes.
