Hotels across SE Asia sign up SensorFlow for smart energy

SensorFlow has signed exclusive sustainability deals worth Singapore $3.8 million with hotels across Southeast Asia, specifically in Singapore, Malaysia, Cambodia, Vietnam, Thailand and Indonesia as well as Hong Kong.

The technology start-up aimed at improving energy productivity in the hospitality industry, signed on over 5,000 rooms across the region to adopt their smart solution.

SensorFlow’s solutions are being adopted by key hotels, resorts and residences such as Straits Organization & Hmlet (Singapore), Dorsett Residences Bukit Bintang (Malaysia), Novotel Nusa Dua & Pullman Bali Legian Beach (Indonesia), Fusion Resort Cam Ranh (Vietnam) and Dream Phuket Hotel (Thailand).

The company’s wireless internet of things (IoT) automated energy management system can be retrofitted into a hotel’s Heating Ventilation Air Condition (HVAC) systems. Its technology also allows hotels to track and monitor real-time data on guest behaviour and energy consumption for key insights that make energy efficiency and operational management planning effortless. 

Simultaneously, the system also provides immediate maintenance alerts to prevent unforeseen equipment failures, avoid guest complaints and minimise costly repairs.

“With the world going through visible environmental changes, the hospitality industry – a sector that consumes high levels of energy throughout the year – are now being pressed to have their buildings operate with more sustainability,” said Saikrishnan Ranganathan CEO and co-founder of SensorFlow.

“Our deals attest to the fact that we can use technology to implement smart energy solutions in a wide range of hotels with ease,” the CEO added. “Moving forward, we hope to show how we can bridge the gap between the hospitality industry’s sustainability efforts and onboarding difficulties via technology.”

Following these partnerships, SensorFlow seeks to continue its journey of ramping up the hospitality industry’s sustainability initiatives by retrofitting its technology in 10,000 rooms by early 2020 and 800,000 rooms by 2022.
