SensorFlow Provides Smart Solution for Hotels in Malaysia
SensorFlow, the smart IoT solution for hotel room environment management has officially launched in Malaysia. Founded in 2016 and headquartered in Singapore, SensorFlow’s solution monitors, analyses and automates hotel room environments to optimise energy efficiency and reduce operational costs.
SensorFlow’s entry to the market is aligned with Malaysia’s sustainability reform agenda as Malaysia is emphasising on green growth and sustainable development as a top priority for 2019 and beyond. Coupled with eco-conscious millennials that make up 50% of travellers today, SensorFlow’s smart green solution will help to drive the sustainability agenda across an expanding number of travel and hospitality corporations.
With SensorFlow, hotels can save up to 30% in energy consumption by automating empty guestrooms and reducing unnecessary wastage. This is achieved using state-of-the-art Internet of Things (IoT) technology which supports an interconnected network of devices to monitor hotel room environments in real-time, including: temperature, humidity, occupancy status and energy consumption. When guests are detected to leave the room, SensorFlow’s Artificial Intelligence (AI) software automatically increases the room temperature or switches off the air-conditioning to save energy.
“Sustainable practice is an on-going process. The increasing demand and the growing number of green hotels speaks volumes about the huge impact of sustainable solutions – not only does it reduce our environmental footprint, green solutions can generate great cost-savings. We also see a huge potential in Malaysia as more ‘green’ hotels are emerging. In fact, we are currently running trials with a few major hotel brands in Malaysia and they are impressed with the results of savings as high as 30% on energy costs,” added Sai.
The start-up is focused on expanding its footprint to hit at least 800,000 rooms installed by 2022 throughout the region. Committed to their vision of making smart buildings a reality, SensorFlow has plans on taking its smart energy management solution globally within the next few years.
