Revolutionizing Hospitality: Introducing Rhapsody system for Smart and Sustainable Lodging

Transforming Your Hotel: A Smart and Sustainable Approach to Hospitality

Converting your hotel into a smart and sustainable lodging is a fundamental step in enhancing the overall guest experience and optimizing resources. With a connected environment, you have the opportunity to intelligently manage a range of vital functions, including access control, “Do Not Disturb” (DND) and “Make Up Room” (MUR) signaling, heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) system control, room occupancy monitoring, and window and door control. This intelligent integration not only enhances the operational efficiency of your hotel but also helps reduce energy waste and improve the overall sustainability of the property. 

Maximizing ROI: Rhapsody by VDA Telkonet Reduces Energy Consumption by 30-45%

Rhapsody, VDA Telkonet’s new Energy Management Platform, consists of smart thermostats that communicate with cloud-based software to save energy, based on occupancy. 

The system saves 30-45% on a hotel’s energy expenditure. It typically pays for itself in less than three years (ROI). The secret to saving energy is to aggressively set back temperature when guests are not in the room.  

Rhapsody controls room temperature, but not at the expense of guest comfort. We strike a balance between energy savings and guest comfort, customized to meet the unique needs of our clients. Rhapsody is quick and easy to install, and the thermostats fit into typical junction boxes, limiting or even eliminating additional cables.

PIR Occupancy Sensors

Rhapsody thermostats feature PIR occupancy sensors, calibrated to extreme sensitivity. They can even detect sleeping occupants, thereby avoiding shutting off air conditioning which we all know causes unhappy guests and middle-of-the-night complaints.

Humidity Sensors

Rhapsody thermostats also feature humidity sensors. Humidity percentages are tracked in the software. Depending on the HVAC system, when a room is unoccupied, we can drive down humidity more aggressively without making the room uncomfortably cold for guests. This reduces mold and mildew and damage to furniture, walls, and carpeting. 

Seamlessly Sync with Wi-Fi

Rhapsody thermostats communicate with the Rhapsody software via Wi-Fi. We can take advantage of existing Wi-Fi access points, thereby reducing labor and parts installation expenses. Rhapsody thermostats are compatible with many HVAC systems including Mitsubishi, Daikin, Toshiba and Sanyo.
