When busy city folks need to get away, or weary travellers need a change of pace, the Scarlet Hotel is ready to help. Offering guests stunning views, luxurious rooms, top entertainment and tranquil spa treatments, it is the perfect getaway. The management sought a new hospitality lighting system that would also help with sustainability efforts.
Lightmaster-Direct, a Philips partner, got to work installing the latest light technology. Public areas were brightened up with warm welcoming lights that make guests feel right at home. In the private areas, customizable guest room lighting makes every stay more memorable. Guests can choose a light setting that matches their moods, from pre-set scenes including ‘ambient’, ‘bright’, ‘relax’, ‘bath’, ‘night’, ‘balcony’, and ‘all off’.
At the heart of the new hospitality lighting are the Dynalite controls. This reliable system allows the hotel to minimize energy waste. It uses motion detection to determine when rooms are empty, before automatically dimming lights to conserve energy. The system also senses the amount of ambient daylight in the room, ensuring that artificial light is only used when needed.
The new lighting has added increased comfort around the hotel. The finished system achieved a staggering internal lighting efficacy of just 3.36 watts per square metre—just 34% of the energy used by conventional lights.
