Visit Booth #4957 at HD Expo

Niantic, Conn.� May 11, 2009 � Energy management is an integral component of high-performance, sustainable design, and the energy-saving solutions from INNCOM International, based here, can help designers, architects, owners and operators who are considering new construction or renovation projects to craft a plan that goes above and beyond the required standards in energy efficiency and environmental-conscious design.  ENERGY STAR qualified products and those that help facilities achieve Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) certification will be on display in Booth #4957 at HD Expo, the 2009 Hospitality Design Expo and Conference, May 14-15 at the Sands Expo in Las Vegas.

INNCOM develops, manufactures and markets room automation systems for the international lodging industry. INNCOM�s product line ranges from programmable digital thermostats to fully integrated energy management, lighting control and communication systems�all designed to enhance guest comfort, safety and satisfaction while increasing bottom-line profits and being environmentally friendly.

�As the global leader in integrated room automation systems, INNCOM provides device and property connectivity like no one else,� said Rick Quirino, INNCOM President. �We are helping owners and operators take control of their energy costs and enhance their guests� experiences, while our flexible, expandable and customizable Green product lines allow designers and architects to tailor the room controls � from the most minimalistic to the most complex designs imaginable -- around their specific guestroom design scheme.� 

Recyclable, Flexible EMS

HD Expo attendees are pre-scheduling appointments with INNCOM to get a hands-on demonstration of the company�s newest design-centric room devices made of recyclable glass for temperature and lighting control, as well as other functions. The e4 Glass Series Smart Digital Thermostat and Switches give designers a blank canvas for any image, graphic or identity desired to be silk-screened onto the glass faceplate. 

 �What once was a design challenge due to the generic look of off-the-shelf switching equipment, now has become an exciting, personalized design opportunity,� INNCOM�s Quirino said.

The e4 Glass Series Smart Digital Thermostat is a member of INNCOM�s Integrated Room Automation System (IRAS). Its core is a Direct Digital Control processor capable of controlling virtually any fan coil unit, heat pump or packaged terminal air conditioner. It includes an easy-to-read illuminated Liquid Crystal Display packaged in an innovative light touch switching form factor. The system can be expanded to include functionality such as humidity control, outside temperature display, occupancy reporting to housekeeping, automatic control of lights and the patent-pending ecoMODE� functionality. When connected to INNCOM�s centrally controlled system, additional energy savings are achieved by using a broader setback band when the guestroom is un-rented.

The e4 Glass Series Switch, a low voltage switch input for lighting, fan, privacy, make-up-room or drape applications, is also a member of INNCOM�s IRAS family and is available in various models. The Glass Series Switch is activated when a guest touches the capacitance switching glass surface. The unit can be equipped with multiple touch switches to meet application-specific requirements. Additionally, each touch switch can be equipped with a color LED that acts as an indicator or pilot light depending on the switch�s assigned function. 

�Integrating lighting and room controls and tying both back to the building-management system is a requirement of designers and architects today looking for a design-centric EMS,� said Duane Buckingham, INNCOM CEO. �We are confident that HD Expo attendees will be extremely impressed by its functionality and design flexibility. The only limits to this solution are those that lie within a designer�s aesthetic creativity.�

The complete IRAS product line, including Wireless Digital Assistant (controls room temperature, lighting, drapes and alarm clock), Third-Party VOIP Phone Interface (guestroom controls through the phone plus access to weather, restaurant listings, movies and entertainment channels), and Bedside Tabletop Controllers (including the eco-friendly, touch activated Glass Series) also will be on display.
