 Inncom, in Partnership with Sun International, Provides Energy Management Monitoring Systems 
for Atlantis II Resort
Old Lyme, Connecticut - April 1999 - INNCOM International, a global leader in advanced guestroom control systems, has a calculated success on its hands with the installation of its integrated guestroom control system at Atlantis II in the Bahamas. In addition to a powerful energy management capability, INNCOM's system provides central control of guestroom locks. SUN International, developer and operator of the 1,200 room new addition to the Paradise Island mega resort, chose INNCOM for this project. A partnership agreement between SUN and INNCOM provides for a substantial part of the system's cost to be paid for by verified energy savings. For tracking purposes, INNCOM's development team created and installed an Energy Transfer Monitoring (ETM) system at Atlantis II designed to monitor and confirm savings. 

ETM converts temperature readings, fan speeds and a multitude of inputs into an understandable calculation of savings on a daily basis. According to INNCOM's CEO Duane Buckingham .... "Now we have all the tools needed to help hotels both realize and quantify energy savings, while concurrently enhancing guest comfort." 

The net results of INNCOM's guestroom control system installation at Atlantis II are impressive, including highly favorable comments by guests regarding the climate control and comfort in their rooms. During the first four months of operation, the system has achieved savings of more than 35%. With the high-energy costs in the Bahamas, this translates into more than $1,000 per day in savings and, offered INNCOM's Vice President, Mr. Oliver, "more than 125,000 gallons per year of fuel oil that will not spew hydrocarbons into the atmosphere." 

INNCOM pioneered the development of advanced, integrated guestroom control systems and is recognized as the global leader in that discipline. Presently, it is the only company that offers systems combining DDC energy management, on-line lock control and a range of guest interface devices, such as its newly introduced IR6060 touchscreen telephone control console. In June 1998, AMP Corporation and Tucson Electric Power Company made significant minority equity investments in INNCOM allowing the company to further expand its infrastructure and to pursue market opportunities more aggressively. INNCOM's guestroom base is growing at more than 15,000 rooms per year at an international as well as domestic level. An R&D team that responds creatively to ever-expanding market needs, coupled with a corporate commitment to customer service and support, is key to the company's continued strong growth. 

INNCOM will introduce two new major products in the near future, which are expected to have a significant impact across the entire spectrum of the lodging market. One is designed to dramatically enhance the company's competitive position in the DDC energy management segment of the market; the other will further enhance the ease of installation and use of INNCOM's central control equipment.
