SensorSuite Matrix™ platform

Installed 2014

SensorSuite® installed its SensorSuite Matrix™ gateway and 225 EM1 Wireless Energy Management controllers on every PTAC unit in the hotel. Every controller had a temperature sensor, motion sensor, and power sensor. After two initial weeks of gathering baseline data, the controllers were set to function in Demand Management mode. EM1 Energy Management controllers perform demand management intelligently by enabling electrical loads to communicate and coordinate with one another, thereby reducing the number of loads running at the same time. The system’s proprietary SensorSuite Matrix™ platform allowed for significant reductions in electrical demand while maintaining occupant comfort. The controllers also did this automatically, eliminating all intervention from the facility employees.

The Results

Town Inn Suites applied for the saveONenergy RETROFIT Program, funded by the IESO and received $35,120 as a project incentive. Savings of up to 31% were measured and verified. SensorSuite’s SuiteHeat solution is saving this hotel approximately $23,000 per year with a ROI of 2.5 years.

SensorSuite has been providing free saveONenergy Business program support to Toronto Hydro business customers since 2012. This includes acting as the Applicantion Representative for any business customers seeking incentives for completing electricity saving retrofit projects in collaboration with SensorSuite.

As the Application Representative for Town Inn Suites, SensorSuite looked after the entire incentive application process in an effort to realize the maximum incentive amount available for this Custom Track retrofit project.

As a new SensorSuite client, this service was extended to Town Inn Suites for free.
