The Movenpick Hotel, Riyadh, is turning to ABB and its Room Master solution to give guests better control over the environment in their rooms.

The 447 room hotel, which will be the largest in Riyadh when it opens, is installing ABB's Room Master system to allow guests to control functions inside their rooms including lighting, heating, ventilation, and air conditioning, as well as room access and shading.

ABB Room Master technology integrates with the hotel's electrical network, using KNX bus technology, and will enable the deployment of additional guest services in future.

Paul Papanicolaou general manager of Mövenpick Hotel Riyadh commented: "ABB's smart room technology will provide our guests with even more comfort whilst allowing the Mövenpick Hotel Riyadh to be the first green hotel in the capital due to the significant energy savings that we will benefit from."

The project, which is due to be completed by next year, is being carried out by ABB local partner Nassli.

"By implementing ABB's smart room management system the Mövenpick Hotel Riyadh is not only reducing its power consumption by a double-digit percentage but it is also offering guests a unique service. Mövenpick guests will be able to enjoy one room control for all of their needs," explained Ali Nazzal, senior sales & operation manager, Smart Home and Intelligent Building Controls, ABB Saudi Arabia.
