VingCard Elsafe’s Orion Energy Management System Wins Prestigious Star Award From Top Hotel Magazine

March 30, 2012 - VingCard Elsafe, a global leader in hospitality security and part of the ASSA ABLOY Group, announces that its Orion energy management system has won a prestigious Star Award from Top Hotel, Germany’s most subscribed hotel industry trade publication.

Orion was honored in the Technology category, which was voted on by more than 2,500 Top Hotel readers as part of the magazine’s annual competition. The award was presented during the recent InterNorga hospitality trade show in Hamburg.

Orion by VingCard Elsafe is comprised of wireless digital thermostats, occupancy sensors, door position interfaces, remote server software and a comprehensive dashboard reporting interface. The room control dashboard provides an overview of guestroom electronic systems, including occupancy status, locks, safes, lighting and total energy consumption. Orion automatically assumes control of ambient temperature when guestrooms are unoccupied, never allowing them to become either too warm or too cold. Upon guests' return, the system automatically resumes the preset temperature settings. Likewise, Orion interfaces with the hotel's property management system to pre-condition the room upon guest check-in and automatically engage enhanced energy savings mode upon check-out.

“Plenty of hospitality locking vendors like to say they’re at the forefront of technology, but only VingCard Elsafe has the accolades to back it up,” says Rune Venas, Vice President Global Business Development ASSA ABLOY Hospitality. “This honor for Orion is especially important to us because it is voted on by the readership of Top Hotel—actual hoteliers in the field—who have seen Orion in action and understand the value it brings in both hotel guest satisfaction and the properties’ bottom lines.”

VingCard Elsafe is a world leader in developing locking systems and electronic in-room safes for the hospitality industry, offering user-friendly security systems that meet the unique operational needs of hotels and resorts. For more information, please visit www.vingcardelsafe.com.
