University Dorm

Estimated Total Savings: 20-40%
Autani helps maintain comfortable temperatures, avoiding extreme temperatures in the dorms. With smart thermostats, no longer do windows need to be left open year-round to compensate for overheating or overcooling. The wireless integration of the lighting in common areas, plug load controls, and HVAC system controls operating costs while keeping the residents safe and comfortable in a smarter dorm. Facility managers can remotely monitor the dorm and receive maintenance alerts if the equipment is misused or damaged.

Product Recommendations

  • Wireless Room Controller

    Integrates with existing wiring to provide fixture zoning. Allows wireless integration with sensors and switches.

  • Wireless Multi-Sensor & Fixture Controls

    Integrates occupancy sensing and daylight harvesting into the light fixtures. These can be used where fixtures require individual control or where running wire between fixtures is not feasible due to the building structure.

  • SMT-131 Wireless Thermostat

    Provides flexible configuration for use in both 2-pipe and 4-pipe heating and cooling systems.

  • Plug Load Controller

    Allows for wireless monitoring and control of outlets. Integrates with building schedules to allow for calendar events such as holidays.

Control Strategies

  • Occupancy / Vacancy Sensing

    Turn lights on when occupants are in a space and off when they vacate the space. Alternate Functionality: Partial-on and manual-on modes are supported for additional savings and for more stringent local codes.

  • High-End Trim / Institutional Tuning

    Set the maximum light level based on customer requirements in each space to prevent overlighting.

  • Local Dimming Control

    Permit occupants to lower the light level below the high-end trim for comfort and additional savings.

  • HVAC Control

    Manage smart thermostats and sensors centrally to optimize comfort and energy savings via calendar and occupancy based setbacks.

  • Plug Load Control

    Manage control of select plug loads for demand management and the elimination of phantom loads.

  • Automatic Scheduling & Timeclock

    Automatically dim or shut off lighting based on centrally managed schedules.

  • Demand Management

    Manage lighting and HVAC electrical loads to limit ratchet charges and peak demand pricing periods.

Business Outcomes

  • Monitor extreme consumption demands on the heating and electrical systems to ensure the building is operating as intended.
  • Log space utilization in common areas for insights on occupancy patterns and operational costs.
  • Reduce power consumption during school breaks with flexible schedule management.
  • Align energy costs with comfort, occupancy, and safety requirements.
