With GreenStar, the guest activates the room's Master Control Switch by inserting their keycard into an illuminated slot upon entry. This engages an RF transmitter that sets the entire room to “occupied” mode. The guest then has control of the room’s electrical and HVAC systems. When the guest leaves, they remove their keycard, and after a 30-second delay, a different RF transmission is sent to all the active room components, such as thermostats, wall switches, wall plugs, and PTAC control units, setting the system to the “unoccupied” mode. The central control will then change the settings on the room’s thermostat to save energy. Upon return, the RF transmitter is triggered and the guest regains control of the HVAC system.
