Building, energy management systems implemented in Australia’s Crown Perth complex
Honeywell successfully implemented its networked Building Management and
Systems at the new Crown Towers Hotel, which is an expansion of the Crown complex in Perth, Australia.
The Honeywell Enterprise Building Integrator (EBI) and Building Management System (BMS) are integrated with Honeywell's INNCOM guest room energy management system (EMS) to optimize enterprise building controls, improve energy efficiency and coordinate access controls, lighting and drapes, reportsHospitality Net. The INNCOM system is also implemented at Crown Perth's Promenade Hotel.
HVAC control along with control of drapes, lighting controls via designer switches controlled from mobile tablets. Wireless integration is provided to the property's Saflok electronic guest room door locks. The INNCOM INNcontrol three real-time EMS uses its Deep Mesh Network to link management (GRMS), security and access control, dry fire and electrical wiring interconnect systems.

The INNCOM system can also communicate with other third-party systems that support tablet controls for personalized guest room options.
The networked system ensures guest comfort and convenience with maximum energy efficiency, officials said.
Crown Perth is considered Western Australia's premier integrated resort and one of Australia's most popular luxury tourism destinations. The resort opened to the public in 1985 and hosts more than nine million visitors every year. Run by a workforce of more than 5600 people, Crown Perth's sprawling resort features three luxury hotels (Crown Towers, CrownMetropoland Crown Promenade), a 24-hour casino, convention and gaming facilities, restaurants, spas, nightclubs and a 2,300-seat theater.
Honeywell also integrated its INNCOM EMS with Crown Perth's hotel room booking system to provide automatic occupancy-based energy optimization. The system limits energy use when guests are not in their rooms. Combined with other energy efficiency strategies implemented at the Promenade Hotel by Crown Perth under their sustainability program, the Honeywell system has been key in assisting to achieve approximately 20 percent whilst maintaining optimum guest comfort, officials said.
Further, across the rest of the complex, Honeywell updated Crown Perth's Building Management System and added enhancements such asmobilitytechnology that uses Honeywell's Enterprise Building Integrator (EBI) workstation running on mobile iPads, which provides real-time diagnostics to the engineering team which enables them to respond quickly to field calls.
Honeywell modernized the site's direct digital control (DDC) system that controls and monitors multiple building functions during Crown Perth's enterprise upgrade. Honeywell implemented its ComfortPoint DDC system that replaced the legacy XL500 DDC system and in the process also implemented agreed optimization strategies to create a higher level of efficiency in the air conditioning plant that serves Crown Perth's buildings.
Honeywell's Crown Perth Building Management and modernization is expected to be finalized by year’s end.
