Hotel Key Card Switches

Improve energy saving in your hotel, B&B or guesthouse

Hotel Key Card switches improve energy saving by working as the main switch in a hotel room. They’re easily operated by the guests, with lights and electric heating only becoming operational when the guest enters the relevant card into the switch. This saves energy by stopping the room being necessarily lit, heated or cooled when it isn’t occupied. When the card is removed, the switch can be set to let the power stay on for a pre-defined amount of time (from 10 seconds to 5 minutes) .

Glow in the dark

The switches come with a small LED indicator, allowing guests to easily find the switch in the dark, so no additional lighting is needed to be fitted. The switches are designed to fit standard key card sizes of 85.60 mm × 53.98 mm, which is the same as a credit or debit card.

Switching ability

The switches are designed to switch up to a 6 amp inductive load or a 10 amp resistive load, meaning that they can be retro-fitted to nearly all rooms with ease. Larger loads such as air-con systems can also be controlled via the use of a contactor.

Looking the part

The switches come in a range of finishes, meaning that it won’t look out of place with your existing faceplates. Styles include white, chrome, stainless steel, brushed steel, polished brass, matt black, black nickel and more. With access to the full range of light switches, power and media sockets from the Click range, if you wanted to add these as part of a full refurbishment we can make sure everything matches perfectly.

How much will I save using hotel key card switches?

This really depends on your occupancy rate. The average hotel room has a 65% occupancy rate & of that, the guest is in the room for around 40% of the time. If you are currently heating, cooling, or lighting the room for the large periods of time nobody is in it, then you should see savings of more than the cost of installation.
