A Singapore-based startup is offering hoteliers a smart solution to reduce their energy consumption, optimise their operational efficiency and achieve their sustainability goals.
SensorFlow is a proptech that combines the use of Internet of Things (IoT) solutions and Artificial Intelligence (AI) to help hotels in Asia monitor, analyse and automate energy consumption for better productivity, sustainability and energy efficiency.
CEO and co-founder Saikrishnan, driven by the vision to mitigate global challenges, started SensorFlow with Max Pagel in 2016.
One of the youngest thought leaders in the region, Sai was part of the Entrepreneur First cohort, where he built the technical expertise to transform SensorFlow into a viable business model, scalable across different markets.
The company says that its solutions have delivered up to 30 per cent in energy savings and up to a 40 per cent reduction in maintenance costs.
Their solution offers not only heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) management but also real-time data insights on energy consumption, occupancy trends and guest behaviours.
It is a response to the pressing need for energy optimisation worldwide while enhancing the overall guest experience at room as well as at property levels.
Building managers get prompt alerts on faulty equipment enabling them to better manage the property. Housekeeping routes can also be optimised based on room occupancy data.
SensorFlow boasts retrofit solutions, which comprises sensors and proprietary networks that can be installed in less than 10 minutes per room and with no operational disruptions. Its pay-as-you-save model means there are no upfront costs, says the company.
