Football World Cup and Technology in Qatar
While it may seem that the 2022 World Cup in Qatar is still far away, it is not. Qatar does not want to underestimate anything, so preparations are in full swing. Marriott Marquis and Merweb hotels in the capital of Doha are no exception to this. These two luxury hotels have recently undergone modernization, which included work by the ELKO EP Company – the manufacturer of INELS, intelligent electrical installations.
The 2018 World Cup in Moscow is past. But in Qatar the word "football" is starting to be heard more and more often. The whole country is preparing for this major sporting event, and besides the sports grounds themselves, the hotel and restaurant facilities are also preparing for fans from around the world.
These include two five-star hotels in Doha - Marriott Marquis and Merweb. Both have undergone modernization in the past year. To improve customer service, the hotels have installed the iNELS RF Control wireless system with one of their system partners. In each room, four wireless switches of the glass design were printed with icons depicting the controlled devices (bedside light, main light and more).
With the recommendation of iNELS, the hotels have also used the central control function, or MASTER OFF / ON button, which switches all devices off with just one push, leading to greater savings and comfort. Thanks to the interaction of the door and motion detector, all the lights are switched off by the central lighting control unit after leaving the room and there are considerable cost savings to be made.
INELS Wireless Retrofit Solutions is advantageous because of its convenient installation. It takes no longer than 25 minutes in one room, which meant that no room was required to be closed during the reconstruction. They were all fully operational and the hotel did not lose money because of vacancies. At the same time, guests' comfort was increased considerably.
