Cosgroves

MiPad Hotel

The project 

New 5 storey, 57 guest room, hotel located in central Queenstown.  The hotel is known as New Zealand’s first smart hotel, guests can download an App on their smart phone and the phone can then be used for room entry, control of room lighting and air conditioning, ‘do not disturb’ and ‘make up my room’ functions, check in and check out, and access to in room entertainment and communications.

our role

Cosgroves were the Electrical Engineering consultants forthis project. A key challenge for the project was integrating the technology installed within the Hotel with the App, this required close liaison between ourselves and the App developer.  The lighting control system, building management system and access control system all had to be designed and be interfaced with each other and the IT systems.

The hotel has been very well received by the market, and the technology installed is very popular with guests.  The ease of being able to check in and go straight to your room, bypassing reception, is a great benefit and the ‘Mia’ App has provided the guest with full control of their Mi-Pad experience.
