Project day 12

The partner sent the pre-made materials immediately after the first meeting to all participants of the session.

Preliminary control design

The partner gathers basic information about the project (location, standard room layout, luminaire types, and positions) and Mount Kelvin helps them create a preliminary proposal based on a standard room, desired features, and best practices.

The proposal includes the positions and types for luminaires, drivers, sensors, and switches as well as a bill of materials for all components.

icon

Desired outcome

The partner has provided the preliminary control design document to project stakeholders. The project has ordered the mock-up room delivery from the partner based on the preliminary design.

image
Project day 152

The electrical contractor of the hotel operator installed the components according to electrical plans and installation material provided by the partner.

Commissioning

The partner commissions the guest room devices with Mount Kelvin Assigner.

This includes remote discovery for all devices, creating device groups, pairing the switches, and copy-pasting the configurations based on the templates.

icon

Desired outcome

The gateway is online and guest room components have been successfully commissioned and are online.

image
Project day 183

The partner visited the construction site and walked through all of the rooms while commissioning the controllers, sensors, switches, and gateways into the network.
