Project Site

  • Kowloon


EVG's goal was to upgrade Open University’s traditional hotel mockup room to a smart hotel room with comprehensive automation.

  • Demonstrate the latest room control technologies with full app integration; all devices and systems are centralized in a single platform and can be controlled individually or combined into different scene settings

  • Adopt existing fit-out without replacing lighting fixtures, A/C system, TV system, glass wall and windows

Scope of Work

  • Replaced original light switch with Z-Wave wireless switches

  • Replaced thermostat with a WiFi controllable one

  • Adhered switchable film on existing glass wall to control the opacity

  • Replaced manual blinds with electrical ones that are controlled with Z-Wave wireless curtain controller

  • Integrated smart light bulbs to build up mood lighting

  • Integrated with smart TV to play different contents from the internet

  • Comprehensive control of all devices and systems with the Control Free App

  • Integrated Google Home system by using "Control Free Direct" (Works with Google service)

  • Controllers utilizes the hotel's existing wifi; no installation of new cables is required

  • No server is required on-site, a tiny smart hub is used to connect all devices and systems

  • User can control the smart hotel room through iPad App, Voice control or a wireless switch for different scenes

  • All devices inside the room are controllable by natural voice commands

  • Control of all devices and systems is combined into a single platform

  • The system can be easily scaled up with the integration of new devices and controllers

  • Different sensors can also be added to further customize automation modes and scene settings based on evolving user preferences
