At the launch, Saikrishnan Ranganathan (Sai), Chief Executive Officer (CEO) and Co-Founder of SensorFlow said, “Global energy demand is increasing year-on-year and buildings done account for almost half of global energy and carbon emissions. In particular, the tourism and hospitality sector accounts for 10% of global emissions, which has an alarming impacts on global warming. With our smart automation solution this affordable, non-disruptive solution would allow hoteliers to better manage and conserve energy for significant cost savings.”

With SensorFlow, hotels can save up to 30% in energy consumption by automating empty guestrooms and reducing unnecessary wastage. This is achieved using the state-of-the-art Internet of Things (IoT) technology which supports an interconnected network of devices to monitor hotel room environments in real-time, including, temperature, humidity, occupancy status and energy consumption. 



SensorFlow Artificial Intelligence (AI) software automatically increases the room temperature or switches off the air-conditioning to save energy as it detects when guests leave the room. The data collected us also accessible to hoteliers on a web-based analytics dashboard, which allows the remote control and management of all rooms. 



With live, constant data monitoring of the hotel’s Heat, Ventilation and Air-Conditioning (HVAC) system, hoteliers can move beyond reactive and even measure predictive maintenance strategies. The data collected is valuable and provides key insights and trends on room occupancy and guest behaviour, allowing hotels to optimise their housekeeping routes for zero guest disturbance and better plan on-site events and promotions for maximum guest spend all while enhancing the overall guest experience. 


SensorFlow’s unique profit-sharing model and wireless devices can be installed in under 10 minutes per room and hotels can easily retrofit the full solution at zero upfront cost with zero operational disruptions. Signed over 2,000 rooms across Vietnam, Thailand, Hong Kong and Singapore across Asia, it’s entry to the market is aligned with Malaysia’s sustainability reform agenda as Malaysia is emphasising on green growth and sustainable development as a top priority for 2019 and beyond.
