I read that the Presence Sensor P1 has a mode that allows you to never turn off the air conditioning during the night.

However, if the guest sleeps in the afternoon, is there a risk that the air conditioning will be turned off because he can't see anyone moving?

Thank you

The presence sensor can work in various modes.

To definitively solve this type of problem and completely eliminate the possibility that the air conditioning is turned off by mistake while the guest is still in the apartment, simply set P1 Occupancy Sensor to APARTMENT mode, which is also the default mode of the P1 presence sensor.

In this mode, the Occupancy Sensor P1 will remain ┬źdormant┬╗ waiting to receive information from the sensor mounted on the apartment entrance door. When someone opens and closes the door to enter the apartment, Occupancy Sensor P1 is activated and monitors the room in which it is installed for the established observation time. During this time, if Occupancy Sensor P1 detects movement within its control range, it leaves the air conditioner on and no longer intervenes to turn it off. This remains until there is a new change of condition on the sensor mounted at the door; in fact, when someone leaves the apartment and closes the door again, if Occupancy Sensor P1 detects no more movement for the set observation time, it deduces that the apartment is empty and turns the air conditioner off as soon as the observation time expires. (note: you can set the observation time by choosing between 5, 15, 30 or 60 minutes.)

In this way, even if the guest sleeps during the afternoon, you will be sure that the air conditioning will never be turned off, precisely because until the guest leaves the apartment, the air conditioning will be free to function. continuously.

As you can see, we have thought of every eventuality.

This is why we are the no. choice. 1 of many hotels and B&Bs worldwide.
