VDA for JA Lake View

Our scope included the supply, installation, testing & commissioning of VDA Guest Room Management System for 348 Rooms based on low voltage Modbus protocol technology, Access Control System including Back of House Area & VDA’s HD Interactive PowerTV ONAIR System for 489 TV points based on Boxless Solution.

Micromaster from VDA is a simple to use and simply installed set of room environment management tools that allows a Hotel to efficiently micro-manage all of the room facilities whilst providing increased guest satisfaction and providing substantial savings in energy and labour costs for the hotel.

VDA implemented for JA Lake View Resort an integration between our GRMS, Interactive TV and Amazone Alexa, seamlessly enabled by Volara’s Voice Hub. This project is a milestone, exstending the way guests can interface with technology through voice control.

Key Features of VDA GRMS System: –

  • Award Winning Vitrum Design Face Plates with customizable text and icons
  • Option to automate the rooms with integrated design Solutions making the rooms and Hotel “SMART”.

The proposed offer provides an intelligent room controller unit in each-room – regardless of the type of room, to achieve the control of Air conditioning / Lights and the in-room devices which posses’ connectivity to the Room Management System.


The Client/Operator and the air-con will also reach a set point asprogrammed locally or from the server.

The system allows each room to have their own independent temperature profile for every hour of every day for the entire year. Associated with this profile, it is also possible to set different ambient temperature as part of the energy conservation program.

The system is sufficiently intelligent to increase the ambient temperature to the desirable comfort level using the most energy efficient method within the time available.

On a management perspective it is possible to manage all of the control switches connected to the guest room management system which can be managed /monitored per room or either as a group. The central control unit uses a simple graphical user interface to manage the software features. For each software function, the information can be displayed using a series of plans showing all rooms, a floor or even a single room. Icons are used to simplify the information.

Through the ready integration with Property Management system (PMS), the Systempresents real time information to employees from the reception/administration to notify them of various In-Room occurrences: the presence of a customer; the triggering of the Do not Disturb function, an Alarm from the bathroom, and when ‘The room is ready’ for housekeeping. This information will enable employees to react in a more efficient manner.

The RMS also provides multiple options for Interfacing with third party systems like Card Access system and PMS within the property on an IP platform.

The RMS Central Control Unit records all system activity. The information can be displayed and printed upon request. All alarms and malfunctions are instantly displayed in an obvious way on all screens containing the Micro master guest room management software.

A room access must be recorded by all types of personnel and any lost key must be blocked from use without visiting each lock. Since it’s an ON-LINE system where many categories of Keys can be enabled (Guest, Maintenance Personnel, Director, Housekeeping) and automatically tracked. Any un-authorized entry is immediately indicated with an alarm.
