Hotel management systems

Oracle MICROS Fidelio/Opera

Certified interface, with the following functions:
  • Guest In/Out/GuestDataChange with room change
  • Guest Message handling online/on request
  • Room Equipment/Room maid status/Do not Disturb

The NETx BMS Platform allows the combination of data from different systems e.g. hotel management and door lock systems. Therefore respectable potential savings can be realized. Using the check in/check out information from the hotel management system the HVAC system of a hotel room can be controlled. You can use the check in signal to controll the air-conditioning of booked rooms or start the comfort mode. On the other hand the check out signal can be used to deactivate the HVAC system or change to standby mode. For MICROS Opera PMS V5 or higher, MICROS-Fidelio Suite 8.8 or higher, Fidelio FO 6.20, Fidelio Suite 7.13

 

Protel

Additonally to the MICROS Fidelio/Opera interface a Protel interface is available for the NETx BMS Platform. This interface allows an exchange of information between the Server and Protel.

Door lock systems

VingCard

The NETx BMS Platform is able to connect to the VisiOnline Server Software. The following events can be retrieved: Guest entrance (including the card number), staff entrance, inside open, deadbolt thrown, deadbolt released.
All events are available as data points in the NETx BMS Platform and can be further processed with other technologies like KNX, BACnet, Modbus, SNMP, MICROS Fidelio/Opera, ...

 

Kaba

Kaba door locks are using a wireless communication protocol which is based on ZigBee. In order to retrieve information like door events, ZigBee/IP hubs are required. These hubs are provided by Kaba and have the aim to translate ZigBee packets into IP packets for the local area network (LAN). Depending on the project multiple ZigBee hubs are needed.
The events are centrally collected by the Kaba server software. This software package provides an interface called Messenger LENS web service interface. This interface provides the opportunity to send events via push notification to third-party software. This means that the Kaba software (web service client) sends web service requests to our NETx BMS Platform (web service server). The interface itself uses SOAP based web services.

 

Salto

Salto door locks are using a wireless communication protocol which is based on ZigBee. In order to retrieve information like door events, ZigBee/IP gateways are required. These gateways are provided by Salto and have the aim to translate ZigBee packets into IP packets for the local area network (LAN). Depending on the project multiple ZigBee gateways are needed.
The events are centrally collected by the Salto server software. This software package provides an interface called Salto Event Stream. This interface provides the opportunity to send events via push notification to third-party software. This means that the Salto software (TCP client) sends TCP/IP packets to our NETx BMS Platform (TCP server).

HTTP Server and other Web Service Gateways

For integration of web content from HTTP servers. The NETx BMS Platform acts as HTTP client.
