Adderra: Adderra submetering system welcomes you, Chat GPT. Let’s talk about energy and water saving.

ChatGPT: With pleasure!


Adderra: According to statistics, a tourist or a renter spends 3-4 times more electricity and water than they do at home. This is especially true for 3-star hotels, where there is no keycard access, and electrical appliances are not automatically turned off when the guest leaves the room.

ChatGPT: Yes, that’s quite a typical situation. Tourists and renters staying in hotels and short-term rentals usually consume much more electricity and water than they do at home. There are several reasons explaining this difference:

1.       Absence of familiar constraints: In hotels or rental accommodations, people are often less careful with resource consumption as they don’t bear the direct cost of electricity and water bills. This can lead to more wasteful usage since guests may not be concerned about the expenses.

2.       Comfort and convenience: During vacations or temporary stays, tourists typically seek maximum comfort and amenities. They may use air conditioners, TVs, hair dryers, bathroom facilities more frequently, leading to increased energy consumption.

3.       Touristic infrastructure: In some places, the tourist infrastructure may be less energy-efficient and not focused on conservation. For example, older hotels might use outdated equipment and energy management systems.

4.       Incorrect usage: Some tourists might not be familiar with local customs and resource-saving practices, leading to inefficient resource use.


Adderra: What do you propose to do with it?

ChatGPT: To reduce electricity and water consumption in hotels and rental accommodations, you can take several measures:

·         Upgrade technologies: Implement modern energy management technologies, such as automatic shut-off of electrical appliances when guests leave the room.

·         Usage tracking systems: Introduce energy and water consumption tracking systems to make guests aware of their usage and encourage them to conserve resources.

·         Eco-friendly initiatives: Implement energy-saving programs and incentivize guests to conserve resources through various rewards and benefits.


Adderra: Our company ADD Grup has developed compact meters specifically designed for the submetering system, which are installed in each hotel room in addition to regular meters. They are used solely for settlements between the renter and the landlord.

ChatGPT: Excellent! The idea of creating compact meters for installation in each hotel room sounds interesting and can be practically useful for submetering systems in settlements between renters and landlords. Such meters can provide detailed information about the consumption of electricity and potentially other resources (such as water) in each individual room. Advantages of this system include:

·         Accurate tracking: The compact meters allow precise measurement of energy and water consumption for each client, leading to fair and transparent cost tracking.

·         Expense control: Renters can be more conscious of their electricity and water expenses, which can encourage them to be more resource-efficient.

·         Cost reduction: For landlords, this could serve as a useful tool to determine the actual expenses associated with providing services and resources in each room, ultimately optimizing costs.

·         Environmental responsibility: Increased transparency in resource usage can motivate both renters and landlords to adopt more environmentally responsible behavior.

However, it’s essential to consider some aspects:

Confidentiality: Since the meters will be installed in guests’ private spaces, ensuring adequate data protection and privacy measures is crucial to prevent potential breaches.

Compatibility: Ensure that the compact meters integrate smoothly with your existing submetering system and can reliably exchange information for settlements.

Reporting: Develop clear reporting procedures and transparency so that clients can easily review and verify their expenses.

Staff training: Provide training to hotel or rental property staff on how to work with the new system and its capabilities.


Adderra: Our system operates without any involvement of personnel.

ChatGPT: Great! A system that operates without the involvement of personnel makes it even more convenient and automated for both clients and landlords. This minimizes the need for hotel or rental property staff to intervene in the process of resource tracking and payment.

An autonomous system with compact meters can offer the following benefits:


Automated tracking: The system can automatically read and record data on resource consumption in each room without the need for manual intervention.

Accuracy and reliability: Without human involvement, the likelihood of errors in resource tracking decreases, providing more precise and trustworthy data.

Convenience for clients: Renters can monitor their resource consumption and adjust it if needed, promoting responsible and economical usage.

Time and resource savings: Eliminating the need for staff to service and read the meters allows you to save time and resources.

Environmental advantages: Reducing human involvement also contributes to saving paper and other resources, aligning with principles of environmental responsibility.

It is important to ensure the reliability and security of the autonomous system. Regular software updates and monitoring of meter performance will help prevent potential issues or data transmission problems.

An automated system with compact meters represents an effective solution for settlements between renters and landlords, streamlining resource tracking and payment and promoting energy and water conservation.
