What should I set site type to?

Site Type Meanings

  1. Business (most common): This indicates the facility operates as a commercial property.
  2. Residential – This indicates the facility is a single family home.
  3. Hotel – This indicates the facility operates as a hotel and has a Pelican PMS Interface is installed. This would normally be a hotel where Pelican is installed in guest rooms, not just the common areas.

When should I set my Site Type to Hotel?

Setting a site as Hotel affect your subscription cost because it puts you into the Enhanced Subscription tear.

This is because in a Hotel, where Pelican is installed in the guest rooms and is connected to the hotel’s Property Management System (PMS), the solution adds an additional sequence that automatically save energy in hotel guest rooms when they are vacant. This automated logic has an additional subscription cost associated to it.

Note: If you are only using Pelican to control the common areas of the hotel (and not the guest rooms), you will want your site to be set to Business.
