The Modern Times Hotel with its sleek contemporary design and original decoration is situated between the lake and mountains at the heart of the Vaudois Riviera. It is a 4 star establishments, and its proximity to «Chaplin's World by Grévin». This hotel has met the requirement of both business or vacation stays. The hotel has fine restaurant, bar, rooms, junior suites and also rooms for seminars and banquets.
The system objective is to meet the EN54 certified, and have the ability to distributed background music at the same time. The another request from hotel is to have a separate audio system for seminar and banquet rooms.
For the voice alarm solution, we have installed the IDA8 PA/VA system, DPAfour amplifier, PSS-AS paging console for 7 configurable paging zones and with an EVAC button for each or for all zones. The music sources can also be selected by PSS-AS console. The IDA8 matrix is connected to the KNX management system which is used in the whole hotel and the background music is selected over KNX. The IDA8 system is connected to the Fire Alarm system, but the evacuation can be started also manually from one deported security push button. For the Seminar and Banquets rooms, we provide a solution with UAP G2 8x8 matrix audio processor. Both the IDA8 and UAP G2 systems can communicate with each other. During the evacuation, the background music will be stopped, then start to play the EVAC message automatically. The loudspeakers we installed are from our brand PENTON.
