Benefits: Why do hotels need a cigarette smoke detector?

Cigarette smoke detectors are crucial for hotels as smoking incidents are often challenging to manage due to the lack of evidence. Implementing a device like Sentry is essential to deter smoking, proactively handle incidents as they occur, and be properly equipped with detailed reports and evidence for post-incident resolution, ensuring comprehensive management of smoking-related issues. Let’s dive into some key benefits:

Additional Revenue Generation: By effectively detecting and documenting smoking incidents, hotels can enforce smoking policy fees with confidence, thereby generating additional revenue streams.

Smoking incidents can result in a additional revenue potential of $2,500-$5,000 per room, per year

Increased Chargeback Success: Sentry seamlessly generates detailed reports, SmokeSignal Verified Reports, fortified with strong evidence, to bolster chargeback success rates.

Reduced Customer Complaints: With WYND Sentry in place, hotels can significantly decrease customer complaints related to smoking disturbances. Guests can enjoy a smoke-free environment, leading to higher satisfaction rates and positive reviews.

Prevention of Property Damage: Smoking-related damages, such as lingering odors and stains, can be costly for hotels in terms of additional cleaning and loss of revenue due to room downtime. WYND Sentry helps prevent such damages by deterring smoking violations and enabling prompt intervention when incidents occur.

Improved Operational Efficiency: With WYND Sentry's real-time monitoring and automated alerts, hotels can proactively address smoking and noise incidents, reducing the need for manual intervention and minimizing disruptions to operations.

Regulatory Compliance: Some states mandate the installation of cigarette detectors, noise detectors, or both in hospitality establishments. WYND Sentry stands out as the sole device capable of detecting both recreational smoke and noise. Furthermore, it is the only recreational smoking detector that identifies three types of recreational smoking: cigarette, marijuana, and vape, ensuring full compliance with regulatory requirements.
