Hi,
I'm thinking of starting a business where I promote to hotels a key card system that requires the guest to insert key card into a slot to turn the electricity on.

However, I'm not an electrician so I don't know how easy/hard it is for the hotel to install these devices.
Could someone tell me how much effort would be required to install these devices. Ideally, I like to install it so that it leaves certain appliances still on e.g. mini bar and some power point.

Interestingly, the IECC actually requires this. I am aware, however, of NO major hotel chains that retrofit these into existing properties. It is, however, somewhat of a standard feature in new builds and MAJOR remodels. What you have to remember is that most properties are independently 'Patel' owned, and repairs and upgrades are almost never done unless the franchise strongarms them. I really don't see this as a viable business pursuit.
