Various energy-saving hotel room switches are presented in this section. Although energy-saving switches are not essential components of the access control system, they interact with it in terms of reading hotel keycards. A guest's keycard activates a switch and supplies power to the lights and selected sockets in the room.

It is a common situation when a guest or a hotel employee has left the lights on in a restroom, especially in the daytime. Some other sources of light that are also can be left on commonly include bedside lamps, floor lamps, bulbs in the corridor, etc. Using energy-saving switches eliminates idle energy consumption.
The service function of energy-saving switches is also an important aspect. We have described how the issue of lights left on can be easily solved. In addition, guests and employees can leave any room or area without thinking about what lights they need to turn off.
When leaving a room in the evening, a guest can just remove their keycard from the slot of the energy-saving switch (which is a convenient place to store the electronic card from the room at the same time) and the lights turn off in the whole room after a dozen of seconds that are enough to leave the hotel room without haste.
On returning to the room and inserting the card into the pocket of the switch, a guest can turn on exactly the lights that were on when the guest was about to leave. This increases the convenience for guests and, consequently, their comfort of staying at the hotel.
