The Host, St Ives

The Host, St Ives

United Kingdom

The Host is a luxury boutique micro hotel in St Ives, Cornwall. Converted from a former bank, the building has been lovingly restored using traditional craftsmanship into a collection of luxury suites in the heart of the town.

Philip Payne emergency luminaires combined with the revolutionary Specto-XT lighting management system have been installed at the hotel. Specto-XT emergency luminaires test according to the schedule specified in BS EN 62034:2012 and display current status via a bi-colour LED.

Specto-XT uses the latest wireless mesh technology to replace wired communications signals between each luminaire. Luminaires are wirelessly linked into a Gateway which collects and transmits their status information to the World Wide Web for viewing using tablets, smart-phones, laptops and computers.

Mini cylinder luminaires, in a penny bronze finish, have been installed in the guest suites.  The ceiling mounted version has a short drop designed for conventional ceilings although factory adaptations are available to extend these to client requirements. In ornate high ceiling environments with the correct finish applied, this allows what becomes an unobtrusive item to be suspended into view to permit safe egress in an emergency situation. The standard wall mounted version comes with contemporary minimal arm extensions for recessed mounting.
