Dan's AC sensor override (VIP mode) instructions 
Most hotels in Hawaii have an Inncom thermostat. 
To enter VIP mode:
-While you are holding "display"
- Press "off", then
- Press "Up" arrow
-Then release "display"
You still can't open/close the balcony, (It still displays if the balcony is open or closed, but it lets the AC run while the balcony is open.)
 but the AC will run if you leave it open and you won't be trapped in your room.  Plus you can also set the AC to lower temps in VIP mode.

Ideas to enter hotel rooms with electronic locks
-Many like to just tape down the latch hole to ensure easy access  (simplest way is to tape the key card over the hole)
-some will just stuff the hole with tissues (you run the risk of it slipping out)
-others rely on the poskim who allow you to ask a goy (see above)
-exterior portable lock http://www.thexlock.com/
and then there's the best one yet
-Haven't tried it at a hotel but on a cruise I tied a gartel to the inside door handle and left a little sticking out the bottom of the door. I just had to pull the gartel and the door opened. :)

--- Quote from: moko on August 16, 2019, 02:22:26 PM ---many (most?) Single family homes dont have pumps , unless there a special circumstances or issue. Usually they rely on water pressure. There are cases where pumps are used in reverse such as if a toilet or shower is at or below the sewer line.

I was referring back to EY. Which has both as well but people don't realize to check which is what happened to me.

Hi all,
i wanted to go to Stamford for shabbos in December. I was going to stay at Holiday in Express in Stanford since I saw it listed as a shabbos friendly hotel on  hotels near shuls .com. however  when i called the hotel to comfirm I was told there is no way to enter the hotel without going thru electric automatic opening doors. anyway stay here and know if it is shabbos friendly.
