Verve™ Living Systems Unveils New Line of Hospitality Products

September 13, 2011

Taylor, Mich. (September 13, 2011) - Masco company Verve Living Systems, a revolutionary system that combines radio frequency and energy-harvesting technologies to offer wireless room controls for homes and building applications, has introduced a new line of energy-saving automation products developed specifically for the needs of the hospitality channel.

The Verve Living Systems product line for hospitality includes an assortment of sensors and control devices that can be combined to work together in an organic network to determine the occupancy state of the room, set back temperature, and turn off lights and miscellaneous electrical loads to help hotels manage energy costs.

The new portfolio of products uses highly efficient radio frequency technology in an attractively designed family of temperature and electrical load control devices. The portfolio features self-powered motion, contact and key card sensors to save energy without compromising the guest experience.

"With this launch, we are committed to creating affordable solutions that provide an effective return on investment to hotel owners and operators," said Dianne Pisarek, Verve president. "With fast, non-invasive installation and no ongoing maintenance costs, we're excited to showcase how Verve products enable customizable, scalable options for hotels of any size."

Verve sensors and controls are both self-powered and wireless, ensuring installation and set-up can be done with in-house resources. Rooms can typically be returned to inventory in under an hour, minimizing downtime. Because the devices are self-powered either by efficient, discrete solar technology or by kinetic energy harvesting, the need for periodic battery changes is eliminated and operational costs can be significantly reduced.
