Ideal for hospitals, hotels, long term care facilities, public spaces, public washrooms, medical clinics, offices, technology clean rooms, laboratories, homes and more, Banvil 2000’s Touchless e-Motion lighting control prevents the accumulation of dirt and transfer of germs.

The e-Motion gesture switch is an intelligent, touchless, multi-function light control switch that reacts only to the intent of the user and ignores random movement, unlike passive motion switches popularized in the past 20 years that react to random movement, whether intentional or not, and can go off when the light is still needed. The e-Motion gesture switch enables users to quickly and easily turn lights on or off, and manipulate dimmer settings without making contact with the switch. Its finely calibrated dimming function works with most advanced LED light bulbs to ensure that users reap the full benefit of this innovation in all areas of workplace lighting.

In the busy workplace or public facility, it is common to see an accumulation of dirt on light switches and the wall area surrounding the switch. The touchless gesture controlled e-Motion is an attractive solution to that problem, but more importantly it also eliminates the transfer of germs that pose a serious health risk to users.

Whether for task lighting, global room lighting, or aesthetic decor lighting, the e-Motion smart switch is suitable for use in any commercial environment. The e-Motion dimmer functionality is more accurate than current switches on the market and has an elegant led display to see the exact light level that is set. Gesture controlled lighting leaves passive motion switches far behind and adds practical value and style to a safe and healthy work or public space.

Active Saver automated energy savings with auto-off setting. Fits standard electrical switch boxes and accommodates any rocker switch designer face plate.

Government of CanadaTo help Canadians and businesses get through these tough economic times, the Government is proposing to introduce a wage subsidy of 75 per cent for qualifying businesses, for up to 3 months, retroactive to March 15, 2020.

This measure, which is a part of the Government of Canada’s COVID-19 Economic Response Plan, would support businesses that are hardest hit by the COVID-19 pandemic and would help protect the jobs Canadians depend on during these difficult times.
