Using wireless technology, Verve Living Systems allows for automated climate control at home or in commercial environments. Eliminating the need for extensive wiring, the system allows modules to “talk” to lighting, HVAC, and other systems through radio signals at distances as great as 300 feet. Many of the products in the system use energy-harvesting technologies or photovoltaics to power themselves when transmitting radio signals. This means that they are wireless AND battery free! The Verve Living Systems are being used in Make It Right projects that Brad Pitt has developed in post-Katrina New Orleans.

Native Trails product line includes hammered copper vessels paired with reclaimed wood bath vanities for look that is both artisan and earth-friendly.

    It’s phenomenal to see the words of W. Clement Stone “Whatever the mind of man can conceive and believe, it can achieve,” in action. Hooray for green initiative!
