Now Available for FAS Power Pre-fabricated Electrical Assemblies – HS Series Card Key Switches
The HS Series Card Key Switch from WattStopper turns electrical circuits on or off when a card
key or HS-FOB Key Fob is inserted or removed from its slot. More code compliant than a simple
master wall switch, the HS Card Key Switch ensures that lights are off when the room is vacant. The
attractive, low profile switch features a backlit card key slot to provide visibility in darkened rooms and
a 30-second egress time delay. Plus, the HS Series Card Key Switch is available in five decorator
colors and one, two or three gang switch plate covers.
The HS-100 is a low voltage unit with a normally open and normally closed isolated relay, allowing it
to interface with third-party energy and lighting management control systems. The HS-150 is a line
voltage unit that serves as a master switch for a single guest room circuit. Both can use the same
card key that unlocks the door and are compliant with current requirements in both the IECC and
ANSI/ASHRAE/IESNA Standard 90.1.
HS Card Key Switches are ideal for guest rooms in hotels, motels, boarding houses, senior
residences or similar applications with guest rooms.
