Electric Mirror® Awarded Patent for Keen™ Technology, Dimmable Mirror Invention

EVERETT, WA--(Marketwired - March 03, 2015) - The United States Patent and Trademark Office granted Electric Mirror® patent US 8,835,789 B2 for its invention of Keen™ Technology.

Keen™ is an energy-saving, environmentally-friendly technology that can be incorporated into any of Electric Mirror's Lighted Mirrors. Keen™ has three capacitive touch buttons that give hotel guest full control over eight light dimming settings, including a Night Light. Keen™ has an intelligent sensor that causes the mirror to automatically dim after being on for one hour, offering almost a 60% reduction in lighted mirror energy costs. 

Officially titled, "Apparatuses And Methods For Using A Capacitive Touch Controller With A Conductive Surface," the recently awarded patent was filed in 2011, and now represents a welcome addition to Electric Mirror's lighted mirror patent portfolio.

"Innovation is paramount to us at Electric Mirror®," said Jim Mischel Jr., Electric Mirror® President and CEO. "Our priority is to provide the best Lighted Mirrors and Mirror TV technology in the world. Keen's patent, like many of our others, represents a tremendous amount of engineering work, man hours, capital, and lastly, and maybe most importantly, jobs here in America."

Keen™ Technology, when added to any of the company's Lighted Mirrors, can save hotels thousands of dollars a year in lighted mirror energy costs. "In addition to energy savings, hotel owners love Keen™ for its functionality," said Jon Johnston, Electric Mirror® Senior Vice President. "Guests are blown away by having the ability to control the light level of their mirror with a simple touch."
