The Wynn Las Vegas is surrounded by other lavish properties on the Strip, each of which attempts to one-up the other with trendy shows, world-class restaurants, dazzling art and luxury accommodations…not to mention the actual hotel rooms.
High-tech arms races have recently dictated in-room control of audio, video, motorized shades, lights, thermostats, room service and other niceties for guests.
City Center Las Vegas recently opened down the street from the Wynn, with two hotels featuring in-room amenities from Control4. Crestron automation automation graces high-end suites at the MGM and elsewhere. And other leading brands provide automated amenities up and down the strip.
So when the Wynn decided to renovate its five-year-old property, you’d think the hotel would invite a major automation brand into its refurbished guest rooms. Instead, it focused on simplicity.
Wynn selected Evolve Guest Controls for the job. Founded in 2008, Evolve Guest Controls sprang from Mason Contract Products, LLC, an established manufacturer of bedding, window treatments and motorization for the hospitality industry.

Each room at the Wynn is outfitted with automated light switches, plug-in modules, a smart thermostat, wall-mounted and tabletop LCD controllers (offering seven languages) and a relay module for operating the existing motorized drapes, sheers and doorbell. An external door station is provided for housekeeping and privacy controls.
The Wynn was on a tight schedule for the hotel remodel, so it needed a solution that could be installed quickly and effectively by its own electricians. Evolve’s answer was to pre-program the devices for each Wynn room, hand off the systems to the Wynn electricians and provide on-site supervision.
