Basalte’s Sentido Might be the Best Looking Light Switch, Ever

basalte-lightswitch-1015Sentido is an elegant keypad with a European design that we think is the best looking light switch ever. This touch-sensitive light switch integrates with Lutron Homeworks QS and uses metal finishes in combination with the advanced touch technology offer a haptic experience. The square-shaped light switch is divided into two or four equal surfaces, each surface with its different functions.

Both versions of the Sentido are available in various finishes including brushed aluminum, brushed black, brushed grey, satin white or the classic series bronze, fer forgé, brushed brass and brushed nickel. The entire switch is touch-sensitive creating an easy way of control and a unique user experience. Touching more than one surface at the same time turns on and off all the lights in a room using a general scene. This multi-touch function makes light control more user-friendly.

Touching multi-touch for a longer period starts a unique scene sequencer function, which allows selecting up to four additional scenes. This intelligent light switch also has an internal temperature sensor that discretely reports the room temperature to any home automation system. And, a multi-color LED backlight can be used for status feedback or simply to light up Sentido in the dark.
