The Belgian company Basalte introduces Sentido, an elegant and innovative keypad with a sleek European design that brings light switches to enter a new era.

This intelligent touch-sensitive light switch integrates with smart home systems like Crestron and Lutron. The high-grade metal finishes in combination with the advanced touch technology offer an unequalled haptic experience.

This square-shaped light switch is divided into two or four equal surfaces, each surface with its different functions. Both types of Sentido exist in various finishes such as 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 highly intuitive and user friendly. Touching multi-touch for a longer period starts the 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 the home automation system. The multicolor LED backlight can be used for status feedback or simply to light up Sentido in the dark. Thanks to its sleek and sophisticated design, its different finishes and its refined look, Sentido blends easily in every architectural style.
