Hogar Controls says the Prima Touch Switches can be installed in under five minutes as a retrofit with existing wiring.

Voice commands might be a trendy option these days, but elegant wall-mounted devices can still elevate today’s smart home with aesthetically satisfying and streamlined controls.

Toward this end, smart home and building automation provider Hogar Controls launched the Prima Touch Switch collection of multifunction, modular, capacitive touch switches at CES 2020 in Las Vegas.

Incorporating a 3-inch glass design, Prima switches come in single-, double-, triple-, and quad-button configurations for on/off, dimming, and scene control of Z-Wave and ZigBee smart home devices.

Users can install up to four touch switches in a four-gang light box can be installed using existing wiring, producing up to 16 scene actions including lights, comfort, entertainment, security and more.

Hogar Controls says the Prima Touch Switch series was developed to challenge “every perception of what a smart lighting device looks like in the home, hotel room or commercial environment,” according to the announcement.

The sleek elements blend style with technology, sure to satisfy the demands of both interior designers and end users.

Owners and integrators can enlist the programmable buttons to set custom lighting and control actions, from simple lights dimming to scenes that engage multiple smart devices — shades, sensors, security, climate, etc. — the company notes in the announcement.

Besides the simplicity of controls, Hogar points out the simplicity of retrofit installation and claims the stylish Prima solution installs in under five minutes per location.
