At first look, Deseo is a beautiful intelligent thermostat. But in fact, Deseo is much more than just a thermostat.

Discrete and minimalistic, Deseo offers a simple and innovative user interface. Highly sensitive touch sensors allow you to navigate through all the functions in a room. Lights, scenes, shutters and blinds, even the multi-room audio system can be controlled at the slightest touch.

We call it a room controller.

This innovative concept allows light switches in a room to remain simple and to control only the most important functionalities. All other, less important functions can be controlled with Deseo.

And as with Sentido, a simple multi-touch will start a welcome or goodbye scene.

Deseo, because we like to keep things simple.




Mona is a sensual light switch with a finely drawn geometric stylistic design. Harmoniously it seems to melt into the wall. With its simple, architectural shape it blends in easily with any style.

Mona features a touch-sensitive surface allowing comfortable and elegant handling.

In switched-off position, the internal LED illuminates the light switch with a softly shimmering ring.



Sentido, the light switch reinvented. Sentido is very simple, yet very innovative. The entire switch is touch-sensitive, creating a very easy and unique way of control.

Every surface controls different functions, but touching more than one surface at the same time turns on and off all the lights in a room using a 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.

The internal temperature sensor discretely reports the room temperature to the home automation system while the integrated thermostat logic controls the heating and air-conditioning of the room.

The multicolour LED backlight can be used for status feedback or simply to light up Sentido in the dark. Using the integrated RGB sequencer in combination with multi-touch allows controlling RGB lights in a very simple and intuitive way.



Enzo offers the same unique and innovative functionalities as the touch-sensitive switch Sentido.

Inspired by Italian design of the late fifties, Enzo combines retro with luxury based on craftsmanship and high-quality materials.

The fine rounded border is made of polished aluminium while the inlay can be leather or glass.

Despite its retro look, Enzo uses the latest technology and features highly sensitive touch sensors, multi-touch capability and temperature control.

The integrated multicolour LED backlight makes Enzo visible in the dark and can also be used for status feedback.



As a single function switch, Tacto switches or dims lights and controls scenes and blinds at the slightest touch. The entire surface is touch-sensitive, creating a unique user experience.

Intelligent functions allow scene selection and the control of RGB lights in a simple and intuitive way.


Auro is everything what a motion detector should be:
small, fast and almost invisible



When mounted in the ceiling, the innovative flat design makes Auro completely blend in. Only requiring an opening of 44mm, it is very easy to install.

Auro has a built in light sensor for light dependent switching, dimming and controlling scenes and can even behave differently during day or night.

The internal temperature sensor discretely reports the room temperature to the home automation system while it can also be used to trigger a heat alarm in case of a fire.

With a vertical detection angle of 90° it has a detection area with a diameter of 5m when installed at a height of 2.5m, making it perfect for hallways, toilets and small rooms.
