Resene SmartTouch

Resene SmartTouch is a conductive coating which can be used to switch lights on and off with a series of taps. Simply apply basecoats of Resene SmartTouch conductive coating, connect into the switch plate and overcoat with your chosen Resene topcoats or wallpaper.

Key Features
  • Switching operations performed by a unique series of touch sequences on the coated surface
  • Compatible with Resene topcoats or wallpaper
  • Ideal for trafficable areas where lighting may be needed at night to easily and safely move around an area
  • Handy in open plan areas with multiple sets of lighting
  • Ability to coat large parts of the wall makes it suitable for those with mobility or physical limitations, such as children and the elderly
Scope of Use

Resene SmartTouch is designed for interior use. Ideal for areas such as hallways, open plan living, garages and bedrooms.

Suitable where there are mobility limitations: the basecoat coating can cover large parts of a wall to enable tall and short, young and old to turn on the lights, even if they can't easily reach the light switch. The light switch can then be placed in a less conspicuous area.

Once overcoated, Resene SmartTouch is not visible, so the wall looks like a normal wall.

Limitations on Use

Resene SmartTouch is designed for use on an area of an interior wall or space. It is recommended that it be applied to the area that is likely to be used for turning lights on and off. On most walls this will likely mean a wide horizontal band of Resene SmartTouch leading away from the light switch. Resene SmartTouch is not designed to coat every surface of an interior in full as this will effect the tapping on and off effect.
