Colorado vNet introduces revolutionary control touchpad

Colorado vNet is the first in the home automation industry to introduce a revolutionary new device that redefines the way homeowners interact with their automation system.

Sleek, stylish and contemporary, the new Touchpad is set to become the industry standard replacement for light switches, dimmers and keypads.


Using capacitive technology Colorado vNet has been able to replace multiple products with a single automation control device that is user -configurable to offer anything from one to eight buttons.

Since the device has no mechanical parts or traditional keypad buttons, a fingertip touched to the plastic surface operates the button. The 'feel' of the touchpad is described by users as infinitely more modern and satisfying than previous keypads.

A key attribute of capacitive technology is that it can react to the duration of the touch. A single tap can switch lights on and off, control a motor (for instance, drapes, ceiling fans and pool covers) or control a pre -programmed scene comprising multiple control functions. A longer touch can slew lights up and down, eliminating the need for multiple buttons to control related functions. Discreet LEDs and audible feedback assure the user that their commands have been implemented.

The Touchpad features customizable background graphics and labels, and can be fitted either vertically or horizontally within a standard Decora plate. The washable plastic cover is virtually impervious to wear, and the unit is extremely durable due to containing no mechanical parts. It also features a backlight which reacts to ambient lighting to provide the appropriate backlighting level for any situation.

Colorado vNet's Touchpad (TP1 -1D) debuts at the CEDIA Expo, September 7th to 11th in Indianapolis. To locate a dealer near you, please contact Colorado vNet, 255 East Sixth Street, Loveland, CO 80537. Call (P) 970.203.3700 or visit www.coloradovnet.com.
