Backed with KNX technology that offers some incredible functionality, the ORE switches are as technically astounding as they are aesthetically. With 5 different function types to choose from including switching, dimming, scenes, blinds, and advanced value sending data types, as well as an integrated temperature sensor and multi-tap options, this switch offers complete smart home control delivered in the most elegant of packages.

The RGB status feedback LEDs can be customised to respond to each touch of the sumptuous brass as well as indicating which scene is currently on, optimising the user experience. The notification LED feature allows the user to be notified of any key events in their homes. For example, a notification can be set for when someone has rung the doorbell or arrived at the gate.

We understand the requirement to be able to custom mark switch functions so TAP-5 ORE switches can be neatly, subtly marked whilst maintaining the elegant look of the switch. To further elevate your smart home interiors, matching wiring accessories in each of the four finishes are available from Focus SB.
