Its more than just a light switch. The TAP range is a collection of contemporary modern switch plates for use with 24V home automation systems.

Each switch plate uses touch sensors with vibration feedback to control your home and temperature sensors are built in as standard. We believe that knowing the temperature of each room is the key to an energy efficient smart home.

Keep it simple. The TAP-1 is perfect for those rooms where lighting and heating control is all you need.

We are very proud of our finishes which are engineered to precision with a finger proof coating and the ability to be engraved to further customise the switch (engraving metallic only).

The TAP Range can be wired in two ways, it can either be connected to the Loxone Tree bus using the Nano DI Tree module, or it can be connected directly to the digital inputs of the Loxone Miniserver. See below for links to both wiring diagrams.

The TAP range is packed full of features:

- Large defined capacitive touch buttons
- Compatible with Loxone's single/double/triple click/long press
- Haptic vibration upon touch
- Rotary and laser engravable (metallic finishes only)
- UV stable plastic with finger proof coating
- Low profile design
- Built in 1-Wire temperature sensor
- 1 (TAP1) / 5 (TAP5) * 24V digital outputs
- Integrated test points
- Push-fit connectors
- CE and RoSH compliant
Compatible with a single gang UK and EU backboxes (please select variant using drop down during ordering)
- 2 x 25mm electrical screws included (For UK backboxes only, EU backboxes typically come with screws included)

EU & UK Backboxes

As of 1st May 2018, the Faradite TAP range is available for both UK and EU backboxes. Please ensure you select the right option for your country when ordering by using the drop down box.

By utilising the recessed screw lugs in UK backboxes we are able to offer a slimmer design for the UK. The EU TAP range is thicker due to a spacer that gets fitted on the back of the plate during installation. If the EU option is selected we will ship you the switch plate and the EU adaptor.

If the look of the EU TAP range is desired in the UK market, then the EU range also fits perfectly on UK backboxes.
