Switch on with Resene SmartTouch

Traditionally all we expected paint to do was look good and protect the surface.

Project Description

Now it can do so much more, from reflecting U.V. light (Resene CoolColour), to providing a magnetic (Resene Magnetic Magic) or whiteboard surface (Resene Write-on Wall Paint) and absorbing unwanted toxins (Resene products, such as Resene SpaceCote Low Sheen, formulated with formaldehyde abatement technology).

With Resene SmartTouch, your paint can even turn on your lights!

Simply apply basecoats of Resene SmartTouch conductive coating, connect into the switch plate and overcoat with your choice of Resene topcoat or it can be wallpapered. Then tap to turn the lights on and off. Rather than trying to reach a small switch, your wall can become the switch. Ideal for areas such as hallways, open plan living, garages and bedrooms. No more stumbling around in the dark trying to find the light switch - simply tap the first part of the wall you touch to switch on the lights.

Resene SmartTouch is also handy where there are mobility limitations as the basecoat coating can cover large parts of the wall to enable tall and short, young and old to turn on the lights, even if they can’t easily reach the light switch.

Switching operations are performed by a unique series of touch sequences on the coated surface.

Resene recommends Resene SpaceCote as the topcoat for an easy clean surface.

Best of all, once the paint system is complete, the wall looks just like a normal wall. And if desired the switch plate can be placed in a more inconspicuous area as it will only be needed as a backup.
