Once the system is installed, simply touch the Resene SmartTouch Active Area on your walls or other surfaces to control lights connected to the Resene SmartTouch system.

Double-tap  -  Triple-tap  -  Tap-press

Unless changes to the default configuration have been requested, Double-Tap, like a mouse double click, will turn your lights on and off. If another set of lighting is connected then the second set is turned on and off with a Triple-Tap. Both lights can be switched on and off simultaneously using the Tap-Press Touch Command. When using the Press action, hold your hand on the wall until lights are activated. This will happen in a fraction of a second.

There is a short delay before light switching after entering a Touch Command. This is normal. The shorter the duration between the individual actions of a Touch Command, the shorter the delay. Part of the reason for the delay is that the system waits to check if more touches will be entered to distinguish between Double-Tap, Triple-Tap etc. There is also some checking going on to verify that signals are actual touches and not from another source.

Configuration options

Configuration is typically carried out by the installer, however if you wish to change settings then this can be achieved with the Installation App which can be downloaded from the Google Play or Apple app store.

  • Change the Touch Commands
  • Add/remove a timer
  • Change the system sensitivity

For instructions on using the app to make changes, see the built-in help files within the app or watch the Basic and Advanced App videos; see resources page.
