The new and stylish programmable switch, called the Sentido by Basalte, redefines home lighting, allowing you to activate or de-activate multiple lights by the stroke of a finger. With a smooth and sensitive surface area, the switch keenly recognizes varying finger movements and instantly provides the requested function. Lights on/lights off has never been easier.
