Light Swapper / light control interface

Light Swapper
Light Swapper

The Light swapper is a new approach toward light control. It uses the touch interface: Just touch your finger onto the central line on the panel, and move the "light bar" along the central route. This way you can switch on or off the light. Whether the light is on or off, the symbol on the panel will indicate the current power mode. It does this by lighting up part of the route to form the classical "power symbol". When you want to move into another room, just pull the light bar across with you, it will "transfer" into the other light swapper panel. The Light swapper is located at the door frame, so you'll never miss it even in the dark.
