New colours and customisation options have been added to ABB tacteo, the award-winning KNX control element from ABB Smart Buildings to enable greater personalisation of the device. ABB tacteo is designed for intelligent building management of luxury hotels, public buildings and high-end residential buildings.

Launched in 2018 and recognised with a number of accolades including Innovative Architecture in the prestigious Iconic Awards, ABB tacteo now comes with an extended range of colour choices and additional customisation options. Among the new personalisation features are 11 new colour finishes added to the original black glass and white glass designs; these include glass coral, glass avocado, glass purple, glass oyster, glass ocean, glass sun, glass rose, glass sand, glass stone, glass cloud and glass mocha.

New design-based configuration options now allow the user to personalise their device using their own brand icons, fonts and logos, which can be placed freely on the glass surface for a completely unique appearance.

Thorsten Mueller, Head of Global Product Group Building and Home Automation Solutions for ABB Smart Buildings said: “ABB tacteo is one of the most user-friendly KNX control elements on the market and offers an interior design-led aesthetic like no other. So that designers can continue to integrate these panels into their most iconic interiors, it is important that we develop our products to make them customisable and aesthetically flexible in line with evolving interior design trends.

“There are now 13 glass colours in the ABB tacteo portfolio, all available at the same price point. To further personalise the control panels, customers can choose to customise the ABB tacteo sensors with fonts, icons and logos, which is of particular importance to the luxury hotel industry and public buildings sector.”

The glass KNX sensors offer virtually unlimited possibilities for intelligent building networking. Functions such as heating, blinds, lighting or comfort scenes can be easily controlled from the user-friendly interface.
