The principle of operation of the touch panel for controlling smart home systems is the same as that of the screen of a modern smartphone, on which the application icons are located. Modern devices have:

  • functional menu that gives access to different zones;

  • compact housing;

  • clear, clearly distinguishable message text;

  • laconic design, combined with the design of switches and charging stations.

A typical representative of modern touch panels is the KNX Zennio Z35 model.
