Say “hola” to Olé—the new interactive touchpad from Elan. Billed as the first in-wall Film Interactive Touchpad (FIT), this product could be one of the coolest controllers I’ve seen in a while.
With more than 1,500 design possibilities, the Olé offers an all-touch surface in a double-gang, in-wall controller. Photo-quality, backlit slide-in films in a variety of themes and colors can be custom-matched to seven different frame colors. Expect additional films to be added in future updates.
Choose between 13-, 17- and 25-function layouts ranging from simple to whole-house control.
The product ships with a standard film in three function layouts, and a white frame. Additional films and frames are sold separately.
- 1-inch, 65,000-color OLED
- Compatible with all Elan multiroom controllers
- 1,500 design possibilities
