Create a simple and intuitive interface for controlling home comfort settings.

Intuitive flat-screen displays feature buttons and dials with haptic definition and feedback.

On thermal controls in the home, haptics can be used to replace mechanical dials to digitize the device and eliminate mechanical components. For example, haptics applied to the flat-screen touch panel provides the sensation of pushing physical buttons or feeling the clicks to adjust temperature; tactile feedback confirms each action. The design can be simpler and easily modified through software. As users are scrolling through multiple menus, the haptic buttons can be anywhere on the screen.
