Retrotouch - The Leader in Home Automation

As the demand for home automation continues to grow, Retrotouch will continue to be a leader in the lighting automation and light switch industry. By providing innovative products and solutions, we will deliver tomorrow’s lifestyle… today. Through continuous research, functional developments, new materials and fresh ideas, the Retrotouch brand stands for quality, high performance and durability in lighting solutions and home automation.

For Retrotouch founders Amit Ravat and Wesley Siu, it’s the little things that make a huge difference. Since the invention of the light bulb, switches and sockets have been treated as an afterthought in home decoration. But as the first thing we look for when we get in, and the last thing we use before we go to bed, having high quality yet affordable fittings is something that all home-owners deserve. .

Our Ethos 

Amit and Wesley’s paths crossed while working together at Dualit Limited in 2007, and the two quickly discovered their mutual interest in the fusion of design and technology. This meeting of minds culminated in the creation of Retrotouch, and a huge range of products that injected style and comfort into people’s lifestyles. The company set out to provide elegant, tactile and accessible fittings while utilising the latest smart technologies.

It can be difficult when renovating to find switches and sockets that meet your expectations. Amit found this when he moved house and found all switches and sockets on the market to miss the mark in terms of design quality and overall feel. With most people having to make do with flimsy plastic and unsightly metal switches, it fuelled a desire to create a range of products that provide a top of the range feel at an accessible price.

With Wesley specialising in the design aspects and Amit providing the marketing expertise, the two developed and expanded the Retrotouch catalogue to cover a huge range of switches and sockets. From a standard 2 gang socket all the way to cooker switches, Retrotouch provides a consistent quality for those looking to refurbish their interior.

Always with their fingers on the pulse of the latest technologies, Amit and Wesley are continually looking to introduce new innovations into their products. A great example is the refinement of the Simplicity range, which now includes a fingerprint resistant finish and interchangeable covers. The pair are also keen audiophiles, with sister company Lithe Audio established to provide a fantastic range of wireless ceiling speakers.

Always listening the needs of consumers, our products always aim to help people enjoy comfortable, carefree lifestyles. And with such elegant and timeless designs in our range,  let Retrotouch turn on the style in your home.
