ABB SmartTouch® 10” home automation device wins four prestigious global awards for design

  • 48 international jurors select ABB’s SmartTouch® 10” for coveted Red Dot Award for Product Design
  • Winner in the ‘Excellence in the Business to Consumer Smart Living’ category of the 2022 German Innovation Awards
  • Success in both the product and user interface design categories of the 2022 iF Design Awards

ABB SmartTouch 10”, the high-end touch panel from ABB that combines smart home automation and door communication in one easy to use device, has won three prestigious international design awards hot on the heels of its market launch later this summer.

The slim design of the ABB SmartTouch 10” features a 10-inch IPS screen, with a viewing angle of 75° in all directions, giving residents in homes, hotels, and commercial buildings optimal control. The entire building installation - from Wi-Fi cameras to lighting and temperature control - can all be managed and observed from the stylish and innovative device. With no need for an additional indoor station to operate ABB-Welcome, door communication can now be received simply via the touch screen or the matching application.

Olaf Quittmann, Global Product Manager explains, “We strive to bring building residents the very latest in innovation, quality, and convenience. We created SmartTouch 10” to bring together smart home functionalities like ABB-free@home® and ABB i-bus® KNX with door communication in one elegant device. We’re inspired that its merits are being recognized through these prestigious awards.”

A panel of 48 international jurors selected ABB SmartTouch 10” for the prestigious Red Dot Award for Product Design. Products from 60 countries were assessed professionally and individually, with only those recognised as demonstrating outstanding design quality awarded a distinction at the ceremony in Essen, in June. The jurors reported that 'this touch panel for smart home control convinces with both the high complexity of its functional range and a design that intelligently makes these features accessible’.

ABB SmartTouch 10” has also been named ‘Winner’ in the Excellence in the Business to Consumer Smart Living category of the 2022 German Innovation Awards, and has won both the product, and user interface design categories of the 2022 iF Design Awards.

The German Innovation Awards honor products and solutions that distinguish themselves primarily by their user centricity and added value compared to earlier solutions across all industrial sectors. More than 350 guests from 26 countries across industry, politics and the media attended the awards ceremony at the German Museum of Technology in Berlin, on 28 May 2022. The iF DESIGN AWARD has run since 1953. The iF seal signifies good design, for consumers and the design community.

The ABB SmartTouch 10” will be launched globally in September 2022.
