Have you ever tried to find a light switch in a dark room? Wouldn’t it be helpful if it were lighted so you could find it easily?! There are many benefits to backlighting a switch. It can highlight a button, provide reassurance a button was pushed or allow visibilty in dark areas (like that dark room where you’re trying to find the light switch)!
Ways to Use Backlighting on Switches
I’m going to share some ideas and applications for backlighting usage on switches. There are many other options, so make sure you share your ideas too.
- Add visibility to a light switch or other wall control switch
- Highlight a specific, important button – such as an emergency/nurse request button on a medical device
- Add various colors to different buttons to help differentiate functions
- Provide light to door access panels
- Use it to make a control asthetically pleasing – make it look good!
- Add it to devices frequently used at night or in low light – computers, keyboards, phones, and many other electronic devices
- Exterior panels and switches benefit from backlighting when access required at night
Backlighting can be applied in many ways to make a device or switch more visible and easy to use. A backlit membrane switch is created with woven fiber optic panels or flat fiber lighting. The way this is applied allows it to be customized to fit many needs. Do you have an idea? Or maybe you have a problem that you are looking to solve. Backlighting might be a solution.
