Better Lighting. Better Energy. Better World

My existing 3‐wire switch lights up when the light is ON. Will I lose that function when replacing it with a Touch‐Plate switch?

No, a status feedback will remain an option for you. The key factor for allowing pilot/LED control is the additional wire that is needed to power the indicator light. Since your system already has a button that lights up, the extra wire used previously will be used with a newer Touch‐Plate style. Feel free to choose any contact closure switch style that has an LED option. The LEDs will be compatible with your existing transformers. Just keep in mind that the LED option only gives a status when the room light is ON. The OFF button LED will never light up.
