About 3 years ago, Savant purchased LiteTouch to add lighting control systems to their product offering. Unfortunately for LiteTouch customers, Savant immediately discontinued and stopped supporting legacy LiteTouch keypads.
The product discontinuation put many LiteTouch consumers in a bind when they needed replacement parts or system upgrades. Worsening the situation, Savant eventually shut down manufacturing of all LiteTouch products.

Recently, Lutron has announced a replacement solution. Our engineers have reviewed the
Lutron solution and not only is it untested but the reliability is also questionable.
The dBTronix engineers find the Lutron solution inferior to the Vantage product. One simple reason the Luton solution is inferior is that it requires additional wiring, infrastructure and the
installation of additional hardware.
The Vantage solution we recommend uses the existing wiring and infostructure. The Vantage system is also a tried and true system which is why we highly recommend it as the solution of choice for homeowners affected by this situation.
LiteTouch Conversion Program
Fortunately, dBTronix has a LiteTouch conversion program using the Vantage Infusion LiteTouch Retrofit Insert that will salvage your investment in the infrastructure of the LiteTouch lighting system which is now defunct.
