Momentary touch sensor for a lamp

I'm working on building a lamp that I'm integrating a z-wave micro dimmer into, so that I can control it with my home automation system and everything is built into the lamp itself.

I also want to be able to make it work without automation. The micro dimmer module I'm using works with a momentary push button which can turn it of/on at a short press, or dim up/down with a press and hold. I'd like to use a touch sensor as a momentary push button, but so far I'm only finding dimmers, and a dimmer switch won't work with this application.

Can anyone recommend a touch sensor that acts as a momentary push button? The circuit it attaches to in the micro dimmer is a low-voltage circuit, so pretty much any touch sensor switch that acts as a momentary button would do.

Thanks in advance.
