We have 2 large floodlights (assume 1kw each) that we use in the evenings to (try to) keep our kids running around and off their gizmos. The issue I have is the switch for it is in the loft. This was a retrofit by a sparky and so I’m pretty sure we have all 3 wires easily accessible at the switch.
I’m looking at putting in a z-wave switch but my concerns are:
- 2kw…not sure which switches will handle that.
- Loft temps during summer. Granted we won’t be using the lights during summer as it’s light late anyway, but I imagine the loft heats up, so not sure the switch will cope too well with that.
I’d appreciate thoughts / ideas if anyone has any. Easy enough for me to look to get the normal Fibaro or alternatives, but I’m not sure they will like the 2kw and temps as above.
Cheers and thanks in advance,
