Our wiring is such that the load is supplied to the ceiling with a single cable down to the existing dimmer switch. I’ve been able to trace most of the wiring behind the walls and in order to run another cable down to the switch (basically running power through the switch to the 6 LEDs in the ceiling) I’d have to tear out quite a bit of wall. Fortunately, it’s in a closet and easy to repair neatly, but still a lot of work for a single circuit.
I’ve been looking at Aeotec’s Nano Dimmer and it seems promising, but we’d prefer manual dimming as well. Is this possible? Seems Aeotec’s compatible Touch cover is binary on/off, but I did see mention about a dimmer that pulses signals (I’m assuming similar to how Lutron’s Caseta-based dimmer works). Does someone know of a dimmer switch that would allow me to program the levels to automate Aeotec’s Nano Dimmer? I’ve found nothing searching so far.
So much desire for HA, but an older home sure does make it difficult!
