Control4 8-Channel Dimmer C4-DIN-8DIM-E
This is an 8 channel dimmer that goes in a panel (mounts on a DIN rail). I have been looking for something like this for a while now, but haven’t had much luck.
Part of me is tempted to get one and see if I can get it to talk to ST over ethernet (as that is how it is controlled). But I wanted to throw it out here to you all to see about a couple of things…
- Has anyone gotten one of these to work with ST?
- does anyone know of something similar that is not C4 and might be more open?
My situation is this… I have some outside lights that are all run directly to my mech room in my house. Right now they are all controlled off of one motion sensor (not a zwave or zigbee… just a standalone motion detector). I’d like to split them out instead of all being off or on, I’d like to be able to split them out in to 3 different dimmable “zones”, and then control each zone with ST. I know the 8 channel dimmer is a bit over kill for 3 right now, but I can’t find anything really made for this.
I could always put 3 individual dimmers with switches, but I don’t need physical switches in my basement mechanical room for these zones that are outside. I’d like something that’s a little cleaner. Any ideas?
