I’ve just bought a Relay Switch to wire up to my pond pump, however I’m a little confused about the wiring diagram and how exactly to configure this with my setup.
Currently, my pump goes to a fused spur (essentially a hardwired plug socket). The requirement for the pump is that it must sit behind a 3A fuse which is in my fused spur.
What I want to do though is have my relay so that I can control the pond pump from SmartThings, however I also need to be able to control it manually. Now, I know that I could put a switch in to control it but I don’t really want to due to its location and I can’t find a suitable outdoor momentary switch, however this leaves 2 questions:
- Does the relay go back to its ‘on’ state if the power is cut and restored, like Hue bulbs do?
- How would I wire my pump in without a switch?
