Fortezze MIMOlite suggestions for use

I have an ekstra MIMOlite and i dont know what i can use it for (i already set up one for my garage)
So any tips for some cool automation would be appreciated.


I use mine for my fireplace. I have a gas fireplace. the wall switch is only low voltage…no AC power, so a Z-wave switch would not work there. There is no AC power under my fireplace (should be but isn’t). There is a wall outlet nearby so the MIMOLite’s plug-in adapter is very handy.

Once wired up, I use this simple trigger (Rule Machine) to “sync” the wall switch so that I have automation, remote, and physical control.
