So I’ve taken the plunge on a few systems to help make my home ‘smarter’, the most recent acquisition being the Samsung Smartthings hub with a number of sensors. Great so far, I’m loving the motion sensors and the fact that I can trigger the outlet plug to switch on some lights.
In addition to the Smartthings I purchased the Fibaro FGS-222 Dual Relay Switch to replace the current unit that controls my outdoor lighting. This is controlled via a Timecard SL055 which independently controls two separate runs of LED lights, one with 8 x GU10 5W LED’s and the other 4 of the same bulb types.
I wondered if anyone could provide guidance on exactly how to swap out the Timeguard for the Fibaro. I’m not bothered about retaining the Timeguard and am more than happy to just replace it with a blanking plate. I foresee us controlling the lights via the Smartthings app of IFTTT etc etc, so manual control isn’t a must.
I’ve attached some pics. I can see that the current wiring setup is :
Black - Goes to N on Timeguard
Red - Goal to L on Timeguard
I assume these are the main supply wires throughout the house.
There are then two extra wires which I assume supply power to the separate lights for each switch. The wires contained within are
First Brown - SL2
Second Brown - SL1
Green/Yellow - All three are screwed to the corner of the back-box
Blue - There are two blue (one from each wire) wires that are screwed into the second N on the back of the Timeguard (these run alongside the two brown wires)
There are lots of other smaller wires, some of which aren’t connected and others which are connected to PIR sensors - I don’t think I need these anymore.
Here are pictures of the Timeguard setup
In terms of how I’d wire the Fibaro up I’m at a loss. How do the inputs N, L, IN, Q1, Q2, S1, S2 translate to the wiring of Black, Red, Brown, Brown, Blue, Blue, 3 x yellow/green?
Am I correct in assuming the following on the Fibaro :
L - Red wire
N - Black wire
IN - ?
S1 - Empty (no physical switch required)
S2 - Empty (no physical switch required)
As I won’t be using a manual switch (if I can) I gather S1 and S2 on Fibaro are left empty???
