You’re right - that’s not the answer I wanted to hear, but it’s the answer I expected to hear.
I have invested quite heavily in LightwaveRF mainly because at the time I embarked on it, they had most of the kit in place at a sensible cost - the light switches look pretty good and the relays can be put to all sorts of uses - I have converted everything from my lounge curtains to garden fountain, patio lights to ceiling fans. I’ve even wired in relays so that they work with ‘old fashioned’ light switches operating a two-way or three-way system enabling me to control lights etc remotely or on a timer.
I’m also very keen on IFTTT (IF This Then That) which links in with my Honeywell Evohome CH/Hot Water Controller, Netatmo weather sensor, Nest Smoke/CO2 detectors, etc. If LightwaveRF were compatible with IFTTT, even at it’s simplest level I could get the curtains to close at sunset and open at sunrise (there is a Lightwave night/day sensor, but it’s not great). There are a whole range of programs that can be easily written if Lightwave was IFTTT compliant - if it’s too hot then switch the fan on, if it’s too windy then close the sunblind, if it’s too bright switch the lights off, etc, etc.
As all of that seems unlikely to happen I’m trying to find a way of integrating Lightwave with something that itself integrates with IFTTT. (IFTTT <<< >>> Something <<< >>> LightwaveRF)
I’m pretty annoyed with Lightwave because right from the outset they said that third party products will be coming along that can be controlled by Lightwave (that never happened) and more recently that they were going to integrate with other standards (that didn’t happen either). Almost weekly, something else comes along (like SmartThings) and I optimistically look down the list of compatible products hoping that Lightwave would feature and it has on just two occasions, but both of these require some very serious low-level programming with almost no support and preciously little instructions.
So, thank you for your reply - if you know of a remote controlled relay that could replace my 20+ Lightwave relays, (that is a similar physical size and power rating) plus plug and play wall adaptors and remote controlled light switches, I might well cut my losses and change.
