My living room has 8 GU10 down lights which were controlled by iLight Control 4 Zone Control box. This control box has packed it in and is no longer available, thus leaving me without the ability to turn on my living room lights.
What I’m interested is getting my lights back operational but hooking the setup into Smartthings. Just not sure what I’m actually looking for.
As the iLight Control box looked after the lights all wiring is pointing to this unit which is located under the stairs. The lights for turning on and off were controlled by wall panels that connected to the control box via Ethernet wiring.
As there are 8 lights in the room, I would be interested if possible to control the 8 separately or in groups.
I was told by an electrician that there is no easy way to add in normal light switchs ie it is possible but you would be chasing cables and coming through walls, so I guess I want to somehow work with the existing wiring under the stairs.
There seems to be some devices out there that may assist, but I’m not sure and other than knowing what the wiring indicate not sure how they relate to my lights.
I’m open to suggestions on the best way to design this. Thanks in advance.
