Need some assistance with this project. I would like to install some track lighting using about 300-600 watts of ELV dimmable LED fixtures in a family room.
I really like the Aeon Lab AL001 touch panel faceplate and associated micro-dimmer. However, the micro-dimmer cannot handle the load nor ELV dimming.
I have not found a touch panel faceplate/switch to handle the load. I can, however, install the Aeon combination connected to a dummy load in the storeroom of the family room. In the storeroom, I could install the z-wave dimmers for the track lights.
- If I use the Aeon touch plate and micro-dimmer to adjust the dummy load, can Smartthings (CoRE, etc) read that dimming level and then send it to the track lights z-wave/zigbeee dimmers.
- Does anyone know of a z-wave/zigbee touch panel/dimmer that will handle 600 watts of 120volt ELV dimming? Or even 300 watts of ELV dimming.
- I found an insteon DIN rail mounted dimmer, but the hard wired sense line on the insteon only reads an on/off contact closure, not a variable signal (from the Aeon). Plus unsure I’d find a device handler for the insteon.
- Most controls can be hidden and placed in the storeroom, even DIN rail mounted.
So…Echo, Alexa, and other Smartthings commands go directly to the z-wave/zigbee track light dimmers. Touching faceplate panel controls dummy load and sends values to Smartthings then value sent to track light dimmers.
Any assistance would be appreciated.
