I have a closet switch with no neutral wire available, so I can’t just install a GE In-Wall dimmer like I’ve done elsewhere in my home. The load on this switch is a 23.5 watt LED fixture.
I am looking for something I can install/wire that will:
- not require a neutral wire at the switch
- will work with the LED load mentioned above
- will NOT require another hub (so, no Insteon, Lutron Caseta, Phillips Hue, etc.)
The fixture is dimmable, but I’m willing to forgo the ability to dim. A dimmable solution would just be a bonus.
I’ve looked at the Fibaro Switch 2 and the Fibaro Dimmer 2. The Switch 2 information I’ve read says it is for incandescent or halogen (not LED), so it appears to not be a possibility for on/off functionality. The Dimmer 2 info seems to say it will work with LED if the minimum load is 25 watt. If the load is lower (like the fixture I have), you need to install the Dimmer Bypass pass module(??).
Surely someone makes a z-wave or zigbee micro controller (on/off or dimmer) that I can just wire behind the switch that works with low watt LED fixtures? If such a controller exists and requires a neutral, I could always wire it up at the ceiling fixture.
Many thanks for any advice/product recommendations.
