I’m after a little advice regarding some wiring setup so that I can ensure it does what I want and before I buy the kit for me electrician to fit. This is for a UK setup. As this deals with lighting I’m aware of the various UK specific lighting FAQ threads but I can’t find the right answer from these that I can be confident will work.
- Single 1 gang light switch connected to a standard light fitting (3 x 40W max LED bulbs). 3 wire setup.
- Convert standard switch connected to standard light fitting to a smart solution. I need to ideally be able to dim the lights fitting via a physical switch (and it has to be 'normal’ looking dimmer for the WAF) and dim via ST. I don’t believe this is possible so I’m willing to accept a smart on/off solution as long as it can be controlled by physical button and ST.
- Addition of 2 x Hue GU10 and 2 x Hue lightstrips. This will ultimately be linked to my AV setup and I would like a physical switch so that there is the option for these lights to not be active all the time. Obviously this needs to be something which won’t cut the power to the Hues as they need to be powered 24/7
Needs to have WAF - nice looking switches/dimmers (ideally chrome)
Have physical switches and ability to control via ST
Lighting setup for home theatre, with ability to turn this off when not required
I’m thinking the MCO Home touch panel 2 gang might fit the bill. If I was to get this could I wire one load to the existing light fitting and give me the ability to turn this off via physical switch and ST, and then use the 2nd switch on the panel purely as a z-wave switch to turn hues on and off via WebCore?
If not, does a physical switch/relay exist which I would get wired in and would be able to dim the hues but not actually cut power to them?
Hope that all makes sense. Any help will be greatly appreciated.
