Can anybody point me to a relay which can drive a load of 13A or more (in the UK so 240v), and mounts in an existing wall box, but isn’t a socket?
I’m looking to control my storage heating with SmartThings and was expecting it to be fairly simple – naively, it turns out!
Although is seems there are a number of replacement wall sockets which can handle 13A loads, my electrician tells me that the storage heaters shouldn’t go through a socket, and so I’m looking for something that replaces the wallplate. I’ve found a couple of solutions which go inline into the wire, which I think would work but leaves an extra bit of kit hanging about the room:
as well as the Aotec Heavy Duty one which is rather overpowered for this job.
Can anybody (a) point me to a relay which can mount in a wallbox like this, and/or (b) tell me how to work out whether the two inline relays I found will work with SmartThings? They are Z-Wave/Zigbee, but I’m new to all this and don’t know whether that’s enough …
