I have recently got started with Philips Hue and SmartThings automation, and quickly come to the conclusion that a physical switch is needed!
I have one, two and three-gang switches currently, all rotary push on/off type…
From what I’ve read, most if not all z-wave switches require three wires (inc neutral), as the z-wave requires more power, however the Fibaro Dimmer 2 can be fit inside current switches (at £50 a switch!!!)
- I think the Fibaro Dimmer 2 does not work with rotary dimmers, so I need to change the switches over (ideally all matching style, ideally the rocker-kind with a dent in the middle so switch always returns to a neutral position)
- If switches can be two-wire, and the Fibaro z-wave dimmer works with two wire… why can’t anyone make a switch which is z-wave and doesn’t need the additional module?
- Has anyone got any suggestions for switches?
