I have a 2-gang electrical box and I’m trying to achieve:
Two z-wave controlled 120VAC outlets (independently controlled) and 2 USB charging ports.
*USB is not z-wave controlled, just a convenient charging port.
*Would like to avoid anything external to the electrical box, anything that plugs into a regular outlet.
I can’t seem to find a product or combination that would fit.
There is no z-wave 120VAC outlet with USB.
All of the z-wave dual outlets have one outlet always on, one z-wave controlled.
So I just want to make sure we’re talking about the same thing. In the US, a double gang box with in wall receptacles would have four outlets. Do you want all four of those independently controlled, or just two of them?
OK, those don’t exist in Z wave yet, the radios are too bulky. Some of the manufacturers have talked about designing one once the smaller 700 series chip are available, but that could mean another two years before they come to market. I know at one point Inovelli was considering it, but I don’t think they went ahead with the design.
Hey guys, so just so I’m understanding correctly (idk, could be the Crown + Diet talking right now, could just be the Lazy Sunday syndrome) you want a Z-Wave Outlet (1 Smart + 1 Dumb Outlet) with built in USB chargers (does not have to be smart), right?
If so, yes, we are actually going to be launching this hopefully within a few months. Our manufacturer just came out with some themselves, so we’ll likely just take theirs and add our own firmware in it.
I’ll update tomorrow with some pics, but there are a few options and we were going to open up a poll in our community to see what’s preferred:
Yes, any of those options would fit my needs. Given the option I would probably go for #3. It is not critical to my project now, so I’ll put a regular outlet or just a cover plate and hopefully wait for you guys to come out with your product.
Any chance you can ping me when these products are available?
