  1. I’ve recently installed a Fibaro Dimmer 2 in-wall module in my dining room on a 2-wire electrical circuit. This has been set up to control the main light using the load control of the dimmer (switch 1) and the lamps using z-wave control (switch 2). This works perfectly (see image). I would like to add a third switch to control another z-wave device in the wall panel. Would it be possible to do this by wiring in another Z-wave module in series or something? I’ve attempted this with a spare in-wall dimmer, but can’t figure out how to get it working on a 2-wire circuit like this one – perhaps it’s not possible. Any guidance would be really appreciated. See image for current working setup (two switches). Thanks!
  2. For a number of my ceilings I have the 24V transformers and Fibaro RGBW controllers in the loft and a piece of CAT6 cable wired into the RGBW terminals and fed down into each bedroom. Once in the bedroom the electrician crimped the CAT6 cables on to the RGBW strip lead cables. Worked great. However, all my LED strips had a fault after about 6 months and I'm having to go round replacing them all (all under warranty thankfully!). Whilst replacing I'm removing the crimp butts. What I'd like to do is replace the crimp butts with a plug & socket combo so if I ever need to remove them again in the future it's easy. The traditional plastic terminal blocks are too bulky in my ceiling space. The Wago connectors aren't practical for 5 wires. There's a fair bit of amperage going through the cable when I bang them up to full RGBW bright white managed to melt one of my plastic terminal blocks as it was (stupidly) only 3A safe (!) So I'm looking at other connector options such as ones found in PC hardware: 5 pin SATA connectors - https://www.moddiy.com/products/5%2dPin-SATA-Connector-w{47}-Pins-%2d-Black.html PWM Fan Connector x 2 - https://www.moddiy.com/products/modDIY-Female-4%2dPin-(3%2b1)-PWM-Fan-Connector-(Molex-%232510)-with-Pins.html 6 pin PCi Express connector - https://www.moddiy.com/products/6%2dPin-PCI%2dExpress-Power-Female-Connector-w{47}-Pins-%2d-Black.html But none of these really tell me how much power they can stand before melt down :-S Would appreciate any suggestions from experts
