  • I would try switching only one of the poles. Just make sure that if both wires are not live.

    Hi,

    I can't work out what you have from the picture but the diagrams in the link always help me figure it out. Connect the Fibaro S1 or S2 with line that goes to the light bulb in these diagram.

    Is the double pole you are refering to what we call intermediate in the UK?

    If it is, note that you can connect from the centre or end of the circuit in some of the configutations as some of the terminals of switches are connected together. Counting the wires in your photo I don't think this is what you have though.

    From what I can see you may not have a neutral line though so the 3KW may be no good located there

    The alternative might be at the light fitting?

  • Hi guys,

    Thx for your replies, it's driving me nuts, just can't get it working.

    I don't know if double pole is the same as intermediate.

    Used an online translator but can't get the correct translation.

    Looking at your diagram i think it's two-way switching.

    I definitly have a neutral there because for that kind of switch it's necessairy.

    The alternative at the lightfitting is not possible because there's no live there

    Maybe this diagram can illustrate more to you.

    If it's not possible to do it this way i can replace the wall switch by a single pole but even then it will be toiugh since i'm not an electrician....

    Ahhh

    Is the isolation required for any reason? Regulations? I don't think you can maintain it and have the fibaro in the circuit.

    If there is no reason for the isolation of the light all you need to do is:

    wires in L2 and 2 remove from switch and connect to N on fibaro

    Leave live feed to L1 but add new wire from L1 to L on fibaro

    add new wire to link L and I on fibaro

    wire currently in 1 goes to O on fibaro

    new wire goes from 1 to S1 on fibaro

    This will work but the light will no longer be isolated fully when switched off because neutral is always connected.

    If Isolation is required you can achieve with two 3KW working in sync through association ...one switching live and one neutral but I am not sure it would be OK for country regulations.

    I can sketch it but can't make any recommendation that it is safe if the isolation is there for safety reasons.

  • Thx Robert,

    It would be great if you can sketch it.

    Isolation is required in moisture rooms but this room has another function now.

    It's definitly not required there. (btw regulations are recently changed, it's not necessairy to have double pole switches in moisture rooms anymore but it's recommanded)

    Thank you very much again for your help

    YESSSS !

    Finally it works thanks to you guys

    Just struggled a little bit because manually switch didn't work.

    I forgot setting parameter 14 monostable switch to bistable switch but now it works fine.

    Only installing the switch into the wall switch was a nightmare.......but we did it.
