MrSan

Question

Hello there.

I bought this one (non z-wave) switch and i have some problems.

I would like to use it with Fibaro dimmer for turn on my lamps with this switch and from PC via my z-wave network. Switch has relay.

But, unfortunately, switch don't work with the dimmer. I don't understand where is a problem. Can you help me to solve this question?

Thank you.

Firstly, may we know what kind of non zwave switch are you using? Momentary or Toggle type?

Secondly, what do you mean switch don't work with dimmer?

  • When i connect this switch to Fibaro dimmer, it doesn't work.

    I can change power of my lamp from Fibaro web interface, but switch looks like died. No any reactions to my touch and button backlight doesn't work too.

    This switch without dimmer or dimmer with old toggle switch works fine.

    So the dimmer module works perfectly before your switch comes in?

    Perhaps the switch isn't compatible. I have not tried using this switch before. Have you tried using the switch alone without the module to test if the on/off or switch is working?

  • Yes, dimmer works fine.

    I think so. But, unfortunately, i don't understand physical process that this switch doesn't work. Furthermore, i saw the video in YouTube, there man connected this one switch with Fibaro dimmer.

    Yes, certainly. Switch without dimmer works well.

    I know him in a facebook group. He's actually a DIY person. So I guessed as what he wrote, he hacked the switch for it to work with fibaro dimmer. Try contacting him for more info?
