Retractive Switches


Liquidchild

Question

Hi folks

I was wondering can you advise on what retractive switches you used in your Fibaro installation? Obviously these are going to be located in my home so i want something nice looking (chrome etc) and would be interested to see what switches others have used?

I was looking at this for a long time here in the UK having tried a few units that were not very nice and finally I settled on the Click Mini Grid Switch plates and Modules sold at www.astra247.com, I went for the Georgian brass plate with 2 Way Retractive Switch Modules but they have every style and insert you could ever want. I replaced about 15 light switches in my house with these about a year ago and they worked great. But now im moving house I was just able to remove my Fibaro modules and revert the switches to standard ones by just buying a load of the 2 way 10AX switch modules so very easy to revert back in the future.

If you are looking for something more modern, I used Jung switches from the A-creation range:

My electrician ordered them through BEMCO (I think). The glass frames are pricey (about £20/each). The backing (I mainly used 535U) are about £8-10 each and the buttons are a couple of quid for two. If you don’t use glass frames it’s a lot cheaper; less than £15 per 2-gang switch.

But whatever you do make sure that you get Jung to send you the white plastic spatula to remove the buttons so that you can pull the switches apart. We must have broken 5+ buttons (along with a lot of cursing and sweating) in the process of removing switches to work on the Fibaro modules. It was not fun at all. With the spatula it is unbelievably easy.

I used Clipsal Saturn switches with the LED indicator throughout the house I just built. I used the bi stable version, but you can get a bell press as well

I have used Click Mini Grid switches and found them to be good as they match other switches which are not Fibaro controlled...

i just bought a box of BIC pens..... opened them and got the spring from inside....

used a cutter and cut that spring in half.... then i just inserted the spring inside my switch....

almost all switches have some groove inside where you put a spring and make the switch mono stable .. no need to purchase new switches
