Wired HTTP/API switch


chigori

Question

Hi,

 

I have quite some devices (like my underfloor heating valves) that are switched through the Fibaro 2x1.5k switches. Now, all the wires run back to the electricity board and there I have these Fibaro modules turning things on and off. My HC2 sits next to these modules.

 

I wonder if there are no devices that do the same (toggle switch) but can be controlled through an API instead of wirelessly. It would cut down on the z-wave traffic for sure and I could perfectly control it through my HC2. I can't really see any negative side to it.

 

Anybody know such a device or have any experience with it?

 

Regards,

Xavier

    Excluding the switches, around 30 with a bunch more that are still in the box, waiting to be installed. I mean with this "hardware devices", not as HC2 sees them (like 1 hardware motion sensor are actually 4 devices in HC2 I think)

     

    The underfloor heating switches are 9 2x1.5k modules and I have a bunch more of those 2x1.5k's controlling lights and such.

    yes there is a solution, which can be controlled by http commands. You need an ethernet module with 8 relais,

    What is even better than the Fibaro switches, is that they have an NC and NO connection possibility, so when power loses, you can decide what the base position will be..

    Search for ETH008 from DevanTech or Antratek !

  • Great, thanks for pointing me the right direction. Just ordered one.

     

    It seems like they even have up to 24 relais modules, which makes switching a lot of things quite a bit cheaper then using the Fibaro switches.

     

    I'll post my findings when I get to play around with for future reference.

    How did you get on with these modules?
