Wire FGS-223 in parallel with another switch?

Question

Hi, I hope you are all well.

 

I would like to replace a couple of X10 modules with an FGS-223. The only potential problem is that one of the lights has another switched feed coming into it (as per the attached addition in red). This is something that I inherited and can't change and I also don't have the option to wire this feed into the S1 or S2 inputs of the module due to the situation of the light and this other cable. It's all on the same phase/circuit.

 

Irrespective of whether this is a "good idea" or not, it has worked reliably with the X10 switches (or as reliable as X10 ever is!) for over 10 years.

 

Would switching 240VAC to Q1 or Q2 (when the module outputs are set to "off") damage the FGS-223?

 

Regards,

Mike

Will be fine, I have a similar setup with a 240v pir so the sensor or fibaro module can both control the load. Potential will be the same on q1 whichever is turned on.

As long as you are absolutely sure they are the same phase and rcd all will be ok 8-)
