Fibaro dimmer 2 setup

Question

Morning everyone,

 

choosing a setup for my new home maken me wonder if my idea works,

each side of the bed I install a dimmer 2 connected to a double momentary switch. Above the bed I install a LED strip connected to a RGBW and the ceiling light is also connected to a dimmer. 

 

-S1 single click controls direct load spot

-S1 double click controls other dimmer

-S2 single click controls led strip in ceiling

-S2 double click controls ceiling lamp

 

this means from either side of the bed I can control all lights in the room with dim function. 

 

All i lose is the double click to 100%. Correct?

I'm quite new to this, but from my knowledge you would not be able to control rgbw (colour changing strip) from a dimmer 2, you might be able to turn it on/off from s2 but not dim or change colour etc and you would need one side to be a dimmer 2 wired as a 2 way switch and an rgbw module to control the strip on the other side (or elsewhere).

 

If you are happy with white led strip only the you could use 2 x dimmer 2 modules. You would need a mains dimmable led driver though for the strip and you would need to wire your switches in a 3 way setup, from main switch to left side of bed and right side of bed all on s1 terminal, then s2 to both sides of bed (and main room switch if you want control for led strip from there too).  

 

I hope that makes some sense.

  • Ok, so coming a little further with my project the next question comes up. I have 3 LED lights (wall washers) which are rated 16W (8*2W in one housing) and I want to make them dimable. 

     

    They are constant 700mA lamps so a dimable driver is required. 3*16=48W. Unfortunately I can’t find one that supports phase dimming. Option 2, buy 3 drivers. 

     

    Do I need 3 Fibaro Dimmers on this or can I do with 1? The fibaro dimmer supports 50W for resistive loads. 

     

    Or or am I reading this wrong?

    @Jaccoermers , I moved the thread to the proper subforum.

     

    I advise you to check the manual

    Please login or register to see this link.

    and focus on advanced parameters and FAQ part.

    S2 terminal is not a completely separate button. S1 works as a master switch and S2 is just optional.

     

    From FAQ:

    4. Is it possible to control two separated outputs from one Dimmer 2?

    No – the Dimmer 2 has only one physical output (controlled from S1). To control two circuits you will need to connect another Dimmer. However there is possibility to control two or more Dimmers or Relay Switches from one module using association.

    5. How can I use the S1 and the S2 connectors?

    Switch connected to the S1 terminal is a master switch. It activates the basic functionality of the Dimmer 2 (turning the light on/off, dimming) and starts the learning mode (Add/Remove). The switch connected to the S2 terminal is an optional switch and pushing it without changing the configuration parameters will not affect the status of the device. Functionality of the switches can be reversed by adjusting parameter 22.
