Fibaro Wall Socket switches off

Recommended Posts



I have a Fibaro Wall Socket, it works ok with normal devices.

But when I plug in a electric heater which has max 2500w, exactly the max the wall socket specifies it can take. The socket turns off after a few seconds.


Help! I need to get it working the whole reason I purchased fibaro wall socket and HCL is to automate my heater.

The socket says it can take 2500w, and the electric heater is max 2500w, until the socket turns off I can see the heater is around 2300w.

Check device overload parameter setting, As far as I know it shuts off over 3200W. May be your heater has momentary power spikes (you won't see them in UI)

Please notice, It could be different parameter number, depends on wall plug generation and version.

If device setup is OK, try to replace heater with lower consumption or purchase different switch (I'm using Aeon lab wall plugs for high consumption appliances)

big is danger?


First of all, electricity runs in a circuit. You need N if You want the electrons to go from L. Earth/GND/COM is there in case those electron decide to run away. They can run into the ground with no significant damages or they can burn a hole in Your wall accompanied by a fireworks show. Taking out interferences from the ciruit is another matter.

If I may suggest - don't do installations if You can't tell the difference between N and PE.
