Double relay switches

Hi, 

Sorry for my (maybe stupid) question but what is the difference between FGS-222 vs FGS-223 vs. FGS-224 smart double switches? I started to buy smart tools for my new house and I don’t want to make a misstake. 
Thank you!

There are some differences between max load. and other minor things.

The biggest difference is that the FGS-224 has ZW500 chip.

    I have checked the manuals but didn’t find any differences, the max. load is almost same. So the ZW500 chip can be a difference but it is important? I mean is any advatage compare to older chip? 
    The HC2 can use the advantage of ZW500 chip?

    @nadtom

    main difference:

     

    The device is a Security Enabled Z-Wave Plus product and a Security Enabled Z-Wave Controller must be used in order to fully utilize the product

     I don't know for sure.

     

    I think @akatar , can answer this question for you.

     

    The only thing I know is that, only a ZW500 main powered device can act as a ZW500 router, in you're mesh network. Otherwise it will fall back to ZW300

    That with the ZW500 chip etc. is a difference.
    But there are even more serious differences regarding the electrical connection and the function of the device.
    The FGS-223 as well as the FGS-224 have 2 channels.
    With FGS-223 we have a potential coupling with the supply voltage and a current and power measurement.
    With the FGS-224 we have 2 potential-free channels and it can also be operated with 24VDC. Then with the FGS-224, the inputs can also be end-coupled from the outputs.
    So in my opinion big differences.
    The FGS-224 is therefore in direct competition with the Qubino.
    Take a closer look at the data, not everything can be seen at first glance. Fibaro should add a little more to the advertising.

    You're correct.

     

    I find the device naming between the switch without and the switch with the relais very similar.

    Would prefer a better naming FGS-XXXR or something. But that's personal.

    Yes, many shops write only that Fibaro double switch...and no any identification number. I didn’t know at the beginning that you can buy different double switch types.
    I have ordered 10pcs FGS-224 today. Thank you guys! Danke schön!

    Also to add a penny from my side - 222 does not have scene activation functionality (double, triple press etc.). But at the same time it has better activation time and doesn’t have problem with “missed” presses.

    Here´s a pdf that explains pretty well the differences.

    That PDF is a joke regarding clarification of TOs question.
