How to connect Fibaro Double Switch 2 without N cable?

Question

Dear Users,

 

Could you you please advise if it is possible to connect Double Switch 2 without N cable?

I am trying to connect Double Switch 2 to the double wall switch which is used for 2 seperate lamps. Current wall switch is connected via 3 cables: 1xL and 2x cables for each button, unfortunately N cable is missing. I have tried different combinations but until now without success. Attached you will find current wall switch connection where: brown cable is L, blue and yellow/green are buttons.

 

On the lamps are connected via 4 cables, 2 for each lamp.

 

Thanks in advance.

You can use a Dimmer 2 instead, (even for non dimmable loads), when you don't have a neutral. 

 

Also, in your case, you could try looking behind the lighting points, you should be able to find active and neutral as well as the switch wire there, given they aren't in the walls. It's likely you would need two separate Dimmer 2s for this.

I am 99% sure this won’t work. To use Dimmer 2 with non dimmable loads as a ‘switch’, you would still need a Neutral

  • Thanks for all answers.

    It seems that the best solution will be to use two Dimmers in fact.

    Perhaps you have in the ceiling central box the necessary wires?

    If box is to small put switch in lamp?
