Using a wall mounted dimmer


Jamie

Question

Anyone tried to wire one of these into the Inputs of the RGBW module so that you have full control without the app?

 

Please login or register to see this link.


 

I have read the manual and it talks about using two switches etc and also pententinometer wiring. The unit has 4 x 0 - 10v inputs, assume this the dimmer switch will just adjust the outputs and the Fibaro can interpret this?

 

thanks

Hello.

I didn't quite understand what you were trying to achieve.

The control element from your link is an independently functioning device used to regulate its own RGB LED strip. Although it is not stated, the control of the brightness of the LED strip will be helped by PWM on the 12V outputs for each channel. It is therefore not possible to connect the output of the glass controller to the input of the 0-10V Fibaro module!

    Thank Martin, sorry what I want to achieve is the ability to fully control all aspects of the light form the switch on the wall and via Fibaro.

     

    Does that make sense? Maybe its just not possible..

     

    Thanks

    I think I understood you.
    Would you like to use the installed controller on the wall to control the color, control the brightness, turn on/off,...
    No, it is not possible to control the Fibaro module with your glass controller.
    No, it is not possible to control this glass controller with the Fibaro module.

     

    My advice would be more in that direction.
    You can replace the existing controller with buttons and use them to define scenes, or use the ready-made assignment.

    Place the Fibaro RGBW2 control module under the buttons.
    I recommend, for example, buttons (I have them at home):
    https://www.efapel.pt/en/products/logus-90/control-devices
    Electronic Very Low Tension 4-Gang Push-button
    21164

    Buttons:
    Quadruple Rocker 90600 T

     

    It produces many color variants (sample from my home):

     


    The last option is to use your device and connect it to Fibaro - it's not tested, it's at your own risk and it's purely theoretical.
    It's for someone who knows exactly what they're doing, wants to know electronics, and will need more wires.
    You can use the controller to connect the 0-10V analog input of the Fibaro module to the output of each channel via a resistive divider.
    The RGB led strip will then be connected to the output behind the Fibaro module.
    It is important that the 12V power supply is the same for both the glass controller and the Fibaro module.

     

    Good luck,.. and write back result..
