Use Dimmer 2 on/off timed relais



Hi there,

I've connected a switched power supply to the regulated output of dimmer 2, intending to use dimmer 2 as a timed switch. Here's what I'm aiming for: when I press activate, dimmer 2 should power the switched power supply for +/- 15 seconds and then switch off automatically.

I made some adjustments to the Params, and I managed to achieve the desired behavior for the on state, which works beautifully. However, in the off state, it's not doing what I expect. Instead of switching off completely, I hear a repetitive relay ticking about every second.

I attempted to switch auto-calibrate off, but that didn't resolve the issue. Could you advise on what steps I can take to ensure the module output switches off completely?

A switched power supply is not a supported load for Dimmer 2, it is intended to support lights and therefore it may still pass some current when "off" (especially when wired without a neutral) . For your use case you should consider Fibaro Relay Switch instead.
