Choice of dimmer and wall switch

Postby MaikelK » Mon Nov 19, 2018 1:53 pm

Hello,

I'm looking into switching over from KlikAanKlikUit(CoCo) to Z-wave as im missing the feedback into Domoticz (plus i sometimes have problems with the dimmers going into some kind of disco mode where the light keeps dimming up and down or not responding at all)

During the rebuild of our house i made a stupid mistake and that is that from the switches in the wall i didnt run the wires to the lights. The lights are directly wired to the fuse box.
Behind the switches i have installed the KaKu/CoCo transmitters.

What are the options for me to introduce Z-Wave dimmers(able to dim LED, i also want switch over to LED) and keep the wall switches with the possibilty to dim these via the wall switch.

I was thinking off the following dimmer:

And the following LED spots:

Can anyone shine a light on my question and challange?

But i would like to have the possibility to be able to dim the lights via the wallswitch. Is that still possible of i would put a remote behind the wallswitch and the dimmer in the fuse box?

That is an option,
there are wall transmitters with 4 buttons, perhaps on/off/dimm etc?

I have seen the Fibaro Button, but are there any others that only function as a transmitter, i dont need the function of the dimmer inside the wall as the dimmers are all in the fusebox....

Putting a remote behind the wall switch and a dimmer in the fusebox will double the costs.
Pulling some wires will be much cheaper and will make your installation alot smaller and cleaner.
Less change of trouble that is

I seem to not be getting the notifications for new posts but i have the box ticked under options... Anyhow...

I'm not able to pull the wires as that would mean removing plasters ceilings and digging into the walls will be necassery... dumb mistake when rebuilding the house and cant recommend it to anyone.

So any other options, that can double the costs.... i have no other option if i want to switch over to Z-wave.

I was browsing the web and saw that the Fibaro Single Switch for example has two switch inputs.

Can these be used to switch other dimmers etc.? Can this single switch two be used for dimmer control with a puls/momentary switch?
