This stylish switch from TKBHome is designed to switch lights or loads of up to 6A such as heaters/ceiling fans via the local paddle, or via Z-Wave control. It has 2 paddles, the left hand paddle controls the connected load (on/off) – the right hand paddle controls another dimmer/switch via Z-Wave Association.
Please note: this means that the switch only directly controls a single load. The second paddle should be associated, using your Z-Wave controller/gateway, to another TKB switch (for wireless 2-way switching) or a device such as a Fibaro dimmer module or a Z-Wave bulb.
The switch is designed to be a direct replacement for an existing light switch and is a simple way to add Z-Wave control to your lighting circuits.
The switch is equipped with a neat LED indicator to help you locate it in a dark room (can be turned off via Z-Wave parameters)
The key thing to note, for UK consumers, is that this switch requires a neutral at the switch (3 wire system) which is less common in older UK wiring set-ups. If in doubt, please check with an electrician before purchasing.
The switch has the latest Z-Wave Plus chip, meaning it improves communication with your other Z-Wave devices and as it’s a mains powered device it will act as a Z-Wave repeater to strengthen your network.
This switch should work with all major Z-Wave gateways and controllers. TKBHome have verified support for:
