Aeotec Z-wave Nano Dimmer InWall
The AEOTEC Nano Dimmer InWall dramatically improves the lighting in your home. Aeotec 3rd generation of invisible lighting controller outperforms all that has come before it. Dimming is smoother. Compatibility is broader. Lighting is faster and more responsive. Automation and intelligence have never been more powerful. And it comes in such a small size, that you’ll be amazed at just how much functionality we were able to craft inside.
Perfect lighting is a part of every truly smart home. Lighting that is responsive. That is always the right brightness. That is always on when you need it, and off when you don’t. But perfect lighting has never been easy.
Instead, perfect lighting has been too complicated to achieve. In the past, to automate your lights with Z-Wave you’ve had to worry about the type of wiring you have, whether your lighting is trailing or leading edge, and whether you’re using TRIACs or thyristors. Far too complicated. Get any of those wrong and your connected lighting would quickly become a connected headache.
No more. Nano Dimmer offers smart, connected lighting without any of the hassle.
Nano Dimmer lets you add new and existing lights to your Z-Wave system. It makes your lights smarter. It makes them responsive. It gives you the ability to control them, schedule, dim them and brighten them.
All that control and intelligence comes from simply wiring Nano Dimmer behind an existing wall switch.
PLEASE NOTE FOR THE INSTALLATIONS IN THE AREAS WHERE ELECTRICITY SUPPLIERS USING OFF-PEAK RIPPLE CONTROL SIGNALS:
Electricity suppliers in particular areas of Australia such as NSW, QLD and some others places are injecting an off-peak ripple control signal using Zellweger equipment or similar onto their distribution networks in order to remotely control devices such as off-peak hot water systems and street lighting, although other areas within Australia also use this technology. Not all properties are affected by ripple control, so just because you might live in one of these areas, does not mean that you will have these problems.
Ripple injection control systems work by superimposing coded control signal, commonly 750Hz or 1050Hz on the 50 Hz mains supply.
Some electrical appliances such as fans, dimmers, toasters and LED lighting can be sensitive to this ripple control signal. The results could be audible buzzing noises from fans or flickering lights whenever the ripple control signals are present.
Electricity suppliers are advising users to install appropriate ripple signal filters in such areas.
The ripple signal filter is a tuned passive inline filter which completely eliminates the superimposed ripple injection control signal from the normal mains supply to produce a noise free filtered mains supply which can then be connected to the electrical appliances or light control systems. The ripple signal filter is specifically tuned to eliminate the ripple control signal frequency of 750Hz or 1050Hz.
However we can’t guarantee the ripple signal filter always will help you if you experiencing such issues. Please contact your local energy provider to get more information and proposed solutions for your electrical installation.
If you are getting similar problems with your dimmers and fans and it’s not Ripple Control Signal and you are hearing the tones at random times of the day, your electrical supply may be affected by harmonics; a power fluctuation that is not part of the normal electricity supply or ripple control signal output.
Harmonics are caused by an interference created by other equipment on the network, such as inverter type air conditioners and switch mode power supplies for computers.
The offending appliances may be in your home or other premises on the local power grid. If you are being affected by network harmonics, it may be of benefit to transfer the electricity supply to your premises to a different phase in the street. This is something you will need to discuss with your electrical company.
We are strongly recommending for the areas we have mentioned above to run test with only few dimmers before committing for high volumes. If results are not fully OK you may use relays only instead of dimmers.
Please note that our warranty for the faulty devices is not covering above mentioned conditions with your local electric grids.
