Lightwave RF dimmer switches are available in a variety of options to suit the needs of many home automation projects. Choose between wired (230V) or wireless (battery powered) versions. Wired dimmer switches work in a similar way to traditional dimmer switches and can be used to dim or switch the lights on and off. But because they are dimmer switches, they must be used with dimmable light bulbs.
Wired dimmer switches are wired directly into the lighting circuit, just like an ordinary light switch or dimmer switch and are designed as a retrofit solution. Lightwave RF also offers 2 way or 3 way dimming which means you can dim the same lighting circuit from 2 or more switches (or locations from the room), this requires slave dimmers. Wired dimmers are available in 1,2, 3 and 4 gang versions.
If you only want to switch a lighting circuit, possibly because it's not dimmable like a floodlight for example, you can do this but you need a wireless switch and a receiver for it to work. Wireless switches are only available in 1 or 2 gang versions. More information about switching can be found here at the Lightwave RF website.
Mood controllers are also available, these are wireless and allow you to set scenes for reading or watching TV etc. For example you can switch or dim multiple receivers or link them to mains dimmers. Then at the touch of one button you can dim your wall lights down to 50% and turn your 'big light' off completely. Or we have the new scene selectors which are more modern looking and have an improved layout.
Each wireless switch must be matched up with a separate receiver, mains dimmer switches can act like a receiver. Wireless switches are battery powered and can be stuck or screwed to a surface. They can even be fitted inside a bathroom to create a bathroom LED dimmer switch!
Other accessories include remote controls and the Wi-Fi hub. The hub is not an essential part of a Lightwave RF installation and is only needed if you want to take things to the next level and control your lights with a smart phone or via the new web based App. The App provides many features such as timers and allows you to control your lights remotely from anywhere in the world!
This is the Gen1 version (also known as Connect Series) of Lightwave RF switches which is still the current version. Although Gen2 (also known as Smart Series) is a newer version, it is not going to replace Gen1 and Lightwave plan to run each versions side by side. Many of the Gen1 and Gen2 products can be used together. Gen2 has 2 way feedback between the devices and the App which allows the App to know which switches are activated and which are not. With Gen2 smart switches you can program the switch to do 2 way dimming or just switching which means you don't need any slave switches and Gen2 can be used with non dimmable lights.
Voice activated dimming can be achieved in combination with Lightwave RF and Alexa compatible devices. This includes Amazon Echo and Amazon Dot. This allows combination allows you to control your Lightwave RF devices by voice activation without having to open the Lightwave App and also applies to power sockets and heating controls.
