Add Wireless Z-Wave Remote Control to an Exiting Switch and Monitor Energy Consumption

Aeotec DSC19xxx-ZWUS Z-Wave Micro Smart Energy Illuminator Dimmer Switch G2, 600 Watt
It has long been thought that a house becomes a home when we make it reflect who we are, when we personalize it, when we fill it with objects we treasure. And all of that remains true, but it no longer needs to be just the objects we put in our home that personalizes it. Like the music that gently fills the background of your favorite restaurant, Aeotec’s Micro Switches create the perfect ambiance for your home, and then some. They also give you the perfect control and the perfect, intelligent automation.

The Aeotec Z-Wave Micro Smart Energy Illuminator Dimmer Switch G2 is a low-cost Z-Wave dimmer module specifically used to enable Z-Wave command and control (on/off/dim) for existing in-wall switches. It can also report immediate wattage consumption or kWh energy usage over a period of time. The wireless module is powered from the mains supply and is a three-wire design which requires a neutral connection. In the event of power failure, non-volatile memory retains all programmed information relating to the unit’s operating status. It also is a repeater in the Z-Wave network. Acting as a bridge for communication, it will forward Z-Wave command messages to their destinations if the originating controller is out of range from the destination node. By taking advantage of the Z-Wave mesh network, commands can be routed to their destination via intermediary ‘listening’ Z-Wave products. Products that are Z-Wave certified can be used and communicate with other Z-Wave certified devices.
