Fibaro Z-Wave Dimmer 2 insert module retrofits into an existing light switch enabling you to wirelessly control lights. The new Dimmer 2 is a true universal dimmer – automatically selects the most suitable dimming type (trailing-edge or leading-edge) based on the bulb type used. It measures the power being used and reports that to the Z-Wave system and it is fully Z-Wave Plus certified – offering increased range, extended battery life and Over The Air upgrading (OTA).

Product Description

Product Highlights

1) Works with incandescent bulbs, 230V halogen, 12V halogen and dimmable LEDs
2) Detects the bulb type and adapts the dimming behaviour:
3) Trailing-edge dimming – incandescent and halogen bulbs (resistive)
4) Trailing-edge dimming – LEDs and other resistive-capacitive bulbs
5) Leading-edge dimming – transformers and other resistive-inductive loads
6) On/Off mode – supports non-dimmable loads (3-wire installation)
7) Monitors and reports power – instantaneous (W) and accumulated power (KWh)
8) Auto-off Timer – turns lights off after programmed time period
9) Maximum load 250W (resistive), 225VA (resistive-inductive) and 200VA (resistive-capacitive)
10) Supports 2-wire (no neutral) and 3-wire installations – further information is in our 2-wire/3-wire guide
11) Second switch input for controlling additional associated devices or 2-way installations
12) Various switch types – momentary (default), toggle, 1-way and 2-way

Use Case

Dimmer 2 helps to reduce the expenses on lighting. Dimming bulbs permanently by 15-20% is unnoticeable and harmless for eyes and helps to lower the electricity bills.
It is a middle of the night and you need to visit the bathroom. You turn the light on, but it blinds you, rather than illuminate your way. With Dimmer 2 lights at night will turn on slightly dimmed, gently illuminating your way.
3Dimmer 2 will turn light switches buttons into a scene trigger. Activation of the selected scene becomes as simple as turning the light on: just press the button while entering the room!
