Hello .. 

 

I have recently imported and installed this product "WiFi controlled Wall switches" and replaced one area of my house

 

Currently in the process of importing a big bulk of them (by early next week) so I can give them to couple of my friends who were really keen and also spread the idea here to check if there is any interest in them for those that like to do home-automation. 

 

 

 

The product itself looks very cool and it is a straight replacement to your existing 3 gang, 2 gang or 1 gang switch. The ability to control the lights via WiFi and also using your 4G / mobile while you are away from home. They are used in Australia already and are ready to be used in NZ as well. The only thing is you need to have a neutral wiring in your existing switches as these work only with a positive and neutral attached to it. 

 

Speaking to a registered electrician all NZ houses should normally have a neutral wire for all the switches. In my case it was already there. 

 

 

 

The App that comes with it is very simple and straight forward. You connect to your Wifi on the app and search for the switches when installed and it is configured. 

 

You don't need to do anything else for the app to work OUTSIDE your house on 4G/3G on your mobile, it connects to their server and talks to your router to trigger each switch. You can then backup and share the app data to another device in your house etc. 

 

Details:

 

This is how it looks

 

L6 WiFi 3-Gang Smart Switch(US)

They have rectangle ones and square shaped ones. The above is a rectangle 3 Gang. 

 

 

 

Company Website:

 

lanbon.cn

 

Design: 

 

Glass plated with touch screen on front, when removed there is a DIP switch that can change 3 GANG to 2 or 1 gang and plates can be swapped easily. 

 

Addition details from their website:

 

No host server, no remote controller needed            ●Big touch key design  ●Can control even one switch                                      ●Two color design ●Set scene as you need                                               ●Separate glass panel ●Time each switch as you need                                    ●DIP design ●Remote control anywhere and anytime                      ●Universal back design ●One key to configure                                                   ●Non–brass terminal

I have placed an order for bulk and soon getting them, if anyone is interested please get in touch with me on PM. 

 

Apologies if this is posted in the wrong forum. I am not trying to sell here but want to share the information that it is possible to control your entire switches in your house with an App on your phone.

So these have a AS/NZ cert already? If not I'm pretty sure you need one to sell these in NZ, or at least a declaration to say they need these requirements.

Can you use them without their servers? I.e. can they be flashed or updated to work via local control only?

They are actively sold by several electrical companies in Australia, but I am unsure if they are certified - sorry. Thanks for the heads up.

 

At the moment, I am only just importing for my personal requirements and few other friends who were really keen to get them. I will check with the supplier about the cert.

Not sure, I have not tried. But when I asked them to supply me a 2-way switch (where you control one light with two switches) - they are programming a pair to me to do that and sending it as one package.

 

One becomes master and the slave does not need any cables, only power and neutral and it talks over WiFi.

 

I hope i am making sense here :)

If you are going to sell them to anybody you should be fully aware of the requirements. You would be fined if caught selling a product without a declaration and/or compliance with the law.

Yep, taken note of that. I won't be selling them until confirmed about cert.

Yes, they are the same and I have been told they are the importers in Australia. I can see on their FAQ they are certified in Australia, does it mean I need to do them again here?

A quick Google and turned up this, not the same product it appears but very similar and from the same company.

 

Interesting that the device connects to a Windows Vista or 2008 server box in Hong Kong. I'd assume the device we're talking about here may do the same.

That is very old version and this is version 6. I am using them and and I can say the quality is very good.

 

This product is certified and ready to be sold in New Zealand and Australia - Cert below.

Now that I have confirmed that I can officially sell them as they are already certified. If anyone is interested in trying them please PM me :)

 

I am expecting the shipment to arrive by next week around this time.

Not sure what you mean by phoning, but the location on the App is set to Oceania - which i presume they have a server in or around Aus/NZ. Yes the device talks back to their server so your mobile phone app still works while outside home if that's what you mean?
