Looking at the Aeotec Nano Switch and they are pretty interesting in terms of they look seamless and interface with the existing switches. What I'm interested in knowing more about is what the user experience is with them and the standard light switches we have in NZ. I'm mainly interested in making switches smart to be able to automate lighting, however I want the traditional/physical experience to be the same (that you're not forced to pull out a phone/tablet/computer to toggle the lights).

 

My understanding on how light switches work, is that they are just traditional switches? As in the switch either completes the circuit or breaks it? In that case, how do these work after you've turned them off remotely? Do you then have to toggle the switch twice to reset them? Or will it just natively handle it and toggle on a single state change?

It works as you desire, each flick of the switch triggers the nano to change state

Basically the Nano switch takes control of your light completely. Your physical wall switches are then connected to the Nano switch to tell it when to switch the lights on/off via the wall switch.


 


Each switch has two input, S1 and S2. Each one can be programmed to work with a single switch latching switch (typical switch), Momentary press buttons, or with two-way switches (only one single Nano switch is required for 2 switches configured in a two-way configuration). Once you install the Nano switch and connect it to the wall switch you can place the Nano switch on “learning mode”. This is done by pressing the set button on the back of the Nano switch 4 times for S1 or 6 times for S2 and then operating the switches attached.  The Nano switch will then automatically detect the switches and configure itself.


We have those running in our showroom, you are welcome to drop by and have a play yourself 😊
