FIBARO Dimmer 2

Product Overview

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 Highlights

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

Use Case

1. 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.

2. 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.

3. Dimmer 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!
