    Monoprice Z-Wave RGBW Controller On Sale

    The Monoprice Z-Wave RGBW Controller is on sale for $17.99.

    A lot of their other Z-wave stuff is also on sale, so would not be surprised if they're getting out of the Z-wave business in favor of their
    STITCH equipment.
    My system is described in my profile.

    I actually built my own PCB because nothing like that was available before. In any case, while I saw this device some time ago I never looked at the specs. They are confusing. The max load is defined as 156W @12V. So that is 3.25A for each of the 4 channels. They actually mention the 3.25A in the "Rated Output Power". However, in that same section they say "*1. 13 amps (sum of all 4 connected outputs). *2. 7 amps for a single output." I must be missing something...

      Thinking about it, why are there input connectors? You are supposed to control the outputs via z-wave. Hence, the z-wave is the input to the device to control the output. That means there is no need to have input connectors.

        Looking at the manual and reading some google posts I think you can a) control the brightness through z-wave and b) you can also control it through external inputs to set each channel to last input, max input, etc. I guess in most cases people won't use the inputs at all but just control it through z-wave. I assume it's ok to have nothing connected to the inputs.
