  • How to run events when double tapping a switch connected to a Z-Wave relay/dimmer

    Hi,

    I'm thinking about installing Z-Wave devices at my home.

    Current situation:
    - A dimmer is installed in the electricity closet
    - From the dimmer, wires go to the switches and return from it.
    - From the dimmer, wires go to the 12V transformers for my halogen spots

    What I want to do is:
    - replace the dimmer in the closet with a Z-Wave dimmer.

    This should work (I think, correct me if I am wrong). However, I am interested in doing something special when e.g. you double tap the switch (connected to the relay/switch), I want all lights to be turned off.

    Is something like this even possible with the installed (pulse) switches and the Z-Wave dimmer/relay?

    Best regards,
    Kriz

    Double taping will set the dimmer to full when using a Fibaro FGD-211 z-wave dimmer ....

      Mmm, what would be a good way to start a scene from a light switch then (e.g. All Off)

        I use a wireless battery operated X10 switch to control devices, scenes and events. These do respond to multiple taps so if I can have each button programmed for many uses. Below is an image, I mount it on the wall next to my regular switch. There is a z-wave version but I have not tried it.

        I also use regular z-wave light switches with multiple taps but they do not dim, only send multiple on signals which HomeSeer recognizes once programmed.

          I do realize that you are in another country but thought sharing what I use may give some ideas.
