    Ramp rate only pertains to the dimmer. This firmware update is for the wall switch (on/off). FYI

    That would be a lot of work. Cut the drywall enough on any side that a conduit connects to the box. Remove box, install replacement. Lots of patching and painting.

    I'll order another switch to see how difficult it is to fit along side another one. Hopefully it will work.

    Thanks for the suggestion.


    Where you have space all around the box, you could cut out a much larger section of drywall, do your conduit/box work, then just enlarge the old hole in the same drywall section and drop it back in. That would save a lot of hassle with broken/crumbling edges. Also, I always use a knife rather than a saw to cut drywall. Less mess and easier to get nice tight re-use of original material

    Would something like this work?

    There was another post saying it is ready for the on/off/on issue, I emailed for that to get it for two of my WS100s where I see that issue. Just emailed for this post to also get it for the WD100s since this ms setting stuck at 3 is applicable to WD100s (config obviously not present on the WS version), presuming firmware is different for the two models. Thanks.

    Village code specifies metal boxes and conduit so no go on replacing with plastic. I could get away with it until we sell the house in the future.

    I'm thinking the rounded corners of the mud ring are my issue. Anyone think it would be viable to take a metal file and file out the rounded corners?

    Ok, so I am a newbie to all of this and this and this will be my first post, so if this is a stupid question I apologize. When you say "try the latest release", where can updates to the firmware to the switches be downloaded? I have installed 3 sets (HS-WD100+ with HS-WA100+) and love them. Of course needing power at the switch is a challenge in a 40 year old house, so it is taking a bit more work than expected to get everything installed. By the time I am done I will have re-wired most of the house.

    That does look to be a very small old style metal box. If that's dry wall you might find one of those "old work" plastic boxes they sell at Lowes and HD a quick problem solver. I have installed many of those to replace slightly smaller old boxes and I don't have a problem fitting 2 & 3 of this style switches in the respective 2 & 3 gang boxes.
