These Fibaro modules are designed to be retrofitted behind your existing light and appliance switches, converting them to the wireless Z-Wave home automation system. Makers claim a 5 minute install time and there are 4 different types available, a universal dimmer, a motor controller for blinds and shutters, plus two relays to switch loads of 1.5kw or 3kw.
In 5 minutes, your lighting system can be operated by your smartphone or Z-Wave remote control, by simply installing this device. With easy installation, you can keep your faceplates and use the switches manually as before, but with the added bonus of remote control.
Impress your friends by switching on the TV, and through the use of Z-Wave, dim your lights by 30% simultaneously. A home Z-Wave system can be built up gradually, so don’t fear if you have to move house, you can take it with you, and continue to build your system over a number of years. Afterall, the Z-Wave system can inter-operate with over 500 other wireless products. The potential is endless.
The Fibaro flush mounted inserts have a height of 15mm, but only occupy half the areas of a conventional wall mounted outlet.

It is possible to control your dimmer with either radio waves or with your wall switch. For safety, the device features automatic overload protection switch off and soft start function. Change how you control your home within 5 minutes of simple installation NOW! ”
[Update] – Quite a few of you asked if these modules need a Neutral wire (uncommon behind most UK switches}. The guys at Vesternet replied – “The switches do need a neutral, but the dimmer doesn’t. But you can also use the dimmer as switch if you like. There’s an accessory we’ve just added to the same page – a £9.99 dimmer bypass for low power light”.
