In some cases you may have a non dimmable lighting circuit that you wish to have smart control over. In this case you will need to wire the non-dimmable lighting source directly to one of our relays and not to the dimmer. You can then programme a spare channel of the dimmer to become a wireless switch for the relay (MAGIC SWITCH)
This wireless switching setup can be used with Lightwave relays for non dimmable lamps and even our smart plug sockets which may have a table lamp plugged into it.
The Image above is based on a retro wiring system where no neutral wire is available. As no neutral wire is available the Primary channel must be hard wired to a dimmable lighting circuit and channel 2 will automatically get power meaning it can be programmed to be a wireless wall switch for any other lightwave devices such as relays and sockets.
STEP 1: Please ensure that both dimmer and relay have been added to the app and name them accordingly
STEP 2: In the app select ADD Automation and SELECT GROUP
STEP 3: Please select SWITCH in GROUP AUTOMATION
STEP 4: You will see a list of rooms, please select the relay/socket and dimmer channel you would like to be grouped together
STEP 5: Save the automation and give it a name such as relay and dimmer group
Now the automation has been set up you will be able to wirelessly control the relay/socket from any spare channel of a dimmer.
A Group switch automation can be applied to as many devices as you wish meaning you can programme a spare dimmer channel to control multiple relays/sockets simultaneously for ON and OFF functionality.
The group automation means all devices that are linked together will always turn on and off at the same time when the relay/socket or the dimmer channel is triggered manually or from the app
The link plus hub will always remember that certain devices have been wirelessly grouped via an automation and will still work even if the internet connection drops in your house. As long as the Lightwave link plus hub has power all automations will still run
