    Daz003 – I don’t get the message but do get a substantial delay of up to 25 seconds.

    I don’t have heating controls and have no plans to get any.

    I agree. I found using the wireless switch to be more reliable and versatile.
    It is available as a one-gang. See jsjslw 205 or 201.

    Sorry – didn’t see The post from StalkS above. What I find confusing is the difference between the models JSLW571 to 576. I am looking to control a single colour led strip with 230V input.

    I see that cableintelligence.co.uk seem to be selling these although I haven’t tried to buy any yet.

    This looks like just the thing I’m looking for. I want to dim a single colour (blue) led strip. Presumably I could just ignore any colour changing ability? Anybody done this?

    I assume you are talking about the LW830 which I believe has dry contacts so you should be fine. The reference to the resistive load of 3KW is just the rating. You would need to derate that for inductive loads but unless you have a colossal amount of lights I don’t see a problem.

    Assuming these bulbs are LWRF compatible and dimmable, it sounds like a minimum load problem rather than a maximum load one. But with 6 or 7 bulbs I would have thought that would be OK. You may need to have one halogen for a small resistive load, or perhaps a dummy load – Google ‘Resloade’.

    Neil,
    Thanks for your very interesting response – I’ll look into it.

    Hi skiv71,

    No, I haven’t looked into Z-Wave yet but it is a possibility. I was hoping feedback was in the cards for LWRF. Thanks for the info.

    kerbys,

    I too would like to see feedback. As a convert from X10 some feedback to the app about the status of lights, sockets, etc. would be welcome. If I use the app when away from home I have no idea whether my command got through to the device.

    As a suggestion, make sure all your switch boxes are deep ones and run a neutral into them even if not required at the moment – a bit of future-proofing. It’s no fun trying to retrofit these.

    I hope the new dimmer switches will have a lower minimum load. 40 Watts is quite a lot with LED bulbs.
    In the meantime it’s frustrating that I can’t get any dimmer switches of any model. My query to LWRF goes unanswered…
