Universal Z-Wave Dimmer for Wired Lights

Enable Z-Wave control for almost any light fixture by wiring it into the FIBARO Z-Wave Dimmer 2 (U.S.). Designed to wire into your existing wall switch and retrofit into your switch's electrical box, this dimmer module provides On/Off/Dim control for dimming loads and On/Off control for non-dimming loads. You can control the light with the wall switch or remotely via Z-Wave. As a universal Z-Wave smart dimmer, the module works with most lighting types, including incandescent, halogen, LED, and CFL (see specifications for details).

  • Supports dimmable and non-dimmable lighting loads
  • Optionally turns existing switch buttons into a scene trigger
  • Reports energy usage (instantaneous W and accumulated KWh)
  • Built-in overheating, overload, and voltage drop protection
  • "Z-Wave Plus" certified for wide compatibility
  • No neutral wire required, supports 2- or 3-wire setup

Installation Details

Installation is possible in buildings with both 2- and 3-wire systems, so while a neutral wire setup is supported, the neutral is not required. Compatible with various types of switches (momentary, toggle, three-way, etc.), the Z-Wave smart dimmer has an algorithm of smart light source detection that automatically detects the type of light source connected and then calibrates itself for optimal operation. An integrated multi-color LED (RGB) indicates your installation progress and assists you in performing the range test in conjunction with your Z-Wave controller.

Z-Wave Plus Certification

Z-Wave Plus is an upgraded certification program to help you identify products that take advantage of the "Next Gen" Z-Wave hardware platform, also known as 500 Series or Gen5 Z-Wave. Z-Wave Plus certified solutions feature a selected set of extended features and capabilities that enhance your experience with faster and easier installation and setup. Z-Wave Plus advancements also provide longer battery life, faster operation, better wireless range and improved noise immunity.

NOTE: Z-Wave smart dimmer requires a Z-Wave network controller. Loads less than 50W may require a FIBARO Dimmer Bypass 2 FGB-002 (not included).
