HomeSeer Z-Wave Plus RGB Smart Fan Speed Controller Switch, Gen5
Z-Wave Fan Controller Switch With Smart Home Status Indicators
Add Z-Wave control to your ceiling fan and get at-a-glance status reports about your smart home, by installing the HomeSeer HS-FC200+ Z-Wave Plus RGB Smart Fan Speed Controller Switch. As part of HomeSeer's 200 Series, this smart fan control switch features 4 multi-colored (RGB) LEDs framing the rocker paddle. These LEDs are programmable to illuminate or flash a certain color according to what you want to know about your smart home's status.
The HomeSeer HS-FC200+ Fan Speed Controller Switch is designed to work with 3 or 4 speed AC powered ceiling fans. It offers multi-tap and hold-down trigger options (up to 5 taps with 14 possible triggers), allowing you to control connected devices in your home; plus, it works as a Z-Wave signal repeater to strengthen your Z-Wave home automation network.
- Supports 3 or 4 speed AC powered ceiling fans
- Features 4 individually controllable multi-color LED indicators
- Multi-tap (up to 5 taps) allows triggering up to 14 scenes/events
- Uses simple screw terminal installation (neutral required)
- Supports single-pole or multi-pole configuration
- Compatible with HomeSeer and other home controllers
Z-Wave Controller Compatibility
With Z-Wave Plus certification, the smart fan controller switch is essentially compatible with all major Z-Wave hubs and controllers. However, the special LED RGB and multi-tap features of this fan switch are only guaranteed to be fully supported by HomeSeer controllers/systems. SmartThings users may also take advantage of these features using a special device handler. If you're using any other brand of controller, these features may be supported but cannot be guaranteed.
(Any controller that supports the Z-Wave configuration class may be used to set color options. On HomeSeer systems, simple event actions can be used to set the normal mode color and the individual LED status color and blink.)
Multi-Colored LEDs Offer Convenient Home Status Reports
The bank of 4 LEDs lining the dimmer's paddle operate in two different modes: normal mode and status mode. Whenever an event within your smart home network (such as an alarm triggering) corresponds to a status event you have programmed into the fan switch, the switch's LEDs switch from "normal mode" to "status mode" and illuminate/blink accordingly. When no status conditions are active, the switch's LEDs operate in "normal mode."
In "normal mode," the switch's 4 LED indicators glow to reflect the on/off/dim status of each circuit using a palette of 7 possible colors. "Normal mode" colors either can be set once and left, or can be programmed to change every day or on holidays, birthdays, and other special events. For example, you can program the LEDs to glow green and red in "normal mode" for Christmas.
In "status mode," individual LEDs can be controlled to reflect the status of nearly any device that is a part of your smart home network. For example, if it's after midnight and the garage door was left open, the 3rd LED on all the bedroom dimmers can be programmed to glow yellow (or any color). If a smoke alarm goes off, all LEDS on all dimmers can blink red. If no status conditions are active, the LEDs automatically return to "normal mode."
Multi-Tap to Trigger Entire Scenes
This Z-Wave fan switch works as a scene controller, allowing you to trigger up to 14 different automation events/scenes by tapping the rocker switch in various ways. Double-tap for one scene, triple-tap for another (press and hold to dim/brighten), tap four times for yet another scene, and so on up to five taps.
- Tap top or bottom once: turns connected load on/off and can also trigger 2 events
- Press and hold top or bottom: dims connected load and can also trigger 2 events
- Tap top or bottom 2, 3, 4, or 5 times: triggers up to 8 different events
For example, you could triple-tap the top of the rocker when you arrive home to trigger a scene that turns on your lights, sets your thermostat, and disarms your security system. Later when you leave home, triple-tap the bottom of the rocker to turn everything off and arm your security system.
