Animus Heart?

Looking for compatible outdoor switch

Hello! I have a lamp switch that controls my outdoor lights. Can I install something that gives me the possibility to not go outdoor to light them? Would like to be able to light them both with Animus and manually?

Hi there,

maybe replacing your existing switch with something like the Fibaro Walli would do?
Or placing a mini smart switch behind your existing mechanical also should work.

Yes that is no problem, you can use fibaro Switch modulene or nexa an179 and many more like this.

I have use it siple, plug like nexa in a box, and it goes on whwn sun goes down and off rhen sun goes upp. If I must turn on or off I have a remotecontrol.

And I won’t have to buy the Fibaro gateway then?

I can’t find any info if they are IP classed for outdoor usage…

I can confirm that the Fibaro Single Switch works with Heart, also many other manufacturer’s devices are listed as compatible.

Hm, somehow I assumed, your recent switch would be located indoors, so maybe better consider a mini-switch.

Is that the kind located inside the available switch that is placed outdoors today?
