LightwaveRF Master Group Controller : Functional but plasticky

Switch Plates
1

We use one of these in our kitchen to control the toaster, microwave, lights and tv. You would be surprised how much juice these kitchen items use when left in standby.

Can’t give this a bad review as it’s fairly cheap and does what it says. Compared to the connected switches, these are really plasticky though and you wouldn’t really want to use them in a visible location. What i would really love is a (powered) switch replacement that is a transmitter. These only transmit and the powered switch replacements only receive (and switch locally).

Got this working with a vera lite and vera plus via the rfxtrx add-on , very happy customer with a very versatile wall switch configured to do all sorts. Here are the specifications for the LightwaveRF Master Group Controller:

  • Battery operated and can be placed anywhere to control LightwaveRF Lighting, Power and Heating devices
  • One touch of the ‘All Off’ button and every light, lamp or socket is switched off as you leave the room
  • Intelligent Lighting Control, Store and Recall ‘mood’ lighting settings, Save Energy
  • Control from anywhere using your Smartphone, Tablet or any other Web-enabled device with LightwaveRF’s Wifi-Link* (sold separately)
  • *LightwaveRF App available from Apple, Android and Windows App Stores

Very easy control of your lighting. Very good multi-programmable lightwave switch. Can set 3 scenes, controlling lights in several room at the same time, and setting the dim level of each room. Very good and can be placed anywhere as no wiring required.

Superb, smart, professional look and feel. Looks and feels like a highly professional product. I used to have these cheapo remote switch products that every one from tesco to maplin sell. These lw products are in a different class. The instructions are very safety focused and written as if it’s used like a remote control that you cold stick on a wall or lay on your table. However it is also clearly designed to be used as a direct replacement for a standard wall switch, the screws line up exactly and it fits flush. However do not muck about with that unless you know what you are doing with mains electricitynote to manufacturer: i wish the partnering mains units (which this switch controls) could also be operated by infra red, so i could add them to my programable remote control.

Perfect, change battery if not working. Quick delivery from amazon & very impressed with the product. Can control as many switches and sockets as we need now. Unit is small enough to stick onto a wall and look like a built in lightswitch. One word of warning, thought mine was faulty, as it wouldn’t pair with anything even though the led worked. Swapped it for a new battery and it works perfectly. Design flaw by lightwaverf putting the battery in working, as it must have been dead by the time it gets to the consumer.

Excellent addition to the lightwave product stack. Does what it says on the tin.

Spmall WIFI Smart Sonoff Touch Switch Wireless Smart Phone Remote Control Touch Via APP EWELINK : Very good product for the price

Disregard all the 1 star opinions about united kingdom wiring, indeed you want a neutral wire. Acquired my live wires the incorrect way the first time so unsuccessful to do the job, either wired erroneous on the present switch or labelled wrong on the this product. At the time that …
