This is a plug switch that can be placed between a socket for Schuko plugs (plug type F) and electrical appliances, connected by cord. It can switch up to 3500 W. The device has an IP 44 rating and can be used in dry environments, as well as in humid environments and outdoors. Switching is controlled wirelessly using Z-Wave or locally applying a button. A multi-color LED indicates the switching status and the assignment of the colors to the switching status can be defined by the user. The device reports any change of the switching status to a central gateway regardless of the origin of the switch (local or wireless). A built-in virtual energy meter will report the power consumption of the load that has been confirmed. However, the user must configure the assumed constant current collection of the load. The local button can control the local load, but can also be used to control other functions in a Z-Wave network. The device is certified and tested against all European safety regulations and fully complies with the Z-Wave Plus standard. The device supports secure communication and can be upgraded over the air (OTA).
