The Z-wave adapter from FIBARO is made with the utmost precision. In addition to the standard on / off switching capability, this smart plug has a wide range of possibilities.
For example, the colored ring indicates how much power is being used (color changes as power consumption increases, up to max. 2500W). (The colored LED ring can be switched off via parameter 61 or set to a specific fixed color)
If the maximum power is exceeded, the LED ring on the device will flash.
The Z-wave plug module can also serve as a night light for sleeping children. Furthermore, the color ring can be used as a network tester. The color of the LED ring indicates the strength of the z-wave signal at a specific location.
With this Z-wave module it is possible to detect power consuming devices, the module gives information about current energy consumption in (k) Watts as well as your total consumption in kWh. With the aid of clear graphs it is possible to gain insight into consumption.
It is also possible to link this adapter with 'Toon' from Eneco.
In short, a Z-wave adapter with many possibilities.
In the video below you can see how you can include the FIBARO adapter in your Z-wave network.
The intermediate plug is equipped with a built-in protection against the risk of contact. An extra protection for, for example, small children who often crawl at the outlet height. An adhesive strip is supplied to lock the Wallplug into the socket.
Defect device reporting
The adapter has a built-in child protection. This creates extra protection for the entire electrical system against damage and danger. The Wallplug can also report if a device fails.
When the more than 2500 Watt continuous (or 3000 Watts Peak) is used, the LED ring will flash. Furthermore, he gives a notification via the built-in temperature sensor if the temperature becomes more than 55 degrees.
Built-in Z-wave network tester
With this adapter you can also test the coverage of your Z-wave network. By pressing the button of the intermediate plug for a few seconds, it shows the current network strength.
The LED ring provides light blue or white light as standard while it is connected to the wall socket. He also fulfills the role of a night light. The ultra soft light can be set temporarily by pressing the button.
Wireless update (only in combination with the FIBARO Controllers)
It is possible to wirelessly provide the device with new firmware (only with a FIBARO base station).
Use the FIBARO plug-in connector in combination with, for example, your iron. Create a scene that switches off the power automatically after 2 hours. If you accidentally forget to remove the iron from the socket, the plug will switch off the iron after 2 hours (or the time you want). This way you can easily make your own Z-wave secured iron bolt!
Tip 2 :
Use the intermediate plug to start a scene when you connect something (and thus power consumption occurs). When you use the plug at your bed to charge a smartphone, you can start the 'sleep scene' when you connect the smartphone. Click here for our mini project.
