need advice on what to buy

Post by dazzer1975 » Thu Jan 18, 2018 11:08 am

Hi all,

Hoping you can help me with some advice regarding what to purchase.

I have never employed any home automation equipment before so am struggling a bit to understand exactly what is required, hence this post. I understand things better when they are in front of me and I can play around, so am having some difficulty figuring out exactly how this stuff works together.

so:

To start with, I want to be able to dim and turn on and off my ceiling lights (4 x 50 watt gu10 bulbs... I will be using low wattage led's at some stage in the future) from my android phone.

I have come across tellstick equipment so my plan is to buy a tellstick net to attach to my router. The light switch for my ceiling lights I thought a nexa lwmr 210 dimmer or a nexa cmr 100 dimmer receiver to sit behind a nexa lwst 615 wireless plate switch

Is the plate switch needed, or will any switch work, provided the lwmr 210 is sat behind?

Does this plan sound about right and is this hardware the correct items I should be buying?

Thanks in advance for any help and suggestions you can offer.

Nm, spent a bit of time getting my head around it all and sorted it out.

Hi dazzer1975
Be careful the Nexa 210 dimmer is only for incandescent/230 V halogen bulbs up to a max load of 210 W or low-voltage halogen bulbs with an electronic transformer up to a max load of 180 VA.
The CMR 100 is for LED Max 50 W, Halogen 180 W and Incandescen lamps 200 W.

And look at this :

Hi Jean-Charles

Thanks for that, yes I had figured out some issues with the options I originally outlined.

I went initially with the tellstick net, then ordered 3 mains wall outlet receiver switches and tried for the lighting solution a home easy 1 gang dimmable receiver.


We will see how I get on, although lots complain about the home easy equipment, so I may choose the correct variant nexa dimmer once I have had a play around with the home easy.


I did order a nexa pir motion detector, but I have since read their use is still in beta via tellstick?

as an aside, voxcommand and eventghost can be implemented on a pc to voice control receivers via tellstick... very cool indeed.
