Use Z Wave LED Dimmer for Smart Home Lighting and Home Automation

Z wave is a new emerging wireless control protocol for smart home lighting and home automation. It enables users to control residential lighting wirelessly with high reliability and stability. Z wave dimmer can be a perfect solution for LED lamps with radio frequency communication.

Z wave dimmer system consist of a remote control, a master and a RF signal receiver. It adopts source-rated mesh network architecture which allows up to 243 devices including remotes, masters and receivers in each network. Every device is a node with transceiver function. All devices in the network can actively route around and circumvent obstacles or radio dead spots. Which means they can communicate to one another with intermediate nodes. Wireless synchronization function can drastically increase control distance (30m between every 2 devices ). The advantage of z wave is that one malfunction or dead node will not effect the whole network.


The master shall be added to the mesh network first and then the remote shall be paired with the receiver through the master. Once pairing is done, the master can be removed from the network. There are many types of z wave remote available in the market from some famous suppliers. Handheld remotes with keys, wall mounted push switches and wall mounted touch controls are the most common ones, you can choose as per your preference. They are also available with different types to control mono chrome, dual color and RGB/RGBW LEDs. The remote sends out radio frequency signal to the receiver and generally the frequency varies from different countries and areas.


The function of a master is a intermediate bridge between the remote and the receiver, the remote shall be paired with the receiver through the master. Of course there are remotes in the market with master function which means you do not have to purchase extra masters.


The receiver is a decoder that receives RF control signal from the remote and outputs PWM signal to dim the connected LED lamps. The receiver is available with different input types, you have to make sure your LED lamp input to match with the receiver. AC input LEDs such as LED bulbs, LED downlights shall be connected to AC input and output receiver. DC constant voltage input LEDs such as LED strip lights shall be connected to the DC constant voltage receiver and the receiver shall be powered by a AC to DC power supply. DC constant current input LEDs such as LED panel lights shall be connected to the DC constant current receiver and a AC to DC power supply is required. Once figure out all the above pointsArticle Search, you can choose the right z wave led dimmer for your home.
