Zigbee 2-1 Switch (On/Off & Dimmer) | Project New Horizon (Blue Series)

Just came across this project now - sounds amazing and exactly what I am looking for. I’ve looking at adding smart switches to 5 properties (will need ± 80 (mix of dimmers and normal on/off). Any chance the blue range will support 110 - 240v?

I’m based in South Africa (240v, 50/60 hz)

Sure.

basically, think of Zigbee and Thread as bieng very, very similar to eachother - to the point where most modern chipsets from SILabs are able to flip between zigbee and thread with just a firmware upgrade.

Will the no-neutral method still have the problem of needing around 25W minimum to work without flickering? Is there any chance of having a built-in bypass that can optionally be enabled?

That willl not work. The bypass goes between load and neutral. So if there is no neutral, there is nothing for the bypass to connect to.

Oh, right. I had a brain fart. Thanks for correcting me kindly.

Any chance the switch will support Zigbee Binding? Would be great to be able to bypass the hub if needed and communicate directly to the lights on the network (better reliability + reduced latency)

Actually, yes! I completely forgot about this selling point. These will work in 240V settings :slight_smile:

Yes, unfortunately. I don’t know what the minimum wattage will be as the ZigBee chip is different than Z-Wave, but we should be able to find out soon.

I believe so as we talked about it initially when we were looking into the aux switch with LED bar (since we were going to have to use ZigBee there too).

@EricM_Inovelli or @Darwyn_Inovelli – can you confirm?

Hey @JeffersonBledsoe – we spoke with @Darwyn_Inovelli today and confirmed that this is part of the ZigBee 3.0 spec so it will be available on the switch :slight_smile:

Project update: Everything is on track for Q4 release still. Today we talked about the pins to update from ZigBee to Matter and it sounds like it’s harder than we thought as the ability to get to the port may be difficult due to space constraints inside the switch.

We did suggest they look at alternate solutions for design and also to create a harness of some sort so that we at Inovelli could update it for customers if need be.

More to come!
