The Aeotec Nano Dimmer will drastically improve your home lighting. It lets you convert any light dimmer switch into a Z-Wave Plus dimmer. You can control it, schedule it or automate it from your existing light switch or a Z-Wave gateway. Aeotec Nano Dimmer is a Z-Wave smart dimmer device specifically used to enable Z-Wave command and control (on/off/dim) of any in-wall switches. It can report immediate wattage consumption or kWh energy usage over a period of time.
Nano Dimmer offers smart, connected lighting without any of the hassle and it retrofits to any switch to make it a smart one. Its fantastic dimming capabilities are complemented by super-accurate power metering, surge protection and overload protection. Nano Dimmer is compatible with all certified Z-Wave gateways including SmartThings, Fibaro and Vera. It will also work with Amazon Alexa when used with an Alexa compatible hub or gateway.
Nano Dimmer lets you add new and existing lights to your Z-Wave system. Now you can make your lights smarter, with the ability to control, schedule, dim and brighten them.
Nano Dimmer features with simple wiring behind your existing wall switch, so you don’t have to change the look of your home.
The best wiring compatibility yet
The complex light bulb compatibility just became easier. Due to Lighting Engine and a dedicated 32-bit CPU that features Nano Dimmer, it calculates perfectly smooth dimming, perfect bulb compatibility and self-adjusting its settings whenever a new bulb is used.
You’ll never have a problem with finding lights that works with Nano Dimmer’s list of compatible bulbs. Nano Dimmer’s Lighting Engine can be upgraded, which means that new compatibility calculations are only a firmware upgrade away thanks to Nano DImmer’s support Over The Air (OTA) feature for the products firmware upgrade.
Works with or without neutral
Beside its better lighting compatibility, Nano Dimme has a better wiring compatibility too. Whether your lights are installed in a 2-wire or 3-wire system, Nano Dimmer is compatible. Nano Dimmer will work with simple wiring or complex, 2 or 3-wire installations and Lighting Engine auto-detects whether your light switches have a neutral wire or not, then automatically adjusts it settings.
Keep your existing light switch
Nano Dimmer has been designed to work with most of the typically light switches – new or old. It can invisibly be installed behind them, enchancing their functionality instead of completely replacing it.
Nano Dimmer can be connected to: Toggle switch, Rocker switch, Pull-chain switch, Push-button switch, Slider switch and Wall switch.
Works without any switch at all
Z-Wave Plus connectivity lets you to intelligently automate your Nano Dimmer. You can responsively control it, manage it and monitor it even when you’re not home. Isn’t that great?
Smooth dimming even with its small size
Despite now being 60% smaller than Aeotec original technology, every single millimetre of Nano Dimmer benefits from Aeotec 10 year’s experience in making in-wall dimmers. That decade’s worth of expertise makes Nano Dimmer compact without compromise.
Create the perfect amount of light with Nano Dimmer. It can dim your lights from between 0% and 100%. And it can dim them at perfect speed offering an adjustable ramp rate allowing the brightness of your lights to be adjusted over moments or minutes.
Surge and overload protection
Surges happen and are common, but Nano Dimmer protects against them. With a in-built surge and overload protector, you will never have to worry again. Nano Dimmer not only keeps your lighting connected, it keeps them protected too.
Keep Nano Dimmer compatible and Lighting Engine up to date; Nano Dimmer’s firmware can be updated wirelessly.
Faster than ever
Your lighting should be quick and responsive. Nano Dimmer responds in milliseconds, changing your lights 250% quicker than past generations.
Nano Dimmer is built upon Aeotec’s leading Gen5 technology and is powered by the latest version of Z-Wave – Z-Wave Plus.
Perfect and smooth dimming
Nano Dimmer can be dimmed at 1% increments from 0% right through to 100% brightness. Nano Dimmer offers a customisable ramp rate so that it can dim or brighten as fast or as smooth as you want it to.
Control your lights and control your ceiling fans. Nano Dimmer can be wired to turn select ceiling fans as powerful as 100 watts on and off, and control their speeds.
See your spend
Along with control and dimming, Nano Dimmer includes Aeotec’s energy metering technology for an accurate measurement of how much electricity your lights are spending.
A wireless signal that goes further, stronger. Nano Dimmer’s improved wireless technology is perfect for pass through walls now that it’s 2.5dBM stronger.
Homes have unique lighting and switches. From bulb type to switch type to wiring type to load type, Lighting Engine powers Nano Dimmer’s class-leading dimming compatibility.
Small in size without compromise. Nano Dimmer can control lights and loads that draw up to 1.5 amps of power.
Perfect with low voltage lights
Homes increasingly have low energy lighting that is hard to dim. But not for Nano Dimmer. It can even dim low power LEDs and CFLs that use less than 20 watts through the use of a bypass for Nano Dimmer (sold separately).
The Z-Wave Aeotec Nano Dimmer is Z-Wave Plus Certified. Z-Wave Plus (5th Generation Z-Wave) offers a lot of new features including increased range, extended battery life and Over The Air upgrading (OTA). Take a look at our “What is Z-Wave Plus” guide for more information
