Wireless battery-powered switch, twofold, Zigbee®


Description

This twofold wireless battery-powered Zigbee® switch allows you to control wireless Zigbee® devices remotely.

Adding a switch to an electrical installation is made easy as cutting, grinding or adding electrical wires is no longer needed. The switch is battery-powered with a lifetime of 5 years with up to 20 short push events per day.

The twofold switch with a plastic base (552-72002) can be mounted on flat surfaces via double-sided adhesive tape (included) or screws (excluded). For installation on flush-mounting boxes, order the twofold switch without a plastic base (552-72012), together with the metal base variant for your region (552-720X0).

The wireless battery-powered Zigbee®switch can operate in 2 modes: stand-alone use and connected use.

In stand-alone use, it is not connected to a wireless smart hub (552-00001) or wireless bridge (550-00640) and operates as a standard dimmer switch (ON/OFF/dimming). The switch can connect with up to eight Zigbee® receivers via Touchlink pairing. A feedback LED displays the pairing state and battery condition during the pairing process. No feedback LED is visible during normal operation. In stand-alone mode, the twofold wireless battery-powered Zigbee® switch does not support colour control (RGB), nor tunable white control (colour temperature).

In connected use, the switch is linked to the wireless smart hub (552-00001) or the wireless bridge for Niko Home Control (550-00640) via an integrated wireless Zigbee® transmitter and receiver. The following functions are available with the Niko Home Control programming software or the Niko Home app:

  • Display a battery low indication in the Home app when the battery needs to be replaced

  • Link the twofold wireless battery-powered Zigbee® switch to a scene or all-off function

  • Configure it to a panic (all-on) function, routine, calendar, or scheduling function

  • Operate multiple lighting circuits within the same installation

  • Control the twofold wireless battery-powered Zigbee® switch via the Niko Home Control touchscreen ( 550-20102 ), Digital black® (550-1800x, 551-1800x) or remotely via a smart device using the Niko Home app.

When connected to your Niko Home Control installation, the twofold wireless battery-powered switch, Zigbee® will automatically be upgraded to the latest firmware version.

Note that the twofold wireless battery-powered Zigbee® switch can also be configured to a third-party Zigbee® network via EZ-mode pairing or Find&Bind pairing. In this case, the switch is used as a standard dimmer switch (ON/OFF/dimming).

The double key and faceplate must be ordered separately. This Zigbee® switch combines with any Niko Pure, Niko Intense and Niko Original faceplate in the colour of your choice. For best performance, follow the installation and radio planning guidelines.

Overview

There are 5 mechanical variants. These variants fit most installations on flat walls and European flush-mounting boxes. Select the desired variant based on the fixing method (wall mounting or flush-mounting box installation, via adhesive tape, screw or claw fixation) and the desired vertical centre distance if multifold flush-mounting boxes are used. For more details, see Installing the wireless battery-powered switch, twofold, Zigbee®.
