Eco-DIM.07 - Zigbee

Installation on the Vera Plus:

The next controller where we will install the Eco-DIM is the Vera. This has a Zigbee controller on board so it should work without any problems.

The first step is to remove the old dimmer/switch. Well, of course we turn off the power first. Once you have done this, install the dimmer according to the supplied diagram. A 2-wire system is used, so you do not have to pull extra wires. Do not mount the cover plate yet and wait a while to restore the power.

because now we are actually going to install the dimmer on the Vera. Log in to the controller and go to your devices, then click on "add device" and search for Eco dim. It was not found, but we can try adding it as "generic zigbee". When we have clicked on this, I supply the dimmer with power and walk through the steps. If the LED lights up blue, you can press the reset button on the front of the dimmer twice in a row. If the LED lights up red, you have to reset it. You do this by pressing the reset button for 5 seconds. After this, press the reset button 2x again to start adding. The LED will no longer flash but will take on a solid blue color.

It was found by the Vera but at first I only saw an on/off switch and after a while I also got a dim option. What is striking is that the whole sometimes responds a bit slow, but the command is eventually forwarded.
